round in shape, white, or off white , in color ,with a G on one side and the numbers 2444 on the other side. the pill is a tablet pill. ## This is generic 150mg time released Buproban, otherwise known as Welbutrin XL. It is a different type of antidepressant that is suppose to help when other antidepressants fail. Also, this medication is sometimes used for behavioral and/or emotional problems. ## The identification provided is correct, it is commonly used to treat anxiety, and as a smoking cessation aid, though it is not listed as being time released. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Sandoz Bupropion SR 150 Mg - Same Medication, Different Manufacturer

Has anyone had a problem when having to switch their medication to another manufacturer? For the past 4 months I have SUCCESSFULLY been taking Bupropion SR 150 Mg manufactured by Mylan, sold by CVS (it is a light green round pill).....Unfortunately, my insurance recently forced me to go through Medco mail order and I received dark purple round pills manufactured by SANDOZ. Since taking these purple pills I have become sick daily. I have been experienced nausea, not seeing clearly (double vision or something weird like that), vertigo, motionsickness, extreme temperature fluctuations, not being able to concentrate, etc, etc, etc..... So I immediately switched back to purchasing this medication from CVS (Mylan) and my nasty symptoms disipated quickly and I am back to "me" again! My...

Viibryd Weight Gain

I originally got on the web today to research how to loose weight gained from medication. I have been on Viibryd for 6 months for Major Depressive disorder. I currently take 40 mg. It should be noted taking Viibryd has changed me from a size 0 to size 6. 20lbs. My appetite at times especially in the evening is RAVENOUS. I am embarrassed by how much I can eat and not be full. I have been nonchalant about a few pounds here and there but it devestated me yesterday when i caught a glimpse of CELLULITE on my backside. Nothing else has changed in my medicines or routine. I have always been slim. I have compassion for any who have been trying to figure out if Viibryd is causing their body to change physically. I also will comment on other side effects in another post. My memory is compromised ...

Is Zytomil the same as Lexamil?

The chemist gave me Zytomil but I have been on Lexamil for 12 years. Is it the same or am I going to start side effects again? ## Hello diane, Both Zytomil and Lexamil contain the same active ingredient Escitalopram Oxalate, so to some degree yes the drugs are the same. What may seperate these pills is what inactive ingredients they use which will determine a number of things including how long it takes you to absorb the drug, flavor, release timing, administration technique etc. I don't see a reason that you would start experiencing adverse effects so long as you don't react poorly to the new inactive ingredients. If you do start to have problems inform your doctor as soon as you can to ensure that you are still safe to administer the medication. I hope you have a great day, le...

Can cymbalta cause false positive tests for methamphetamine?

I'm in a hospital paralyzed from my T-6 down becuz of an abscess which was MRSA on that vertebrae in my spine! Well my Dr came in this morning and told me he's not going to give me anymore narcotic pain meds! He claims I'm testing positive for meth! My question is, cymbalta's the ONLY new drug I'm taking. Does Cymbalta cause false positives for methamphetamine? ## I'm also testing positive for methamphetamines and I take Cymbalta - I have never taken methamphetamines in my life. ## I took my first drug test today after being put on this damn antidepressant and the doctor called and told me I need blood work cause I tested positive for methamphetamines, and that's the only new drug I've been put on. I'm very upset. ## Can Azithromycin cause a false pos...

sertraline 100mg by combitic global caplet pvt ltd india

I've have been taking sertraline (zoloft) for years under prescription by a doctor. Now I moved to another country and decided to order it online at combitic global caplet pvt ltd in india. They delivered the pills quickly in an envelope without packaging or users information. I'm not quite sure though, this is the real thing. I've been taking the pills for 3 weeks now and I'm not really sure they work. I sometimes have these contracting sensations at my temples that are typical for depression and that I usually don't have with sertraline. Anyone with some input? ## Are there any markings on the tablets? That is what would enable someone to research them for you to see what they contain. The FDA classifies Sertraline as an SSRI antidepressant and lists its typical si...

what does GE on a prescription mean

I have been taking Burpropion HCL SR 150mg for about 4 months now and I recently got my refill for the next three months. However, instead of saying "Bupropion HCL SR 150MG Tablet" It now says "G.E. Bupropion HCL SR 150MG Tablet". My pills also used to be white with a distinct chemical smell, but these new pills are purple and have a fruity smell. I just want to make sure it isn't a change in composition as I have been taking these routinely for my major depressive disorder and have seen great progress and don't want to have a regression. Thanks for any info! ## Are there any markings on them? When initials, or an abbreviation is listed, before a drug name, it usually stands for the manufacturer. Bupropion may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mo...
