Wellbutrin 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 ...

81 Replies RSS Share
Hi - I just got a perscription for the Sun Pharma generic version of Wellbutrin SR (Bupropion HCL SR). Has anyone had success with this one? If not which generic version have you had success with? ## Whatever generic worked for someone else may not work for you and vice versa. Learn more Wellbutrin SR details here.

valeant wellbutrin xl 150 coupon
Post a Reply Share
Valeant will no longer allow coupon usage in California. I use to get the brand Wellbutrin XL 150 for $5, but as of January 2018, AB265 passed. It prohibits pharmaceutical drug coupons in California with 5 exceptions to the bill. One exception in particular (C) The individual has completed any applicable step therapy or prior authorization requirements for the branded prescription drug, applies to my situation. But, Valeant is not willing to comply with the exception. I called the company on 3 separate occasions and they said they absolutely will not allow usage of their coupon in California. I even gave them the Assembly Bill 265 information regarding the exceptions, but they were not going to look in to it. In contrary, Pfizer, the maker of brand Zoloft, already had a plan for usage of t

Wellbutrin XL, Suboxone and Adderall
9 Replies RSS Share
I started a suboxone program 6 weeks ago. My level dose is 8mg films/tid. I also take adderall ir 15mg/tid (that was prescribed by my psychiatrist, years ago). My sub dr. wants me to get off the adderall & I agree. So he’s started me on bupropion xl/150mg; which, I started today. Took it this morning, along with all my other meds. I was told the bupropion xl works similar to adderall? As far as increasing dopamine receptors, with a slight stimulant & eventually help the brain function without using such harmful & addictive medication. As I said, I started today & I feel like I’ve been given a sedative! I can't keep my eyes open! It’s doing the opposite! My questions: Has anyone taken this combo before? Does it work? I need to know why I'm so tir...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
47 Replies RSS Share
I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
1437 Replies RSS Share
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Bupropionxl, weight loss, libido
1 Reply RSS Share
I started on bupropion xl 150 mg, taking it to help with my libido ( 50+ years old going through menopause) and weight loss. Libido was great and lost a few pounds first week then nothing. Dr increased to 300 mg... I have been taking for 4 weeks, no weight loss and no libido.... I know this med can take awhile to work... any thoughts, will it begin to work soon? Anyone experience same thing? ## That's rather odd, while the FDA does list it as not being known to decrease libido, it is also not known to increase it in most people that take it. It is also not usually used, by itself to aid in weight loss, it is usually accompanied with Naltrexone. The FDA warns that this combination, known as Contrave, may cause headache, nervousness, dizziness, and anorexia. Did your doctor try you on...

Wellbutrin XL - not losing weight anymore?
4 Replies RSS Share
I'm a 26 year old female taking 450mg once daily. I've been on Wellbutrin for proabably about a year and a half and it helps so much with depression and it helped me lose weight! The pounds were dropping! I also was doing weight watchers but even when I ate horrible I would lose or not gain, at all! Now.... it's not helping me with weight loss? My depression is at bay but it's not helping me keep weight off anymore... has anyone else have this happen? Idk what to do... advice please. ## Wellbutrin by itself is generally weight neutral and doesn't cause weight gain, or weight loss. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Has anything else changed, such as your diet, or activity levels? Are you on any ...

lexamil 10mg and alcohol
1 Reply RSS Share
Hi! I am on lexamil 5 mg daily for a week before that wellbutrin 150 mg and 5 mg lexamil for 4 weeks before that wellbutrin 300 mg for 2 years. Weaning from the Wellbutrin because dr feels that it increases my anxiety, which is my main problem. Can these meds lead to alcohol blackouts? One minute fine to next minute waking up with memory loss. My memory is really bad on day to day basis. Also need to know will i pick up weight with lexamil? ## The memory loss can be side effects of these medications, but it could also be due to other issues. Alcohol may worsen side effects, such as nausea, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and diarrhea. According to FDA. Is there anything else I can help with? Are you on any other medications?

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis
16 Replies RSS Share
I've been taking the generic brand PAR of Buproion LX 300MG for over 2 years and haven't run into any problems. Walgreens switched the brand to Actavis generic this month and I feel extremely depressed. I plan on seeking medical attention from my doctor right away-- but I'd like to hear about your experiences to not feel so alone. I started taking Actavis around January 15th and I've noticed my mood has completely shifted and no longer feel like myself. PAR seemed to work well for me. Before I switched brands my depression was manageable but now it's out of control. I constantly feel angry, annoyed, and highly irritated and it scares me. Can generic brands of the same exact medication cause your mental health to decline? ## Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your reaction ...
