Wellbutrin 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] Bupropion is taken in tablet form and is available only by prescription in most countries.[9] Bupropion acts as an norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI). It is an atypica...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
1068 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...

wellbutrin xl 300mg and different mfg - some work, others dont
Post a Reply
I have taken wellbutrin xl 300 mg for 3 yrs and have experienced very different effects of the drug from different manufacturers, to the point my family has asked if I have been taking my meds. They have been known to make me more severely depressed with the aches and pains, low self esteem, zero libido and severe confusion. Now mind you this happens without skipping, missing or running out of meds. This has happened when I would have meds from one manufacturer that did work and when I got it refilled then I would experience some or all of these severe changes depending on the manufacturer of the drug. Some people call me crazy or that it is just in my head, but when you and your family actually, physically see the changes and you have not wavered on the way you take or the dosage that ...

Zydus - Wellbutrin XL 300mg
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone else had bad experiences with the Zydus Wellbutrin XL? I responded really well to 2x150mg of the Activis brand, for about 6 weeks but 10 days on Zydus 300mg was like coming off it all cold turkey. Nothing done, scatterbrained, tearful and like I was back at square one! Thank God my Walgreen pharmacist had heard this before, called my Dr to get a new Rx for 2x150 Activis and squared it away with my insurance company. Is there anything that can be done? ## I had a 3 month supply of zydus wellbutrin...and it is summer and I feel the most depressed I have felt in a long time. I saw your post and I am going to talk to walgreens and see if I can't try another prescription. I have gained weight and thought when summer came I would feel better. But yesterday was my birthday and I...

Anyone take generic Wellbutrin made by Par pharmaceuticals? How is it working for you? ## I haven't taken this particular manufacturer's generic form of Wellbutrin (Bupropion), but thought I'd provide some additional information on it for those readers who may be trying to compare it with other brands/generics they may or may not have already tried. Bupropion XL made by Anchen Pharmaceuticals (of whom Par Pharmaceuticals purchased in 2011) are the small white round tablets imprinted in black ink with "A 101" or "A 102" for the 150mg/300mg doses, respectively. Each 150mg (A 101) pill reportedly contains the following set of inactive ingredients: alcohol + ethylcelluloses + hydrochloric acid + hydroxypropyl cellulose + povidone + silicon dioxide Each 300mg (A 1...

Hi. After a cocktail of psych meds, I am now on 300mg of generic wellbutrin. Finally, the depression is lifting. I am going thru a move right now and would never have been able to pack up and be motivated if not for the switch to wellbutrin three months ago. I've been through hell. Mania, depression, grief, suicide attempts. I finally look forward to the future. Let me know if I can help any of you. Don't lose hope! ## Awesome! I am so glad you finally found something that works for you! That's fabulous! I have a friend that's been dealing with depression and anxiety, since her dad suddenly passed, and they've not yet found anything that helps her, she's very frustrated. Are you experiencing any of the typical side effects that the FDA lists, such as nausea, dizz...

wellbutrin and confusion
1 Reply RSS
I take 300 MG wellbutrin but seems to confuse and disorient me. I am diabetic type 2 and take glimpsed 2 mg., Adderall and opana. Could these be confusing me? ## Hello, El! How are you? Wellbutrin can cause that as a side effect in some people that take it, as reported by the FDA. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, nervousness and insomnia. Most side effects are usually transient and will go away in time, once your body gets used to a medication, but that may take 3 to 4 weeks. However, it they worsen, or don't go away, it could be that it's not the right medication for you and you may have to try something else. Is there anything else I can help with?

67 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.

what is the best generic brand of wellbutrin
30 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 ...

Wellbutrin 300xl & Deplin 15
1 Reply RSS
What are the affects of combining Welbutrin xl 300 and Deplin 15? I've been on Welbutrin for more than 10 years. Recently went to the doctor complaining of lack of focus, concentration and memory loss. She prescribed the Deplin to take with the Welbutrin. After one dose I feel agitated and irritable. I couldn't find anywhere when I researched that Deplin helps with concentration and focus. Everything I read says it helps depression by boosting the antidepressant you're on. Funny thing, my Welbutrin side effects say it can cause lack of concentration. ? Wondering if anyone has any insight. ## Yes, those symptoms can be normal side effects of Wellbutrin, as reported by the FDA, and taking the Deplin would only augment them and make them worse, just like it helps augment the ac...
