In your experience, what is the dosage of Wellbutrin needed to treat ADHD symptoms (or more specifically, the inattentive type...but general ADHD is fine)?

I've been on 150mg/day Wellbutrin XL for a month and it did pretty much nothing except make me a little hornyer. Went up to 300mg/day...maybe a little more positive? Increased anxiety though. Still taking 300mg...probably will go up to 450mg.

I was on Wellbutrin 150 mg for about 6 weeks then 300 mg for the last 7 months or so. It has helped a lot with the depression but not as much for the ADHD symptoms.

I have seen a lot of folks on here at 450 mg.

I have also had people say (to me when I was wondering similar things prior to starting on Vyvanse) that Wellbutrin may be helpful for very mild ADHD but not for moderate to severe, in which case Wellbutrin combined with a stimulant may be more helpful.

Hope that helps.
