Wellbutrin XL Overview

Bupropion, sold under the brand names Wellbutrin and Zyban among others, is a medication primarily used as an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid.[7] It is an effective antidepressant on its own, but is also used as an add-on medication in cases of incomplete response to first-line SSRI antidepressants.[7] Bupropion is taken in tablet form and is available only by prescription in most countries.[8] Common side effects include dry mouth, tro...

Zydus (Zygenerics) version of Wellbutrin 300 mg XL -

I had a huge problem with a generic before (TEVA) and have been paying a larger co-pay for brand.....I was wondering if anyone had any info on the Zydus version. Thank You ## I have been taking Zydus bupropion xl for about two weeks. I don't think it is as effective, and I feel 'zaps'--not sure how to explain that, sortof like twitches. I have felt horrible. ## According to the US National Library of Medicine, Zydus's generic Bupropion is actually manufactured by Cadila Healthcare Ltd., based out of Ahmedabad, India. Zydus simply acts as their distributor with a local headquarters in Pennington, NJ. Each tablet reportedly contains the following set of inactive ingredients: hypromelloses, magnesium stearate, methacrylic acid, polyethylene glycols , triethyl citrate, povid...

Generic Bupropion HCL XL

My Dr. took me off the Wellbruetin because it was making me sick. I have been taking the Generic kind. I just got a new refill, Generic Bupropion but they look just like the Wellbretins & my stomache pain has come back. I need help, What do the Generic Brpropion look like? ## I started taking the generic Wellbutrin 2xday, I had stomach aches, nausa, dizzy, mouth sores and funky taste in my mouth and profuse sweating. I had the non-generic before. After 3 wks, call pharm, he suggested LX once a day, which I was on last, but didn't relize it was now generic. Dr. send new perscription and within 1wk,all those horrible symptons were gone!! This is the generic XL and I am doing fine! ## The way they look can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so there is no way I could describe ...

Generic Wellbutrin XL and Zoloft

I have been tapering off Zoloft 100mg and switching to generic Wellbutrin XL 300mg. I gradually went off the Zoloft over a two week period and then started the Wellbutrin XL and I am having bad mood changes and I cry almost everyday. I have picking fights with my husband and being completly unreasonable. I took 15mg of Zoloft and it made me fell a little bit more normal. Has anyone had this experience with genaric Wellbutrin XL? Any advice would help!! ## It seems like lots of people experience these types of effects when changing from one antidepressant to another. I had a simular experence when changing from cymbalta to viibryd . I quit the viibryd and started to taper off cymbalta . I am going 2 start the wellbutrin in a week or so. ## I have experienced it and my doctor had to presc...

GENERIC WELLBUTRIN XL

I took one (1) week of the new generic drug (Budeprion XL) and went to my doctor's appointment. She told me that the Wellbutrin XL now has a generic pill but I was not to take the generic. I told her I had just refilled my prescription and received the generic brand, so she wrote a new prescription for Brand Only. I don't know what the difference is, but thought it might be useful information for someone out there. ## I know this was submitted years ago, but still today, in 2011, I can not take the generic Wellbutrin. I have tried here and there over 6 years to take the generic and it is like I am not taking anything. My insurance pays almost nothing toward the brand and I pay $280 a month out of pocket, but this medication works so well for me, that it is worth it. I have howev...

Pill 142 300 mg actavis

I was just switched from taking 2 150 mg to 1 300mg (pill 142 ) I know lots of complaints about generics - anyone take the 142 300mg pill ? How did you feel ?? Thanks ;) ## I have been on the Actavis brand ONLY (since I've had trouble with many other generic manufacturers) for about a year and it has worked beautifully - I've never felt better ... until I got a new bottle a month ago and started having depression symptoms again. I came to this board to see if anyone else is experiencing this. There are no real situational/life factors to pin this on. My psych thinks it's s***ty generic manufacturing, so we're going to try PAR, which I tried before and didn't like, but we'll see. How has your experience been? ## Hi Erin - I have been taking the 300mg Actavis brand...

LATE PERIOD WHILE TAKING Wellbutrin

I don't care what the research states: Wellbutrin causes your period to be late. I'm usually on time with my period, been taking the medicine 2 x a day (300mg) for 6 weeks now, still no period. I took 2 pregnancy test both negative. Several women on blogs are experiencing this same problem. I'll post again after I get my period, so you can have a timeline. I hope this helps. ## Hello, BryantsGrl! How are you? Menstrual irregularities are listed in the detailed side effect information and many of the antidepressants tend to lengthen the menstrual cycle in women. Your period may also be slightly heavier and last a little longer than normal. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## But what about having NO period. Mine is not lengthened... I am 8 days late! ## This is so t...

Wellbutrin xl dosage increase

I started taking 150 mg of Wellbutrin xl for anxiety. My first two days were tough with increased symptoms, which the pharmacist had already warned me of. The horrible side effects got less and less as the days progressed. By day 8 I was feeling great, anxiety was still lingering, not as bad. On day 13, I started the 300 mg, that was 7 days ago. I take it every morning at 8am. I am feeling good in the morning and every day around 1pm I start feeling horrible. Suddenly I am feeling drugged, dizzy, nauseous and disoriented. I continued to take it hoping these side effects would taper off like they did with the 150 mg, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I am still feeling as horrible now as I did when I first started the dosage increase. Do I just need to give it some more t...

Bupropion and decreased alcohol consumption

I've recently started bupropion, it's been a few weeks. I think I experienced every single side effect the drug had over the first few days but all is good now. I'm not depressed, nor do I have anxiety. I was actually hoping that maybe it'd make me happier but it hasn't done a single thing to my mood or drive; positive or by negative. I started taking it to quit smoking and I really enjoy it more than chantex as the drug makes me make the decision to stop smoking. It's decreased my cravings and side effects of quitting. I've noticed also that I have a dramatically reduced urge to drink. Even if I begin drinking I don't over do it, but typically I just have no interest in drinking. I find this amazing because, not that I'd admit it publicly, but I thin...

Side effects to wellbutrin

So I have been on Lexapro 10mg for a few years and I didnt feel as if it was helping me at all. Plus I was always tired and gaining weight. My doctor suggested switching to wellbutrin. He told me to take a 150mg wellbutrin and lower my Lexapro dose to 5mg for 2 weeks, then to take 300mg wellbutrin and stop Lexapro. I am almost at the 2 week make and I feel like I have so many side effects and I don't know if it's withdrawal or the new meds, or a combo of both, or maybe I am getting sick? I have headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, lightheaded, out of it, dry mouth, stomach pain, gas, jittery, and heart palpitations at times. I'm afraid to start the 300mg and stop the Lexapro in a few days. Do these sound like symptoms of the withdrawal and starting up those drugs? Its not go...

Wellbutrin XL 300mg and Hairloss

I've been taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg since the middle of March and for the last month or so I've noticed I'm losing a lot of hair and my hair has thinned out a lot. It's getting to the point that I'm scared of brushing it. Does anyone know if this will get better or will I have to quit the medication? I really like how well Wellbutrin works but I don't want to be bald! ## Hello, Cheyenne! How are you? Yes, as reported by the U.S. FDA, this medication has been known to cause hair loss, in some people that take it, you may also experience dizziness, headache and mood swings. However yes, it should go away, once you stop taking the medication. But, rather than stopping abruptly, you should consult your doctor about tapering it, or switching to a different medication...
