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 ...

Bupropion HCL 150mg 24HR SA Tab
Post a Reply
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.

White oblong non-scored pill with I 71 on one side

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...

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...

Bupropion side effects upon discontinuing
1 Reply RSS
I decided to stop taking this drug and am experiencing extreme fatigue and dizziness. Is this to be expected? ## Yes, those can be typical withdrawal effects, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, fever, chills, rebound depression, and anxiety. How long have you been taking it and what was your dosage? Are you on any other medications?

I'm afraid to start taking Bupropion with Tramadol
27 Replies RSS
I was just prescribe Bupropion 150mg 2x daily. I also take Tramadol which was prescribed by the same Dr. I'm afraid to start the Bupropion because of the drug interaction btwn the two. Should I be worried? Can I cut the tablets in half & take 75mg 2x daily? ## Hi Donna, After looking over the interaction between these two medications, I can certainly see why you might be scared to take them together. The interaction I found states the following: "MONITOR CLOSELY: The risk of seizures may be increased during coadministration of tramadol with any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, neuroleptic agents, central nervous system stimulants, opioids, tricy...

cutting a 100mg bupropion tablet in half
1 Reply RSS
Can a Bupropion HCL 100 MG tablet (blue, M one side, 435 other side) be cut in half? I have not read that it's an extended release, which I understand can not be cut. ## Yes, that is a regular release tablet, so you can cut it in half, if necessary, as long as your doctor, or pharmacist approves. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?

I'm getting my perscription in the morning. i am already an agrivated, agressive person. i'm afraid of this getting worse. any advice? ## Have you started taking it, yet? It may not worsen those traits in your, it may actually help them improve, since it is an antidepressant. Those paradoxical effects don't happen to everyone that takes it. Learn more Bupropion details here. Are you experiencing any side effects? ## I can only speak from my own experience and tell you that it did not happen to me. I am extraordinarily aggressive and sharp with people. It may have leveled me out, paradoxically. ## Hi Julie, I am in the same boat. I picked up my script yesterday and after googling it to death decided I was going to start it. MMD and Anxiety for 21 yrs, plus over weight and a s...

bupropion and percocet
Post a Reply
Generic bupropion 75mg lavender tablet with gg 929 markings was miraculous for me. And i felt the antidepressant success almost immediately. Then i felt a need to increase to 150 mg by taking a second one 6 to 12 hrs later. I was also using percocet 5, prescribed for severe chronic pain. Suddenly, although weakened by running out of the percocet 5's, I FELT LIKE I WAS WEAKENED AND EXHAUSTED. COULD THIS BE A TEMPORARY SIDE EFFECT OF GENERIC WELLBUTRIN? The first time i took bupropion i experienced an increased energy level but i was taking percocet 5 for pain as well.

Bupropion XL by Cipla Pharmaceuticals
19 Replies RSS
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 ...
