What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?

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 sr 150 green vs purple tablet

I was receiving from Walgreens Bupropion 150mg SR which were green tablets imprinted M U12. Best medication I have ever been prescribed because it also acted as a stimulant therefore I no longer needed to sleep during the day. But after receiving the latest refiill I noticed I was again exhausted each day and needed to sleep. Later realized Walgreens gave me different tablets...a purple tablet imprinted S on one side and 525 on the other side. Walgreens said the purple tablet was exactly the same as the green tablet and it was FDA approved. What does FDA really mean? That the ingredients, the amount of each ingredient, and the quality of each ingredient is EXACTLY the same from one manufacturer to the next? Walgreens wouldn't return my money. Said the difference in refills was marke...

Has Anyone Tried The Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Sr Made By Sun Pharma Bupropion Hcl

Hi - I just got a perscription for the Sun Pharma generic version of Wellbutrin SR (Bupropion HCL SR). Has anyone had success with this one? If not which generic version have you had success with? ## Whatever generic worked for someone else may not work for you and vice versa. Learn more Wellbutrin SR details here. The only way to find out what works for you is to actually try it and see. If one generic doesn't work for you, then you can consult your pharmacist to see what else is available. Have you started them yet? Have you had any problems with them? ## CVS stopped carrying the Watson generic in March and supply only Sun Pharma brand of Bupropion, which is manufactured in India and distributed in the U.S. by CARACO Pharmaceutical Labs based in Detroit.

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis

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 ...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy

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...

Lexapro 10mg and Wellbutrin 150 together

has anyone taken lexapro 10mg and Wellbutrin together? I've been on lexapro for 6mon. Love it but doesn't seem to be working. Small case of anxiety and depression are coming back. Dr just put me on Wellbutrin. Afraid to take it because of the possible side effects. had none with lexapro. Just felt better within 4 days ## Hello, Melanie! How are you? Actually, it's advised that these two medications not be taken together. The Lexapro tends to increase the toxicity of the Wellbutrin, which could cause life threatening issues. Are you seeing a specialist or just a PCP? The typical side effects of Wellbutrin, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness and insomnia. ## You could be setting yourself up for a mild/medium case of Serotonin Sy...

Off the wellbutrin for 4 weeks - on my own, no anxiety, beautiful skin, weight loss, controllable eating and at last good sleep. I found this out on my own ## I took a ua and it came back positive for methamphetamine and I don't do any kind of drugs. can any of my meds cause this? I take wellbutrin bupropion 75mg and morph 30, nexium 40, gabapentin 400 ## The FDA lists this medication as containing the active ingredient Bupropion. Its side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and insomnia. Erinfaith, are you on any other medications? How long were you tak...

wellbutrin and drug tests

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. ## Can Wellbutrin show a false positive in hair follicle tests? I was told yes but also told no. ## I...

Wellbutrin Generic by Teva vs Watson vs Activis

I was taking 150 ml of Bupropion SR by Teva for several years and it has stopped working for my depression. Has anyone been happy with the other generic forms of Wellbutrin? I am now trying one from Activis but just started it yesterday. ## Your body will get used to the dosage of any medication that you take for a long period of time and it will eventually become less effective. Thus, it's really doubtful that switching manufacturers will help. It's most likely that you need a slight higher dosage to get the same benefits as you did before from this medication. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? You can read more Wellbutrin details here. ## Please let me know how the Actavis generic is working for you. I have been taking the Watson generic for 2 years and liked it. Just n...

Anyone take generic Wellbutrin made by Par?

Anyone take generic Wellbutrin made by Par pharmaceuticals? How is it working for you? ## I haven't taken this particular manufacturer's generic form of Wellbutrin (Bupropion), but thought I'd provide some additional information on it for those readers who may be trying to compare it with other brands/generics they may or may not have already tried. Bupropion XL made by Anchen Pharmaceuticals (of whom Par Pharmaceuticals purchased in 2011) are the small white round tablets imprinted in black ink with "A 101" or "A 102" for the 150mg/300mg doses, respectively. Each 150mg (A 101) pill reportedly contains the following set of inactive ingredients: alcohol + ethylcelluloses + hydrochloric acid + hydroxypropyl cellulose + povidone + silicon dioxide Each 300mg (A 1...

lexamil 10mg and alcohol

Hi! I am on lexamil 5 mg daily for a week before that wellbutrin 150 mg and 5 mg lexamil for 4 weeks before that wellbutrin 300 mg for 2 years. Weaning from the Wellbutrin because dr feels that it increases my anxiety, which is my main problem. Can these meds lead to alcohol blackouts? One minute fine to next minute waking up with memory loss. My memory is really bad on day to day basis. Also need to know will i pick up weight with lexamil? ## The memory loss can be side effects of these medications, but it could also be due to other issues. Alcohol may worsen side effects, such as nausea, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and diarrhea. According to FDA. Is there anything else I can help with? Are you on any other medications? ## Hi, Ive been taking Zytomil for 2 weeks met up with a frie...

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...

HOW DO YOU KNOW ITS WORKING ## It is not usually a tiny pill, they are usually a bit bigger and thicker than an Aspirin. Are there any markings on the tablets? Can you please post back and clarify? Sissy, overall it is an antidepressant that can also help reduce the cravings to smoke. Years ago, it was frequently sold under the brand name Zyban, specifically to help with smoking cessation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, dry mouth, nervousness, and weight loss.

Purple Wellbutrin 150 Mg Sr Generic By Zyben

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...

valeant wellbutrin xl 150 coupon

Valeant will no longer allow coupon usage in California. I use to get the brand Wellbutrin XL 150 for $5, but as of January 2018, AB265 passed. It prohibits pharmaceutical drug coupons in California with 5 exceptions to the bill. One exception in particular (C) The individual has completed any applicable step therapy or prior authorization requirements for the branded prescription drug, applies to my situation. But, Valeant is not willing to comply with the exception. I called the company on 3 separate occasions and they said they absolutely will not allow usage of their coupon in California. I even gave them the Assembly Bill 265 information regarding the exceptions, but they were not going to look in to it. In contrary, Pfizer, the maker of brand Zoloft, already had a plan for usage of t

Wellbutrin XL, Suboxone and Adderall

I started a suboxone program 6 weeks ago. My level dose is 8mg films/tid. I also take adderall ir 15mg/tid (that was prescribed by my psychiatrist, years ago). My sub dr. wants me to get off the adderall & I agree. So he’s started me on bupropion xl/150mg; which, I started today. Took it this morning, along with all my other meds. I was told the bupropion xl works similar to adderall? As far as increasing dopamine receptors, with a slight stimulant & eventually help the brain function without using such harmful & addictive medication. As I said, I started today & I feel like I’ve been given a sedative! I can't keep my eyes open! It’s doing the opposite! My questions: Has anyone taken this combo before? Does it work? I need to know why I'm so tir...

Bupropionxl, weight loss, libido

I started on bupropion xl 150 mg, taking it to help with my libido ( 50+ years old going through menopause) and weight loss. Libido was great and lost a few pounds first week then nothing. Dr increased to 300 mg... I have been taking for 4 weeks, no weight loss and no libido.... I know this med can take awhile to work... any thoughts, will it begin to work soon? Anyone experience same thing? ## That's rather odd, while the FDA does list it as not being known to decrease libido, it is also not known to increase it in most people that take it. It is also not usually used, by itself to aid in weight loss, it is usually accompanied with Naltrexone. The FDA warns that this combination, known as Contrave, may cause headache, nervousness, dizziness, and anorexia. Did your doctor try you on...
