> Okay so here's the story:
> Wellbutrin isn't licensed for use in the UK as an AD, but it is licensed for smoking cessatation. So I had a hard time convincing my doc that I thought that I needed the wellbutrin for an AD.
> He is a pretty amenable doc, which is a relief and why I keep going back to him!! He had no idea what dosage etc to precribe so he looked up an american patients records and who he is prescribing med for under the prescription from an american pdoc. So there you go.
> So I now have a prescription for wellbutrin, well bupropion hydrocl. MR 150mg once a day.
> I think he says that I can increase the dose to two a day eventually, I guess that would mean one am and one pm.
> What dosages do PBabblers use and what type of wellbutin, ie XL SR or MR???? I really need help here because my doc didn't have a clue and it won't be in the leaflet thing.
> The reason why I got him to do it is because I haven't tried it before, and I'm hoping it will help with my ADD tendancies. Also because I knew he would give me a prescription, and I am moving to a different part of the country I didn't what to go to a new doc only to be told no. I am thinking that I should probably augument with an SSRI eventually (I can't handle the side effects of a SSRI) and this way its easier to convince the doc that I should use wellbutrin as well.
> Here in the UK virtually no GPs prescribe wellbutrin + SSRI because wellbutrin isn't licensed for use as an AD. Which is such a shame. And they think we are the crazy ones????????
> Sigh.

Wellbutrin SR is availabale generically and cheap. XL is expensive and I have heard of people finding it hard to sleep on it.
