Bupropion

Category: Antidepressant



Bupropion Overview

Bupropion, sold under the brand names Wellbutrin and Zyban among others, is a medication primarily used to treat major depressive disorder and to support smoking cessation.[8] It is an effective antidepressant on its own, but it is also used as an add-on medication in cases of incomplete response to first-line SSRI antidepressants.[8][9] Bupropion is taken in tablet form and is available only by prescription in industrialized countries.[...

best generic bupropion 75mg sandoz or apotex

Mhich one is better? My son use to take bupropion Hcl 75mg from Sandoz Pharm. but when we bought our house and moved we swapped Pharmacies. They carry bupropion Hcl 75mg from Apotex Corp. I've noticed that he isn't able to focus as much, he impulse reacts more, and he takes longer to go to sleep, along with other small differences. Can this be because the bupropion from Apotex Corp. doesn't work as well for him as from Sandoz Pharm. I'm almost sure if it to be honest. Should I transfer and fill it elsewhere? ## Most defintely transfer script. Ive been taking Sandoz bupropion and love it. Had it filled the other day, they gave me Mylan brand and it did nothing for me except make my bp go up. Imo Sandoz is holy grail for wellbutrin generic. Hope he gets to feeling better!!...

Bupropion helped me quit smoking

I started taking Bupropion a week ago and I quit smoking after 9 years. This works! ## Congrats James, great to hear a success story! Did you find the process pretty easy to follow, and do you have to taper down your dose at all before stopping completely? Also, what's your plan to permanently stay off the cigarettes once you are off the medication? Wishing you the best with this! ## Thank you Roy!!! Still on the medication but almost finished have no urge to smoke. Once finished will reply and let you know how it goes. I feel if I stopped taking this now I would not have an urge to smoke. Urge feels like it is gone. :) Will keep you updated my friend. ## That's great, hopefully the urge will not return once you stop taking the bupropion. But maybe have some ideas lined up for h...

Bupropion XL 300 by Lupin (L016)

Has anyone tried Bupropion XL 300 by Lupin - a round pill marked L016? Just received these from Walgreen's internet pharmacy and I'm very concerned. I started taking this medication about two years ago, the PAR generic, and everything was great. Then, CVS changed to Cipla and things got bad -- it was only thanks to Medschat that I figured out the problem was caused by the new manufacturer. So, I switched to Walgreens, which had Actavis. It was so much better for me than Cipla but not quite as good as PAR. Quite by accident, I found that when ordering from Walgreen's internet pharmacy I got the med manufactured by PAR. All's been good for many months... until I just opened my newest prescription and found it's by a newly approved generic by Lupin. Hopefully it will be...

Sandoz Bupropion SR 150 Mg - Same Medication, Different Manufacturer

Has anyone had a problem when having to switch their medication to another manufacturer? For the past 4 months I have SUCCESSFULLY been taking Bupropion SR 150 Mg manufactured by Mylan, sold by CVS (it is a light green round pill).....Unfortunately, my insurance recently forced me to go through Medco mail order and I received dark purple round pills manufactured by SANDOZ. Since taking these purple pills I have become sick daily. I have been experienced nausea, not seeing clearly (double vision or something weird like that), vertigo, motionsickness, extreme temperature fluctuations, not being able to concentrate, etc, etc, etc..... So I immediately switched back to purchasing this medication from CVS (Mylan) and my nasty symptoms disipated quickly and I am back to "me" again! My...

what does GE on a prescription mean

I have been taking Burpropion HCL SR 150mg for about 4 months now and I recently got my refill for the next three months. However, instead of saying "Bupropion HCL SR 150MG Tablet" It now says "G.E. Bupropion HCL SR 150MG Tablet". My pills also used to be white with a distinct chemical smell, but these new pills are purple and have a fruity smell. I just want to make sure it isn't a change in composition as I have been taking these routinely for my major depressive disorder and have seen great progress and don't want to have a regression. Thanks for any info! ## Are there any markings on them? When initials, or an abbreviation is listed, before a drug name, it usually stands for the manufacturer. Bupropion may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mo...

it is ayellow color oblong and it is made by teva i am looking for the ingredients active and non active ## My bupropion 300mg XL is white oblong with M B9 by mylan. Is substituted for Wellbutrin XL 300 mg tablets. Have yet to see a pic of the one I am taking.

NDC: 00378-2009 Do you have some reason to doubt that you've really received Bupropion? To the original poster, what are the markings on the tablet in question? This information would help with being able to answer your question. However, as to the active ingredient, that is Bupropion.

Bupropion XL by Mylan Pharmaceuticals

Hi everyone. I'm a 39 year old male and on Day 6 of 150mg Bupropion XL. I am wondering how long it takes Mylan Bupropion XL to start working? Also how long does it take to get the increased libido effects that everyone mentions? Currently a little down and even with Viagra, I have a hard time. ## It may take about 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. As to the side effects, according to the U.S. FDA, it doesn't increase your response/libido, it is that it usually doesn't cause the same loss of libido as other similar medications. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of seizures. Are you on any other medications? ## What pharmacy dispenses bupropion 150 mg that is manufactured by Mylan? Any help would ...

Bupropion 150 XL by Dr. Reddy's/ScieGen Pharmaceuticals

Do they work as well as PAR brand? Any other comments on this brand of Bupropion? ## Do not work as well. And couldn't return them. CVS still uses PAR and CVS policy is to inform before providing different brand. ## PAR Bupropion works better for me, (used 2 years). Get it in CVS by request only. I tried CIPLA for about 4 months, don’t like it at all. Back to PAR.

Bupropion XL by Cipla Pharmaceuticals

My pharmacy has been giving me refills of the generic bupropion for my last two refills that are manufactured by CIPLA. The pill is oblong and has the number 13 on one side and what appears to be a capital I on the other side. I do not feel that this generic is doing much for me. I have researched this manufacture they are located in India. Approximately 45% of the medications that are sold in the United States are manufactured in foreign countries. I am going to call my pharmacy to see if they can get one of the generics that were previously dispensed to me. The buyers for drugs at pharmacies look to find lower priced drugs, which I understand. I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150 mg three tablets daily for about eight years including the generic form. This medication helped my severe ...
