Please help me to understand exactly what drug I'm really taking. I was prescribed Wellbutrin, but was given Bupropion HCL. At the bottom of the bottle, it says substituted for Wellbutrin TBS B/W. When I look up Bupropion HCL I'm shown Zyban. Thank you for any help.

Hello, Mimi! How are you?

They are all the same. Wellbutrin and Zyban are both just brand names for Bupropion.

The FDA lists it as being an antidepressant that can also help with smoking cessation. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, insomnia and nervousness.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi, Sweetie, I'm doing okay, thanks. I appreciate your advice. Embarrassing question, will it cause very bad gas also?

You're very welcome!

And yes, it can do that in some people that take it.

If your doctor approves, you may find that something such as Gas-X will help.

It's typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may cause nausea and dizziness.
