What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
1423 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 drug tests
2 Replies RSS
I took a drug test for employment and failed... The drug test came out positive for methamphetamine. I said what, I don't do drugs - I only take wellbutrin for depression everyday. This was very embarrassing. I got a note from my dr to help my case but someone needs to do something about this medicine. Goodness, how many good ppl have failed because of this medicine? ## I took one wellbutrin xl 150 mg. Will it be out of my system in 6 days when I have a 10 panel urine test? ## Will Wellbutrin make me fail a saliva drug test? Looking for a direct honest answer because I have been on Wellbutrin for a lil while and now my job wants me to take a saliva drug test. I need to know asap.

Wellbutrin XL

anti anxiety ## I am trying to figure out how to get off of the Wellbutrin xl 15o mg. i take 1 per day in the morning. It is making me throw up. I am going to start splitting it in half for a week. Then I am going to stop it all together the next week. ## I am not an expert by any means, but if XL stands for "extended release" you are not supposed to cut the pills because it changes the way the drug is released.... like you get it much faster.... ## That is correct, you should not cut, break, or crush a time released tablet, such as this, since it could cause you to get too much of the medication, at once, which may result in overdose, according to FDA warnings. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and irritability. Ov...

Tablets - Nuzak

Hi I am on Nuzak and feel I have no energy I stay tired. I am on Nuzak about 8months. I also have gained weight and eat less but still pick up weight. I was on wellbutrin before but went off and my Dr recommended me to go back on Nuzak. I struggle to get through the day and feel sleepy mostly. I also have no libido. Weekends I just want to rest to be able to cope for the week that lies ahead. I feel very exhausted and hate feeling this way. What would you suggest? ## Hi Chantel, This reply may be very outdated but may still help someone else. I have been on Nuzak for almost 3 weeks now and for the first 2 and half weeks felt the same, very very tired all the time no matter how much I slept. I spoke to my doctor and pharmacist at first thinking it was a side effect, but after some invest...

Welbutrin XL and gait, balance and falling
2 Replies RSS
I am on a lot of meds for depression/anxiety. My p-doc started me on Wellbutrin, but all of a sudden, I couldn't walk straight, veered into walls, etc. and fell often. I'm in my upper 70s. My husband insisted this effect started with the Wellbutrin, and convinced my doctor that I have to taper off. Low and behold, about 2 days after stopping, the symptoms disappeared. Has anyone else experienced such a side effect from anything? ## I guess what I'm trying to find out is if anyone has experienced unsteady gait when walking while taking wellbutrin? By unsteady, I mean swerving into walls, balance issues and falling down with no warning, and crashing into furniture. I suffered from these symptoms until I came off the wellbutrin. ## I am very sorry about what you've had to d...

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis
14 Replies RSS
I've been taking the generic brand PAR of Buproion LX 300MG for over 2 years and haven't run into any problems. Walgreens switched the brand to Actavis generic this month and I feel extremely depressed. I plan on seeking medical attention from my doctor right away-- but I'd like to hear about your experiences to not feel so alone. I started taking Actavis around January 15th and I've noticed my mood has completely shifted and no longer feel like myself. PAR seemed to work well for me. Before I switched brands my depression was manageable but now it's out of control. I constantly feel angry, annoyed, and highly irritated and it scares me. Can generic brands of the same exact medication cause your mental health to decline? ## Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your reaction ...

Can Wellbutrin SR be taken once a day?
2 Replies RSS
Recently I started taking Wellbutrin SR (generic). I'm prescribed 100 mg twice daily. However, I've been taking been taking all 200 mg once a day in the morning. Ultimately, is the SR version still effective if only taken once a day? Why do people usually take it twice a day? Will I experience any disadvantages by taking it all at once? Today is my 8th day on Wellbutrin. I definitely feel SOME improvement. ## It is usually best to take it twice daily, as directed, due to the fact that its efficacy depends on it being maintained at a certain level in your body. Taking them both, at once, does not provide you a full 24 hours of medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help w...

Wellbutrin Stopped Working- Please help!
10 Replies RSS
Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am desperate for support and hoping I can get some advice from people who may have had a similar experience. I feel like I'm drowning- like the life has been sucked out of me. I've felt depressed ever since I was 12 years old. I wasn't suicidal, but I felt a general lack of motivation for life. I couldn't find happiness in anything, and just getting out of bed was a struggle most days. At age 21 I decided to do something about it and got a script for the generic version of Wellbutrin XL (300mg) for roughly 2 years. In the beginning it was a miracle drug- I was able to get out of bed in the morning, I was super motivated, lost some weight, and felt like a normal human being- until at some point it stopped working, so I tapered off and even...

New to Wellbutrin SR
2 Replies RSS
Okay, I am hoping to get some help. I was on Pristiq 100 mg for the last three years. My insurance now is having a higher co-pay plus I have gained 25 lbs. So the PA switched my to Wellbutrin SR 150mg. It is day three and I feel awful. Very foggy and light headed. Well I found out from her nurse today, that I should not be having any caffeine when I take it. How long will this feeling last?? Anyone have words of wisdom. I am not hungry and that is the good thing. I want to try to stick it out. ## Hi Mojo, Everyone's body handles medication differently so there is no way to know when the side effects will go away for sure.If they haven't gone away in a couple weeks, you might want to speak with your doctor. Feeling light headed obviously isn't normal and may be a sign that yo...

Will wellbutrin show up positive for methadone? ## I tested positive while in the hospital for Methadone. I didn't know what the drug was let alone never taking it. I have done my research and I was taking Wellbutrin at the time. They labeled me as an addict. ## Will wellbutrin cause a false positive in a hair follicle test? I've been taking wellbutrin for 5 months and did a hair test that goes back 90 days. Will it show up as methadone?

wellbutrin SEMI-TRUCK driving
1 Reply RSS
I got 2 drug tests, one to get into collage for semi-truck driving and one hair drug test for when I start driving semi trucks. Will wellbutrin XL 150mg show up on the drug test? ## This is a medication that is used to treat depression, anxiety, and to aid in smoking cessation, so it is not something that is normally included in standard drug tests. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Wellbutrin testing positive for methamphetamine
4 Replies RSS
I just got out of jail and did not use, but was dirty for methamphetamine. I do take Wellbutrin. How does this happen? ## I don't know but it sure does. And causes a lot of undue stress. I'm stopping the Wellbutrin. Screw that. ## I keep testing positive for methamphetamine and do not use and am not around any drugs. I was on the drug patch and it kept showing up in really low levels like negative, then 220, then negative, then 50. I am at a loss of words. Now I switched to U/A's. I am scared s***less because I am being accused of using and I am not and now cps is threatening to take my child from me. I am prescribed wellbutrin but I rarely take it. The time I failed the only thing I can think that I did different is take the wellbutrin. Can this make me fail? If not what ca...

TBX free drug interactions
3 Replies RSS
I take Wellbutrin and amphetamine. Is this ok with TBX free? Is there any reason I can't take these medications together? ## Has anyone used TBX Free while taking antidepressants? If so did you have problems? I'm worried about complications. ## I was unfortunately unable to locate any specific reference of a drug interaction between TBX and other medications, I think, primarily because its active ingredient (Cytisine) is a plant derived alkaloid that's non-existent in standard Western medical literature. That said, if it were me I'd probably try to get in touch with the prescribing doctor as well as a naturopathic doctor just to cover all bases. Please post back with any updates on how things work out. ## I ordered some TBX free online to stop smoking. When I received it...

what is the best generic brand of wellbutrin
35 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 program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
41 Replies RSS
I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...

Purple Wellbutrin 150 Mg Sr Generic By Zyben
13 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...
