Category: Antidepressant



Bupropion Overview

Bupropion is a medication primarily used as an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid.[7][8][9] It is marketed as Wellbutrin and Zyban among other trade names. It is one of the most frequently prescribed antidepressants in the United States and Canada,[10] although in many countries this is an off-label use.[11] It is an effective antidepressant on its own, but is also popular as an add-on medication in cases of incomplete response to first-line SSRI antidepressants.[12] Bupropion is taken ...

CIPLA Bupropion HCL XL meeting Wellbutrin XL bioequivalence?
1 Reply RSS
CIPLA got approval from the FDA to produce their generic version of Wellbutrin XL on August 30, 2016. I have made an inquiry to CIPLA as to whether their approval also means that they met the bioequivalence testing that other generic manufacturers had to comply with after Teva/Impax was pulled off the market in Sept. 2012 -- and Actavis (now owned by Watson) was removed Oct. 2013. [Second Generic Version of Popular Antidepressant to be Pulled from Market for Bioequivalency Issues]. Not sure if they have this problem corrected. Anyone know about Cipla or Watson/Actavis? ## For anyone else who may be wanting to contact Cipla USA regarding this concern, you can reach their customer service department by phone at: 844-CIPLA US (844-247-5287) or via email at: ciplacs@ups.com Furthermore, it...

Bupropion XL by Cipla Pharmaceuticals

My pharmacy has been giving me refills of the generic bupropion for my last two refills that are manufactured by CIPLA. The pill is oblong and has the number 13 on one side and what appears to be a capital I on the other side. I do not feel that this generic is doing much for me. I have researched this manufacture they are located in India. Approximately 45% of the medications that are sold in the United States are manufactured in foreign countries. I am going to call my pharmacy to see if they can get one of the generics that were previously dispensed to me. The buyers for drugs at pharmacies look to find lower priced drugs, which I understand. I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150 mg three tablets daily for about eight years including the generic form. This medication helped my severe ...

Bupropion XL by Mylan Pharmaceuticals

Hi everyone. I'm a 39 year old male and on Day 6 of 150mg Bupropion XL. I am wondering how long it takes Mylan Bupropion XL to start working? Also how long does it take to get the increased libido effects that everyone mentions? Currently a little down and even with Viagra, I have a hard time. ## It may take about 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. As to the side effects, according to the U.S. FDA, it doesn't increase your response/libido, it is that it usually doesn't cause the same loss of libido as other similar medications. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of seizures. Are you on any other medications?

Bupropion: How did it effect your digestion?
2 Replies RSS
Hey everbody, for those on Bupropion, how did it effect your digestion? Especially those, who are having/had a "good" digestion with like 2 or 3 times defecation a day - did the Bupropion somehow made you constipated so that you couldnt go that often any more? And how long after the first pill did this start? Thanks much! ## This medication could cause constipation as a side effect, according to NIH reports, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. However, it really is not normal to defecate 2 to 3 times a day. Most people go once a day, or less. Has anyone else experienced this issue with this medication? Most people go once a day, or as little as once a week. ## Ofc it is normal to go 2-3 times a day (just check the transit times of food); howeve...

White oblong non-scored pill with I 71 on one side
22 Replies RSS
Supposed to be bupropion hcl XL 300mg, but this is not the usual generic, and I can't find it online. ## Yes, that is the correct medication, it is manufactured by Cipla USA. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was prescribed the same pill, also not my norm and also for Bupropion HCL XL 300 mg, It does say CIPLA on the bottle also. I thought it looked odd, so I googled it and was surprised to not find any info except for this thread. Did you have any problems? ## I have started gaining weight since I received. This is the only thing different I have taken in years. ## I began taking the Cipla version of Bupropion HCL XL 300mg 4 days ago. Each day I've ha...

White Oblong pill with I on one side and 13 on the other
12 Replies RSS
I picked up my prescription for bupropion HCL XL and noticed the shape and imprint is different than it's ever been. It is an oblong tablet with "I" on one side and 13 on the other. There are no score lines. I'm unable to find it through any search and want to make sure it's the correct medication. Any help is appreciated. ## It's just a change in Manufacturer. I noticed the difference too today when picking up my prescription. If you go to Cipla USA's website, they have the image and description of the updated pill. Before this one, I had the round pill with A 101 printed on it, but that was manufactured by a different company. ## I have been trying to find this same pill I picked up at my pharmacy days ago. My bupropion xl never looked like this. Thank you ...

side effects of bupropion
3 Replies RSS
My husband was put on bupropion hydrochloride 100mg in september 2016. Within 3 weeks that dosage was upped to 150 mg, twice a day (300mg total). Then the first week of december 2016 the dosage was upped to 450 mg (highest dose ever given). He was to take 350 mg in the am and 150mg at 1:00 pm. Within one week on 450 mgs, his fingers in right hand are all numb! All fingers but thumb. He is right handed and cannot pick up anything. Very difficult to hold a fork - to shave - or to do anything! I am currently backing him off of bupropion and praying to god we can get back the feeling in his right hand! Unless your body is seriously pharmaceutical chemical deficient, I would most definitely try to get well without the use of chemicals. They, prescribed chemicals, have wrecked his life as wel...

Bupropion HCL 150mg 24HR SA Tab
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking this medication for almost 4 weeks. The first two weeks taking the medication was great, but these last two weeks has been horrible. I've been having motion sickness for two weeks and a lil dizziness every once in awhile. It has helped with my nightmares, but I get so discouraged because the motion sickness is depressing. I wanted to see if the A101 pill or the 3331 150mg pill will make a difference. I've seen XL, SA and SR and it all confuses me why there are so many pills that are related to this medication. I am going to see if my Dr. can change it to a different number, the #13 pill is terrible. ## When a medication is available as a generic it is usually manufactured by various different pharmaceutical companies, whichever one you receive from any given...

Generic for Wellbutrin
14 Replies RSS
The new bottle I received today contained an oblong pill manufactured by Clipla USA. I have been taking a round pill manufactured by PAR. Are these the same except the manufacturer? ## I have always taken Par (their subsidiary Anchen made the bupropion). Today I was told Par has stopped making it and was given Cipla. I have had major issues with other generic brands of Wellbutrin and am nervous about not having Par/Anchen anymore. The other generics were not the same, and bupropion historically has been the subject of many issues with inequitable generics. ## Hello, Kathryn and MK! What are the markings on the pills in question? Sometimes what's listed by the pharmacy is a licensed distributor, rather than the actual manufacturer. Have either of you tried it? If so, is it working fo...
