Bupropion Overview

Bupropion is a medication primarily used as an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid.[6][7][8] 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,[9] although in many countries this is an off-label use.[10] 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.[11] Bupropion is taken i...

Generic for Wellbutrin
5 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...

Generic Bupropion

Look, folks: You cannot talk about a generic buproprion without determining its manufacturer. There are quite a few generics out there, but it makes no sense to ask questions about a pill's appearance: name its manufacturer instead and then get your discussions going. ## Actually, the appearance can help determine the manufacturer, since some of them look different, but the markings/imprint must be included in the details. Learn more Bupropion details here. And this is true of all medications that are available as generics, not just Bupropion. Are there any comments or questions? ## Who makes the generic Wellbutrin XL150 marked "141" with no name? This is not effective for me and makes me more depressed and anxious and hands shake. ## HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD A PROBLEM WITH GENER...

White oblong non-scored pill with I 71 on one side
2 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?

best generic bupropion 75mg sandoz or apotex
1 Reply RSS
Mhich one is better? My son use to take bupropion Hcl 75mg from Sandoz Pharm. but when we bought our house and moved we swapped Pharmacies. They carry bupropion Hcl 75mg from Apotex Corp. I've noticed that he isn't able to focus as much, he impulse reacts more, and he takes longer to go to sleep, along with other small differences. Can this be because the bupropion from Apotex Corp. doesn't work as well for him as from Sandoz Pharm. I'm almost sure if it to be honest. Should I transfer and fill it elsewhere? ## Most defintely transfer script. Ive been taking Sandoz bupropion and love it. Had it filled the other day, they gave me Mylan brand and it did nothing for me except make my bp go up. Imo Sandoz is holy grail for wellbutrin generic. Hope he gets to feeling better!!

side effects of bupropion
1 Reply 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 ---- 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 ...

switching from bupropion hcl xl to contrave 8/90
1 Reply RSS
I would like to know how to switch from Bupropion HCL XL 300 to Contrave 8/90? I have been taking Bupropion for years. I want to switch over to Contrave. ## Hello, Jessie! How are you? The main issue is going to experiencing some withdrawal effects, since Contrave contains less Bupropion, but your doctor should be able to help you make the switch. You may need to do a taper, before starting the Contrave. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, and nervousness. Has anyone else made the switch? If so can you detail how it was done?

Efficacy of Par Bupropion XL 300
2 Replies RSS
My pharmacy gave me Bupropion XL 300 mg by Par. I thought I'd managed to take every generic Bupropion out there, but this is new to me. I'm not finding a lot of information on line. I know everybody may respond to something differently, but I'd be interested in reading any comments from folks out there who have tried this formulation. I seem to respond at least a little differently to each generic I take, and have had one or two that caused big problems. ## Hello, Lainey! How are you? I understand what you're saying, some people can be sensitive to any slight fluctuation in a medication, I am one of them. There have been several people that have complained about the Par Bupropion, but not all. We are all different, so the only thing you can really do is try it and see ho...

I'm afraid to start taking Bupropion with Tramadol
24 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...

White Oblong pill with I on one side and 13 on the other
6 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 ...

Day 3 of bupropion and smoking twice as much
1 Reply RSS
Started bupropion 3 days ago and wondering why I am hyper and smoking twice as much? How long before I have less urge to stop smoking? ## Hello, Etta! How are you? This medication can cause some people to feel hyper, anxious, and nervous, according to the FDA. When I tried it, years ago, it made me feel like I drank several pots of coffee and I had to stop taking it, never did anything to change my smoking habits. In most cases, side effects are transient, and will improve once your body gets used to a medication, but that may take 4 to 5 weeks. If they worsen, or if they don't improve, you may need to try a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with?
