150 mg Wellbutrin sustained release

Since my pharmacy switched to Solco as the supplier of my Wellbutrin I have had all the symptoms, for which I was taking Wellbutrin, return. Has anyone else experienced this problem? ## Hello, Deb0724! How are you? As set forth in the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in the amount of active ingredients in generic medications, they are allowed to differ from the name brands by as much as plus or minus 20% and they only have to measure against the name brand, not other generics. Thus, it is highly possible that one may have a little more of the active ingredient, while a different one may be slightly lower. Can anyone else that's taken the one from Solco chime in with their experience? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including n...

Where is Solco Avapro made

I have been taking brand name Avapro for years, but now that it has gone generic Theexpense has become astronomical. Thinking about going generic ...however worried about side effects. Any generic version I should be aware of? I am so leary of generics and the fillers and overseas manufacturers. ## Hi Henrietta, Based on my research Avapro made by Solco healthcare U.S. is based out of Cranbury, New Jersey. It appears that this is where their headquarters is located according to the company's webpage. You are right though about generics being a little iffy when it comes to the fillers and side effects. However there's really no way to know for sure how any generic/brand is going to effect you until you try it. If you're used to taking the brand name, it would probably be easi...

Teva Pills Identify Ibertasan

I need to find out if pharmacy gave me correct strength 300 mg of Ibertasan, pill only marked Teva. Half the weight of original pill of Avapro. ## Hi Helga, Have you already tried calling the pharmacy that filled your prescription? That is probably the quickest way to determine if they messed up on your script. Since the only imprint is "Teva", I can't narrow down my search on this specific pill; being that there are multiple pills that have a Teva marking. I would however suggest contacting the manufacturer directly (via the link below), if you are unable to get a-hold of the pharmacy that filled your prescription: tevausa.com/default.aspx?pageid=3469 I hope this advice helps!

My husband has lost 70 lbs or more when he was on these two pills. He has been spleeing alot and now has a fine electric line across his eye. Why does he need TWO High Blood Pressure pills. His urnie output if lower. He has NO liver or Kidney problems or Heart. He was just told by his doctor that he doesn't have to Test his Blood Sugar anymore. He stopped taking any sugar or deserts for over two years now!! A NEW thing is that his Hands and Fingers get very,very cold now. Why is that? ## How high were his blood pressure readings? If someone has hypertension and it was very high, it is normal to give them more than one medication, to try to bring it down as fast as possible. The Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic, it is meant to help remove excess fluid from the body. However, if he h...

PILL OBLONG SHAPE WHITE HEART IMPRINT OTHER SIDE #2773

ANXIETY ## This is not used for anxiety. It is Avapro 300mg. It is a medication used for high blood pressure and to help expel any extra water in the body. Side effects include inability to pass urine, heart palpitations, dizziness. ## Yep, nenene is correct, the generic/drug name for this is Irbesartan, and it is most definitely an Angiotensin II Receptor Agonist, which really has no other uses other than to lower blood pressure. I even looked up several monographs on it, at various sites, and anti-hypertensive is the only use that is indicated and approved by the FDA and stated by the manufacturers. I supposed it is possible the person thought, by the looks of it, that is was some form of antianxiety med or a Benzo. Many people do assume that all meds that are related or the same look...

Have been very drowsy

Since I began taking 2 x 150 mg pills of Avapro a day I have been sleeping more. Anyone else with this? ## Occasionally I suddenly get INTENSELY sleepy (not physically tired). Am also taking Lopressor and Zocor. ## What medical condition does Avapro treat? My husband's doctor prescribed this without explaining what it does. ## Physicians should tell their patients what they are perscribing their drugs for. I get it for high blood pressure. ## Yes, I told my doctor after this, my first month on Avapro that I felt tired or maybe SLeepy alot is a better description, we'll see if this is only for a limited adjustment period.
