Wellbutrin Overview

Bupropion or bupropion hydrochloride, also known formerly as amfebutamone, 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 English-speaking countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, this is an off-label use.[10] Bupropion is taken in tablet form and is a...

Should I get off Wellbutrin ?
Post a Reply
I've been on Wellbutrin since late February. Started on 75mg went up to 300mg. Was experiencing anxiety and over eating. Carbs and sweets cravings. And worst of all I'm still depressed. I'm really seriously thinking of going to see my dr to get me off this crap! The last I need is to gain weight and still feel like crap! Really I think I'm done. It's has always been difficult for me to find and antidepressant that works for me.. Not sure what to do. I also notice I'm angrier on this medication. I need some input please if anyone is experiencing or just how long it took for Wellbutrin to work for them

Has Anyone Tried The Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Sr Made By Sun Pharma Bupropion Hcl
56 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? Have you had any problems with them? ## CVS stopped carrying the Watson generic in March and supply only Sun Pharma brand of Bupropion, which is manufactured in India and distributed in the U.S. by CARACO Pharmaceutical Labs based in Detroit. The pills I took in March ...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
996 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 and weight loss
1 Reply RSS
I began taking Wellbutrin about a year and a half ago. I started at 200 mg. And am still at that dosage. It caused me to lose about 30 pounds, which is great. It gave me energy and suppressed my appetite. But within the past few months I've noticed the medicine doesn't work as well as it used to and I'm gaining the weight back dramatically and my diet is the same. My question is, if my doctor ups the dosage, would it help me lose weight again? Or is my body already used to the medication to where it wouldn't be as beneficial as when I began? ## Hello, Hans! How are you? Upping your dose may help, it usually does cause the side effects to recur, which is basally what you want. Alternatively, you could ask your doctor about trying Contrave, it contains the same active ingr...

Why is my Wellbutrin suddenly making me feel out of it? Could something be wrong with the release mechanism?
15 Replies RSS
I've been taking generic Wellbutrin XL , made by Par pharmaceuticals, for the past months. Has always worked great, no problems. Last week I went to CVS to pick up a refill , and they gave me the same tablets as always, made by Par pharmaceuticals. But all of a sudden, after I take it, I feel really good for about 3 hours and then all of a sudden my mood plummets and I feel foggy and confused for the rest of the day. Could Par have changed something about their release mechanism? Is that possible? I've never had issues with them until now. This has never happened before. I can't figure out what's going on ## Hi Vin, I read an article not too long ago that they had a recall on Wellbutrin because of the new formula was not working, at all. The guy who wrote it has a radio ...

Purple Wellbutrin 150 Mg Sr Generic By Zyben
11 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...

what is the best generic brand of wellbutrin
29 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 HCL SR
2 Replies RSS
I'm a 58 year old woman who had a total hysterectomy at 48 years of age, taking hormone replacement (estradiol cream) I started on Wellbutrin 150 mg., by Sandoz, (pink pill) and was on it for maybe 3 weeks. Did nothing for me. However, I seemed to be angrier and more emotional. Dr increased dosage to 200 SR which I've been taking for a week. Wellbutrin has been in my system for 1 month now and there has been some slight improvement not much. My dr mentioned she might include Effexor with it. Actually my Dr wanted me to take Effexor instead of Wellbutrin, but I preferred Wellbutrin because I was concerned about the weight gain. All I know is that I'm experiencing some of what I did not want on an antidepressant. Although I have not gained weight, I'm hungry, itchy at time...

300mg wellbutrin and 30mg morphine interactions
1 Reply RSS
I take 300mg Wellbutrin every morning. I usually take either Norco or Percocet for pain (10/325's) but i am out right now. Will a 30 or 45mg morphine react badly because i take Wellbutrin? I'm hurting & really want to take one- but don't want to die. ## Hello, Shay! How are you? No, these two should not be taken together. The Wellbutrin can cause you to absorb more of the Morphine than normal, which could result in overdose. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
