I have been taking bupropuin 150 mg 2 times daily made by actavis for over 6 months and doing very well with it last week I was given the same medication but it was a different color and made b sandoz .I have been taking it for 8 days two days ago I had a panic attack then for the past 2 days I have had tightness in my chest. Felt a bit dizzy yesterday and have been feeling extremely overwhelmed and even crying, I'm not sure if it could have something to do with the medication. Please help

There can be some fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, they are usually slight and considered to be therapeutically insignificant, but there are some cases where someone can be sensitive to any fluctuation and they may experience problems.

It has only been a few days, so you may want to give it a little more time to see if you start to adjust and feel better. If not, then you may need to contact your doctor to explore possibly solutions.

How are you feeling today?

I have had the same problem with numerous medications when filled from a different manufacturer. You are most likely having trouble with one of the inactive ingredients in the Sandoz version. You can look up the inactive ingredients in these different products at this website and compare them with the one you didn't have trouble with: dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?id=3334 (this is an example for doxycycline). Just Google "inactive ingredients for (drug name)" and this site will come up somewhere in the list.

I resorted to having some prescriptions prepared at a compounding pharmacy to avoid this issue. It is somewhat more expensive and your doctor has to approve it on the prescription, but it can be worth it to avoid these reactions.

Hi there. I have experienced different and unpleasant side effects with generic forms of Wellbutrin SR 200mg. The two generic forms I can take are Watson and Actavis. Ask the pharmacy if they can order the generic brand for you. I did this with Walgreens. They take care of me every time. :)
