Depression Home > Welbutrin SR

Were you looking for information about Wellbutrin SR? Welbutrin SR is a common misspelling of Wellbutrin SR.
A healthcare provider may prescribe Wellbutrin SR® (bupropion SR) to treat the symptoms of depression, which can be caused when certain chemicals of the brain become unbalanced. Wellbutrin SR works by helping to keep these chemicals (norepinephrine and dopamine) balanced. The medication comes in a tablet form that is taken by mouth usually twice a day. You should take Wellbutrin SR at the same times each day to maintain an even level of the drug in your blood. Because Wellbutrin SR can interact with other medications, it is important to tell your healthcare provider (prior to taking Wellbutrin SR) about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
