it took some looking, but under the rx list for wellbutrin i.r. is the side effect <1% hypothermia.

for me it goes something like this: if i take any dose (sr or ir) 100mg or more, my body temperature dives to 96 degrees. (which is pretty cold since i am also thin.)

if i take ir, i feel it kick in within 5 minutes of swallowing it. if i take sr i feel it kick in just the same. the ir remains steady for 4 hours then sharply drops off. the sr slowly increases to peak within 2 hours and then sharply drops off leaving me med-less until the next dose some 6-8 hours later (on the sr.) the sr also does not come in 75mg doses.

so that leaves me with taking 75mg i.r. every 4 hours that i am awake. my body temp. doesn't fluctuate, and i've responded well on it. but in the morning i am totally out of it until i take my first dose of the day and let myself stabilize on it before getting out of bed.


that's my saga. i'm thankful for the help, but it is tedious.
