What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
1147 Replies RSS
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Venlafaxine HCL ER manufactured by Aurobino contact FDA
5 Replies RSS
I have been taking generic Venlafaxine from Tega Pharma for the past 5 years and have had no issues. My pharmacy is now using the Aurbino manufactured version. I had an extream adverse reaction and nearly ended up in the ED. I was basically going through withdrawal. I reported the event to both the drug company and FDA. Please report any issues you are having to the FDA. I found a pharmacy that had the Tega brand and I was back to normal within a day. Something is seriously wrong with the Venlafaxine Aurobino is producing. Please report your issues so the FDA can take action. ## I am currently going through this same issue. Did you contact your prescribing doctor? ## I've been taking ZA-36 XR for a week and just stared experiencing withdraw symptoms. It's good to know I'm no...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
15 Replies RSS
I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...

Trintellix Review
2 Replies RSS
Why did I read that you should not take this medicine till 2020? I was just given a lot of samples of 5mg that my doctor wants me to start for my depression. I am scared to death to start because of the horrible reviews & side effects that sound horrible. I have never heard of this drug. Can you please help me with this. Also if I do decide to start when is the very best time to take it? ## Has anyone else gone down from 10 to 5 mg of trintellix? I am afraid I will have some anxiety doing this. Can anyone give me advice? ## I've been on Brintellix/ Trintellix for going on 2 years. Saved my life. I am on a low dose, with buspar piggy back, but no longer a handful of drugs. If you've failed the rest, give it a shot. Start low. I am great on just 10mg, and I was suffering from ...

Cats & Mirtazapine
144 Replies RSS
Our 13 year old Maine Coon mix is in the last stages of renal failure. We didn't know anything was wrong until about a month ago when she stopped eating. It's been up and down ever since her diagnosis. Our vet prescribed Mirtazapine but, after reading the many negative comments, we put off giving it to her as long as we could. We finally had to because the effects of not eating in cats are liver shutdown and death. She's had no serious adverse reaction to Mirtazapine, and it has definitely helped her appetite. It is buying her a little more quality time with us. I certainly wouldn't use or give this drug lightly, but as some posters have noted, in the end it's a risk v. benefit judgment call. ## I am very sorry to read of what you are going through. I am not very kno...

Side effects to wellbutrin
Post a Reply
So I have been on Lexapro 10mg for a few years and I didnt feel as if it was helping me at all. Plus I was always tired and gaining weight. My doctor suggested switching to wellbutrin. He told me to take a 150mg wellbutrin and lower my Lexapro dose to 5mg for 2 weeks, then to take 300mg wellbutrin and stop Lexapro. I am almost at the 2 week make and I feel like I have so many side effects and I don't know if it's withdrawal or the new meds, or a combo of both, or maybe I am getting sick? I have headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, lightheaded, out of it, dry mouth, stomach pain, gas, jittery, and heart palpitations at times. I'm afraid to start the 300mg and stop the Lexapro in a few days. Do these sound like symptoms of the withdrawal and starting up those drugs? Its not going

Ibogaine for Depression and Pain Management
28 Replies RSS
This thread is to discuss Ibogaine as a means to treat Depression and Pain Management, including, but not limited to, anxiety, IBS, joint pain, brain fog, shortness of breath, backpain, FMS, CFS, anhedonia, sleep problems, racing thoughts, loss of libido -- symptoms which are often associated with depression. I would like to start a discussion on the subject since there is a lack of information regarding Ibogaine as a viable treatment option for Depression. Most information on the web only deals with Addiction treatment. This is an off-shoot of the thread Ketamine for Depression. You can find more information regarding my past history with depression and avenues of treatment that I've pursued in that thread (for example see post # 392 over there). Ibogaine. Ibogaine is the root bark...
