Bupropion Overview

Bupropion is a medication primarily used as an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid.[7][8][9] It is marketed as Wellbutrin and Zyban among other trade names. It is one of the most frequently prescribed antidepressants in the United States and Canada,[10] although in many countries this is an off-label use.[11] It is an effective antidepressant on its own, but is also popular as an add-on medication in cases of incomplete response to first-line SSRI antidepressants.[12] Bupropion is taken ...

Bupropion XL 300 by Lupin (L016)
6 Replies RSS
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...

Bupropion XL by Cipla Pharmaceuticals
30 Replies RSS
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 ...

I'm afraid to start taking Bupropion with Tramadol
29 Replies RSS
I was just prescribe Bupropion 150mg 2x daily. I also take Tramadol which was prescribed by the same Dr. I'm afraid to start the Bupropion because of the drug interaction btwn the two. Should I be worried? Can I cut the tablets in half & take 75mg 2x daily? ## Hi Donna, After looking over the interaction between these two medications, I can certainly see why you might be scared to take them together. The interaction I found states the following: "MONITOR CLOSELY: The risk of seizures may be increased during coadministration of tramadol with any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, neuroleptic agents, central nervous system stimulants, opioids, tricy...

generic bupropion manufacturers-immediate release
3 Replies RSS
looking for bupropion that is an immediate release pill prefferally white ## From what I've seen, there aren't any generic bupropion tablets that are both white and immediate-release. There are however, other brands of bupropion, such as Aplenzin, which are not extended-release and happen to be white as well. These particular pills are manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA and Sandoz Pharma also make generic, immediate-release bupropion, but the pills are yellow, pink, and purple, as opposed to white. Are there any specific reasons why you prefer a white tablet? ## chemicaly sensitive to atifical colors, but these colors can be wash off slowly without destroying the integrety of pill (looking for white IR Bupropion ## I was taking bupropion xl 150 three a day ...

White Oblong pill with I on one side and 13 on the other
13 Replies RSS
I picked up my prescription for bupropion HCL XL and noticed the shape and imprint is different than it's ever been. It is an oblong tablet with "I" on one side and 13 on the other. There are no score lines. I'm unable to find it through any search and want to make sure it's the correct medication. Any help is appreciated. ## It's just a change in Manufacturer. I noticed the difference too today when picking up my prescription. If you go to Cipla USA's website, they have the image and description of the updated pill. Before this one, I had the round pill with A 101 printed on it, but that was manufactured by a different company. ## I have been trying to find this same pill I picked up at my pharmacy days ago. My bupropion xl never looked like this. Thank you ...

Trihexyphen generic and sexual side effects

What are the side effects of the medicines Trihexyphen and Bupropion? Please post. ## Hello, Tom! How are you? The FDA lists the typical side effects of Trihexyphenidyl as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, constipation, dry mouth and headache. However, I do not see any intimate side effects listed. They list the typical side effects for Bupropion as possibly including nausea, dizziness, nervousness, insomnia, decreased appetite and sore throat. It has been known to affect libido and intimate function, but much less than other antidepressants. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does it mess with your sex life and wat happens if u take other street drugs

Change Bupropion dosage, weight, libido
2 Replies RSS
I have been on and off (mostly on) bupropion for about ten years. At first I loved it, great libido and weight loss. After I stopped taking it the first time I gained a ton of weight and depression returned. I got back on it but it wasn't nearly as effective as before. Over the years I've tried others that were better for my depression but I stopped taking them because of the weight gain. I always went back to the bupropion even though it no longer helped with my weight. I've been on 300 XL for about a year now. I'm not depressed but I still have no interest in things, no energy, NO libido whatsoever, and weight gain. I've been wondering lately if I should tapper back my dose or switch to SR to see if I have better luck. Any suggestions or similar experiences? ## Wha...

CIPLA Bupropion HCL XL meeting Wellbutrin XL bioequivalence?
1 Reply RSS
CIPLA got approval from the FDA to produce their generic version of Wellbutrin XL on August 30, 2016. I have made an inquiry to CIPLA as to whether their approval also means that they met the bioequivalence testing that other generic manufacturers had to comply with after Teva/Impax was pulled off the market in Sept. 2012 -- and Actavis (now owned by Watson) was removed Oct. 2013. [Second Generic Version of Popular Antidepressant to be Pulled from Market for Bioequivalency Issues]. Not sure if they have this problem corrected. Anyone know about Cipla or Watson/Actavis? ## For anyone else who may be wanting to contact Cipla USA regarding this concern, you can reach their customer service department by phone at: 844-CIPLA US (844-247-5287) or via email at: ciplacs@ups.com Furthermore, it...

Bupropion XL by Mylan Pharmaceuticals
1 Reply RSS
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?
