Wellbutrin Xl

Wellbutrin XL, also known under the generic name buproprion, is a brand-name drug that is usually prescribed to manage the symptoms of depression. Wellbutrin XL is an extended-release version of Wellbutrin, which means that the medication is slowly released into the body. Wellbutrin XL may also be prescribed to help people quit smoking, treat bipolar disorder, manage symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Wellbutrin XL affects chemicals in the brain known as neurotransmitters, which send messages back and forth, and particularly impacts the neurotransmitter called dopamine. Wellbutrin XL can cause side effects, including vomiting or nausea, tremors, feeling dizzy, headaches, and dryness of the mouth. People taking Wellbutrin XL may also feel unusually excitable or experience weight loss.
