FAQs

What is Bupropion XL?

Bupropion XL is a prescription drug that comes in the form of an extended-release tablet to be taken by mouth. As it is an extended-release tablet, it is released in your body slowly.

What are the uses of Bupropion XL?

Bupropion is an antidepressant. It triggers the activity of natural chemicals in your brain, such as norepinephrine and dopamine, which are responsible for improving your mood. The nerves take up these chemicals to send messages among them. Bupropion is thus used to manage:

  • Depression
  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
It can also be used to help you stop smoking.

How do you use Bupropion XL?

Bupropion XL is a medication to be taken by mouth. Read the medication guide before taking it.Here are certain things to know before taking it:

  • Take the tablet orally as directed by your doctor. It is usually taken once in a day, preferably in the morning.
  • Take the exact dose as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it too often or take a higher dose than advised.
  • Swallow the whole tablet.
  • Do not chew or crush the tablet. Doing so will release all the medicine at once, increasing the probability of side-effects.
  • Do not split the tablet unless told by your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Avoid taking it late in the day as it may cause trouble sleeping.
  • In case you have an upset stomach, take the medication after or with a snack or meal.
  • Take medicine regularly, preferably at the same time every day. Do not skip the medication without consulting your doctor.
If you forget a dose:
  • Take it as soon as you remember it the same day and carry on as usual from the next day
  • If you completely forget the dose for the whole day, skip it and carry on, as usual, the next day
  • Do not take double the dose to compensate for the missed dose
