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 GENERIC BUPROPION 150mg XL, MANUFACTURED BY PAR PHARMACEUTICALS (white round pill with "A 101" imprinted on front / nothing on back), NOT DISSOLVING IN THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM? My mail-order pharmacy just changed so I'm getting this brand now and this is the problem I'm having. Previously I was taking the same med/dose but it was manufactured by Actavis (white, round, with "141" printed on front / nothing on back) and had absolutely no problems with it.

It is an absolute lie to say that generics perform as well as their name brand counterparts because they do not. The only thing the generic has to have in common with the brand is the active ingredient. The generic can have all kinds of fillers and colorings that can cause allergic reactions. The generic on delayed release medicines like Wellbutrin (bupropion) can dump all at once and cause many problems. I have taken three different generic bupropion and had adverse reactions with two. Even my doctors acknowledge that generics are not the same as brand. Although Benadryl is not a prescription medicine, I took a generic of this allergy medicine and had an allergic reaction to the dye that caused a rash on my legs and now I am left with ugly, red blotches all over my legs that will never go away and there is nothing my dermatologist can do to help me, such as lasering. Unfortunately for those of us on retirement and disability we cannot afford the name brands any more and with the health plan Obama has brought to the table we are going to be even worse off in that we may not get the meds we need at all. Some panel will decide what we can have. All my working life I avoided HMOs because I didn't want a non-medical person making my health decisions and now my own country is forcing one down my throat because I am old and on Medicare.

You'll note that I did reference the manufacturers of both the med I'm having a problem with and the one I took previously which was fine (for me).

I began taking the Cipla version of Bupropion HCL XL 300mg 4 days ago. Each day I've had a strong, clustered headache; the headache would be minute in the morning and then grow after taking the medication.

In addition, my vision has been a little blurry and I've felt off and fatigued. Nothing else in terms of medications, lifestyle, diet, etc. has changed these past 4 days. Given the timing, I can only assume it's due to the medication.

I've taken 3 generic brands of Wellbutrin XL 300mg in the past, each without issue. This is the first generic that has caused me problems. CVS is going to refill with their remaining supply of Achen (a white pill marked A 102), but I was told that the location would no longer be carrying it. When I inquired over the phone as to whether any locations in the area would continue offering a different generic, I was told I'd have to check each location in person.

If you are having similar side effects as I am, I encourage you to report the medication to the FDA and CVS. I've seen multiple other reports of the same side effects on this forum and elsewhere regarding Cipla's version.
