Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Bupropion does not cause drowsiness and sleepy felling generally.
Rather it can cause insomnia, anxiety and dizziness.

I have also never seen complaining any patient taking bupropion regarding sleepiness.

Dr. Chintan Solanki.
I will be happy to answer if any other question there.
