You should not stop taking this medication even if you do not feel better at the beginning. Continue to take this medication even after you feel better to prevent your symptoms from returning.Do check with your doctor on the proper length of treatment that you need.
If you are taking Bupropion to quit smoking:Your doctor or pharmacist would have asked you to set a ‘Quit Date’ to stop smoking. Start taking Bupropion as prescribed by your doctor 1 week before the quit date. This medication is normally taken for 7-12 weeks to help you quit smoking. Let your doctor know if you are still smoking after 7 weeks of treatment. Do not stop taking your medication or change the dose without checking with your healthcare professional.
If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is more than half of the time to the next dose, skip the missed dose and take your medication at the usual time. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose.
