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 ...

Wellbutrin Stopped Working- Please help!
11 Replies RSS
Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am desperate for support and hoping I can get some advice from people who may have had a similar experience. I feel like I'm drowning- like the life has been sucked out of me. I've felt depressed ever since I was 12 years old. I wasn't suicidal, but I felt a general lack of motivation for life. I couldn't find happiness in anything, and just getting out of bed was a struggle most days. At age 21 I decided to do something about it and got a script for the generic version of Wellbutrin XL (300mg) for roughly 2 years. In the beginning it was a miracle drug- I was able to get out of bed in the morning, I was super motivated, lost some weight, and felt like a normal human being- until at some point it stopped working, so I tapered off and even...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
1429 Replies RSS
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...

White oblong pill 5/8 of inch long. 142 imprinted on one side only ## I went to 2 pharmacies and the first had no Idea either. My pharmacy says it is Buprpion XL 300 mg, a generic for Wellbutrin XL 300 mg. The reason I started this witch hunt was , the generic doesn't work nearly as well as the Welbutrin I would still like to have a verification if possible. ## I went to 2 pharmacies and the first had no Idea either.

Wellbutrin and Opiates
1 Reply RSS
I have been on percocet and percocet er. My doctor put me on wellbutrin for depression. Do these mix well together? Could some of the depression come from being on opiates for so long? ## Yes, opiates actually work as a depressant, according to NIH reports. Other side effects may including dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. However, there is no Percocet ER. What exactly where you taking? Was it Oxycontin? Can you please post back and clarify?

wellbutrin / oxycontin / oxycodone
4 Replies RSS
I am suppose to take 150 mg of Wellbutrin twice a day. I was also prescribed OxyContin 10 mg every 4-6 hours, along with OxyCodone 10mg every 4-6 hours (as needed). So, here is my problem. (Y, the Doctors do know that I am on all 3 of these meds together). I don't know how long I need to wait after taking a Wellbutrin before I can take an Oxy w/o running the risk of Seratonin Syndrome(?). Oxy doesn't make me loopy at all. It hypes me up like Adderall, and that's before I add a Wellbutrin. Can anyone help or advise. My Doctors just say a couple of hours. But, so far, 2 hours isn't working. I need something more precise. How soon can you take an OxyContin after taking an Anti-Depressant??? ## Hello, Alex! How are you? I'm not finding anything about a risk of serotonin ...

Wellbutrin XL
3 Replies RSS
anti anxiety ## I am trying to figure out how to get off of the Wellbutrin xl 15o mg. i take 1 per day in the morning. It is making me throw up. I am going to start splitting it in half for a week. Then I am going to stop it all together the next week. ## I am not an expert by any means, but if XL stands for "extended release" you are not supposed to cut the pills because it changes the way the drug is released.... like you get it much faster.... ## That is correct, you should not cut, break, or crush a time released tablet, such as this, since it could cause you to get too much of the medication, at once, which may result in overdose, according to FDA warnings. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and irritability. Ov...

Tablets - Nuzak
2 Replies RSS
Hi I am on Nuzak and feel I have no energy I stay tired. I am on Nuzak about 8months. I also have gained weight and eat less but still pick up weight. I was on wellbutrin before but went off and my Dr recommended me to go back on Nuzak. I struggle to get through the day and feel sleepy mostly. I also have no libido. Weekends I just want to rest to be able to cope for the week that lies ahead. I feel very exhausted and hate feeling this way. What would you suggest? ## Hi Chantel, This reply may be very outdated but may still help someone else. I have been on Nuzak for almost 3 weeks now and for the first 2 and half weeks felt the same, very very tired all the time no matter how much I slept. I spoke to my doctor and pharmacist at first thinking it was a side effect, but after some invest...

Welbutrin XL and gait, balance and falling
2 Replies RSS
I am on a lot of meds for depression/anxiety. My p-doc started me on Wellbutrin, but all of a sudden, I couldn't walk straight, veered into walls, etc. and fell often. I'm in my upper 70s. My husband insisted this effect started with the Wellbutrin, and convinced my doctor that I have to taper off. Low and behold, about 2 days after stopping, the symptoms disappeared. Has anyone else experienced such a side effect from anything? ## I guess what I'm trying to find out is if anyone has experienced unsteady gait when walking while taking wellbutrin? By unsteady, I mean swerving into walls, balance issues and falling down with no warning, and crashing into furniture. I suffered from these symptoms until I came off the wellbutrin. ## I am very sorry about what you've had to d...

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis
14 Replies RSS
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 ...

Can Wellbutrin SR be taken once a day?
2 Replies RSS
Recently I started taking Wellbutrin SR (generic). I'm prescribed 100 mg twice daily. However, I've been taking been taking all 200 mg once a day in the morning. Ultimately, is the SR version still effective if only taken once a day? Why do people usually take it twice a day? Will I experience any disadvantages by taking it all at once? Today is my 8th day on Wellbutrin. I definitely feel SOME improvement. ## It is usually best to take it twice daily, as directed, due to the fact that its efficacy depends on it being maintained at a certain level in your body. Taking them both, at once, does not provide you a full 24 hours of medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help w...
