To split or not to split Wellbutrin SR

Posted by TerryW on February 7, 2003, at 14:48:08

The warning from GSK says not to split Wellbutrin SR. However, I found that I was too agitated on the prescribed 100mg of Wellburtin SR, which I was taking to counteract the sexual SE of 10 mg of Lexapro.

I discontinued the use of Wellbutrin after less than one week due to the extreme agitation and tension, which was unpleasant and, most importantly, counterproductive to the positive effects of the Lexapro.

Several Questions:

1. Why is there the warning not to split the Wellbutrin?
2. Has any one done split their pills without adverse effects or dimishment of the drug's efficacy?
3. Has anyone else experienced the hightened level of agitation and tension when jut starting Wellbutrin SR? Does this effect eventually fade? (I did not have this problem on 400 mg [I think] of regular Welburtin several years ago.)

Thanks and good luck to everyone.
