I accidentally took twice my normal dosage of Burpropion HCL

This answer was rated:

I accidentally took twice my normal dosage of Burpropion HCL XL. I took 150 mg at 12:30 today like normal, and instead of taking my Nexium tonight, I wasn't paying attention and accidentaly took another 150 mg of Bupropion at around 6:20 p.m. I had a whole host of unpleasant side effects getting on this medication initially and so I am a bit concerned of what I may experience now having doubled up. What should I do, or what symptoms should I watch for?
Hello and thank you for using our service. My name is ***** ***** I will be answering your question tonight.

Don't worry...this will not present a problem. Just skip your dose tomorrow and it will all even out in your blood stream.

Hope this helps,

Ok. I guess I am more scared than anything else. So you don't think I'll experience any weird side effects?

No, you will be okay. It would take a longer duration increased dose to cause side effects. This can just be considered tomorrow's dose.
