Were you looking for information about Wellbutrin XL? Wellbutrin XR is a common misspelling of Wellbutrin XL.
Wellbutrin XL® (bupropion XL) is a prescription drug that is approved to treat depression and prevent seasonal affective disorder. The medication works by allowing certain chemicals (dopamine and norepinephrine) to stay in the brain for a longer period of time. Available in the form of a tablet, the product is taken once a day in the morning.
Most people tolerate it well, but side effects have been known to occur. Possible side effects of the medication include headaches, dry mouth, and weight loss. If the side effects become too bothersome, or if the medication does not work as well as intended, alternatives to the medicine are available, including other depression medications and psychotherapy.
