Generic Name: Xarelto
What is Xarelto?
Posted February 20, 2013That thread has a lot of info that helped me get this far, but doesn't go beyond quartering tablets. I guess I'm the first to need it. The drug has a short half-life in the immediate release version, hence the TID dosing if a solution.
My only defense for being so high-maintenance is that it's the 4th drug I've come off starting last summer, first on this website. I sometimes take it only 6 or 5 days a week and was going to do it that way, but once when I got to 5 days, started getting an excess of nasty, self-critical thoughts.
Posted August 16, 2013Ask your pharmacist if it is timed-release. Read this topic for tips on how to taper with various types of Wellbutrin. However,I want to be sure that I'm understanding this correctly. Are you saying that at first I should switch from the buproprion 150XL to to a 75SR taken twice a day.
The only difference is the frequency of the dosage: Immediate release IR : 3 times a day dosing Sustained release SR : 2 times a day dosing Extended release XR or XL : Once a day dosing Name-brand Wellbutrin XL was manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline but is currently manufactured by Valeant Pharmaceuticals.
No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these subjects and younger subjects, and other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients, but greater sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be ruled out.
The risk of toxic reaction to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Information on additional adverse events associated with the sustained-release formulation of bupropion in smoking cessation trials, as well as the immediate-release formulation of bupropion, is included in a separate section see Other Events Observed During the Clinical Development and Postmarketing Experience of Bupropion.
The figures cited cannot be used to predict precisely the incidence of untoward events in the course of usual medical practice where patient characteristics and other factors differ from those that prevailed in the clinical trials. These incidence figures also cannot be compared with those obtained from other clinical studies involving related drug products as each group of drug trials is conducted under a different set of conditions.
In addition to the adverse events noted above, the following events have been reported in clinical trials and postmarketing experience with the sustained-release formulation of bupropion in depressed patients and in nondepressed smokers, as well as in clinical trials and postmarketing clinical experience with the immediate-release formulation of bupropion.
Also observed were abnormal ejaculation, cystitis, dyspareunia, dysuria, gynecomastia, menopause, painful erection, salpingitis, urinary incontinence, urinary retention, and vaginitis. These scales measure general feelings of euphoria and drug desirability. Nonetheless, evidence from single-dose studies does suggest that the recommended daily dosage of bupropion when administered in divided doses is not likely to be especially reinforcing to amphetamine or stimulant abusers.
However, higher doses that could not be tested because of the risk of seizure might be modestly attractive to those who abuse stimulant drugs.

Thanks, Diana Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Posted December 27, 2012 Really that's like asking "how long is a piece of string" because the thing is, we're all different, some can taper off a drug relatively fast or even cold turkey but that's not recommended whilst others, like me and many others can take years.
It has a stimulating component. Listen to your body, you should be able to go off Wellbutrin with systematic tapering. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Posted December 28, 2012 thank you for your prompt response. Thanks, Meimeiquest Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Posted February 20, 2013 Is this any help. Not sure about twice or thrice daily doses though, someone else asked about this and I would have thought for practical reasons when you get to lower doses and the maths gets fiddly once daily dose would be easiest to manage.
