I absolutely cannot take Wellbutring under any of its extended or non extended release forms and I have tried over and over expecting different results out of despiration to get off the couch and it always made me rageful and socially paranoid. But this is so not the case with the Patch. If anyone can go by my personal experience, please don't let a wellbutrin failure/disaster stop you from trying the patch. I had the same worry and it is groundless for me.
