HELEN Says:


I took one (1) week of the new generic drug (Budeprion XL) and went to my doctor's appointment. She told me that the Wellbutrin XL now has a generic pill but I was not to take the generic. I told her I had just refilled my prescription and received the generic brand, so she wrote a new prescription for Brand Only. I don't know what the difference is, but thought it might be useful information for someone out there.

I know this was submitted years ago, but still today, in 2011, I can not take the generic Wellbutrin. I have tried here and there over 6 years to take the generic and it is like I am not taking anything. My insurance pays almost nothing toward the brand and I pay $280 a month out of pocket, but this medication works so well for me, that it is worth it. I have however noticed recently that the medication seems to be alot stronger, I had to cut back on my dosage. The doctor raised my dosage about the time the generic came out, bcuz the brand seemed to get weaker. Around Aug or Sept 2011, I felt like the medicine was too strong. After a little research, I found that Glaxo sold this drug to another company and it is very strong now.

Helen, why did she tell you not to take the generic? That is very odd, since how well any generic works can vary from person to person.

Nancy, which generics did you try? There are several on the market, and under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, they can vary from name brand by as much as plus of minus 20% in the amount of the active ingredient.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes.
