What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
1402 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...

>>>>26 yo female - 450mg once daily<<<< I've been on Wellbutrin for proabably about a year and a half and it helps so much with depression and it helped me lose weight! The pounds were dropping! I also was doing weight watchers but even when I ate horrible I would lose or not gain, at all! Now.... it's not helping me with weight loss? My depression is at bay but it's not helping me keep weight off anymore... has anyone else have this happen? Idk what to do... advice please. ## Wellbutrin by itself is generally weight neutral and doesn't cause weight gain, or weight loss. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Has anything else changed, such as your diet, or activity level...

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis
9 Replies RSS
I've been taking the generic brand PAR of Buproion LX 300MG for over 2 years and haven't run into any problems. Walgreens switched the brand to Actavis generic this month and I feel extremely depressed. I plan on seeking medical attention from my doctor right away-- but I'd like to hear about your experiences to not feel so alone. I started taking Actavis around January 15th and I've noticed my mood has completely shifted and no longer feel like myself. PAR seemed to work well for me. Before I switched brands my depression was manageable but now it's out of control. I constantly feel angry, annoyed, and highly irritated and it scares me. Can generic brands of the same exact medication cause your mental health to decline? ## Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your reaction ...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
41 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...

Purple Wellbutrin 150 Mg Sr Generic By Zyben
13 Replies RSS
I WAS TAKING WELLBUTRIN SR. 150MG X 3 A DAY. THE PILLS WERE PURPLE, AND IN GENERIC, AND LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT ON IT. HOW EVER, I DIDN'T KNOW THAT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ONE CO. TO ANOTHER, AND GOT YELLOW OR WHITE WELLBUTRIN, AND I GAINED 40 POUNDS IN 7 MONTH TIME. I THINK THE PURUPLE ONES WERE BY ZYBEN BUT I KNOW THEY WERE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR ME. DOES ANY ONE HAD THIS EXPERIANCE LIKE THAT, AND TELL ME WHAT DRUG CO. THEY USED? THANK-YOU, VERED ## Yes, there can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one company to the other and the inactive ingredients can be completely different. If you gained that much weight, then there's a good chance that you were getting more of the active ingredient than usual, because weight gain can be a normal side effect of th...

I took a drug test for employment and failed... The drug test came out positive for methamphetamine. I said what, I don't do drugs - I only take wellbutrin for depression everyday. This was very embarrassing. I got a note from my dr to help my case but someone needs to do something about this medicine. Goodness, how many good ppl have failed because of this medicine? ## I took one wellbutrin xl 150 mg. Will it be out of my system in 6 days when I have a 10 panel urine test?

Wellbutrin testing positive for methamphetamine

I just got out off jail and did not use, but was dirty for methamphetamine. I do take Wellbutrin. How does this happen? ## I don't know but it sure does. And causes a lot of undue stress. I'm stopping the Wellbutrin. Screw that. ## I keep testing positive for methamphetamine and do not use and am not around any drugs. I was on the drug patch and it kept showing up in really low levels like negative, then 220, then negative, then 50. I am at a loss of words. Now I switched to U/A's. I am scared s***less because I am being accused of using and I am not and now cps is threatening to take my child from me. I am prescribed wellbutrin but I rarely take it. The time I failed the only thing I can think that I did different is take the wellbutrin. Can this make me fail? If not what c...

Wellbutrin - making me go crazy?
5 Replies RSS
Hopefully someone sees this, I've never been on this site before. My doctor increased my Wellbutrin to 450 mg about 2 months ago. I feel like I am slowly losing it, and I never thought that maybe it could be the Wellbutrin. I'm always agitated. I'm never comfortable, never relaxed. I am doing obsessive things like washing my hands repeatedly, making sure everything in the room is perfectly neat and straight. I can't cry anymore. I seem perfectly fine when I talk to people, but my mind feels like a mess. I'm focused and I do what I need to do every day, but I feel no joy, just agitation. I always feel like I need to do something and I'm always nervous about something, even if there's nothing to be nervous about. Has anyone ever taken Wellbutrin and experienced...

Wellbutrin Stopped Working- Please help!
9 Replies RSS
Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am desperate for support and hoping I can get some advice from people who may have had a similar experience. I feel like I'm drowning- like the life has been sucked out of me. I've felt depressed ever since I was 12 years old. I wasn't suicidal, but I felt a general lack of motivation for life. I couldn't find happiness in anything, and just getting out of bed was a struggle most days. At age 21 I decided to do something about it and got a script for the generic version of Wellbutrin XL (300mg) for roughly 2 years. In the beginning it was a miracle drug- I was able to get out of bed in the morning, I was super motivated, lost some weight, and felt like a normal human being- until at some point it stopped working, so I tapered off and even...

Wellbutrin is no Longer Working | Depression
6 Replies RSS
I've been taking Wellbutrin for 7 years. Over the years my doctor has increased the dosage to combat the loss of effectiveness due to tolerance. Now, it no longer works. I'm bedridden, have stopped working and have trouble with activities that involve movement, like washing dishes. Doing laundry is a huge accomplishment. Anyway, I've been on imipramine for 7 years, a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) of the dibenzazepine group. Anyway, I'm curious about Selegiline, an MAO-B, (its also calledAnipryl, L-deprenyl, Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar). Has anyone tried it to boost Wellbutrin? How about something to boost acetylcholine? How about COMT? It's critical that I get something like Wellbutrin to work. What is the standard replacement? What are some on the synergetic boosters?...

Can Wellbutrin SR be taken once a day?
1 Reply RSS
Recently I started taking Wellbutrin SR (generic). I'm prescribed 100 mg twice daily. However, I've been taking been taking all 200 mg once a day in the morning. Ultimately, is the SR version still effective if only taken once a day? Why do people usually take it twice a day? Will I experience any disadvantages by taking it all at once? Today is my 8th day on Wellbutrin. I definitely feel SOME improvement. ## It is usually best to take it twice daily, as directed, due to the fact that its efficacy depends on it being maintained at a certain level in your body. Taking them both, at once, does not provide you a full 24 hours of medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help w...

80 Replies RSS
Hi - I just got a perscription for the Sun Pharma generic version of Wellbutrin SR (Bupropion HCL SR). Has anyone had success with this one? If not which generic version have you had success with? ## Whatever generic worked for someone else may not work for you and vice versa. Learn more Wellbutrin SR details here. The only way to find out what works for you is to actually try it and see. If one generic doesn't work for you, then you can consult your pharmacist to see what else is available. Have you started them yet?

tbx free drug interactions
2 Replies RSS
I take Wellbutrin and amphetamine. Is this ok with TBX free? Is there any reason I can't take these medications together? ## Has anyone used TBX Free while taking antidepressants? If so did you have problems? I'm worried about complications. ## I was unfortunately unable to locate any specific reference of a drug interaction between TBX and other medications, I think, primarily because its active ingredient (Cytisine) is a plant derived alkaloid that's non-existent in standard Western medical literature. That said, if it were me I'd probably try to get in touch with the prescribing doctor as well as a naturopathic doctor just to cover all bases. Please post back with any updates on how things work out.

What are interactions of Wellbutrin XL and Tranxene? ## Hello, Daisy! How are you? I haven't found any interactions listed, but you should always double check such information to be certain. Wellbutrin may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, weight changes and dry mouth. Tranxene carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, irritability and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## wellbutrin and tranxene together and I feel like I am forgetful and tired.

what is the best generic brand of wellbutrin
34 Replies RSS
FYI: The drug manufacturer Watson bought out Activist. Watson "made a business decision" to no longer produce the Watson generic brand of Wellbutrin and only produce the Activist version. Watson was the brand that worked for me (I've tried many) so it's unfortunate they have made this business decision. I've called the company to request they continue to manufacture the Watson version. Anyone going through the same situation may want to call Watson 1-800-272-5525. *** if anyone takes a generic that doesn't work they should notify the F.D.A. 1-855-543-3784. ## Thank you for sharing this info Trace. Ever since Actavis bought out Watson, it seems like most of their meds have all started to go down hill. I mean if they're making these kinds of business decisions ...

Taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg... Contemplating increasing the dose to 450mg Forfivo. Please share your Forfivo reviews. Thank you. ## They both contain the same active ingredient, so you'd just be changing your dosage. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and nervousness. I can't take this medication, I react badly to it. Can anyone that's taken it chime in with their experience?

Wellbutrin and anxiety
1 Reply RSS
Does anyone else have major anxiety while taking Wellbutrin xl ? I started taking 300mg in September and it has lifted my depression immensely . But the anxiety is really getting bad and makes me question every decision I make in day to day life . I feel like I'm going crazy ! Anyone else have this issue or even advice /opinions would be helpful ! ## Unfortunately, the FDA lists anxiety as being one of the most common side effects that this medication is known to cause, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and nervousness. I tried it years ago, for smoking cessation, and it made me feel like I had just drunk several pots of coffee, so I had to stop taking it. Have you informed your doctor?
