I recently worked in the prison system, as a nurse, dispensing the inmates medication. One of the rules I had to follow, was to crush the welbutrin, and float it in water, before giving it to the inmate. I can't remember the reason I had to do this. Can u help? Just curious. ## I'm not certain, but based on my own idea, I spoke to a pharmacist and he had similar thoughts. It seems that with some of these pills, the coating is rather thick, so someone could hold it in their mouth for awhile, then spit it out later and not have ingested any of the medication. This, it may just have been a way to ensure they were ingesting the medication and not avoiding it. Are there any other questions or comments? ## No, that wasn't why, but thanks for inquiring. I want to think it gives a e... ...


small white round tablet inscribed with A 102 ## I can't find anything listed under this, can you please double check the imprint? ## I get bupropion xl 300mg tablets, and they say a 102 on them. It used to be an oval pill (light yellow, number 682) Don't worry it is the Generic. =) ## Thank you Alice for providing this information. Sometimes generics are released so fast, that it takes awhile for the professional prescription databases to keep up, so some things aren't always found listed right away when they are new on the market. ## it is A102, not 102, by the way. =) ## Thanks Alice, I did find it listed under the A 102, the professional database I use updates regularly and this one was just added. It is Bupropion 300mgs, a generic for Wellbutrin XL. ...

Is this Welbutrin?

I am (suposed!) to be on 300mg xl Welbutrin- No web page so far could identify this pill - its suposed to be Welbutrin300mg xl - but the inscription on it in black reads GS & under it 5YZ - can anyone please help identify it? Thanks ## I can't find a listing for this. Are you in the U.S.? It could be a very new tablet on the market. Did you contact your pharmacy to double check? ## Hi - Thank you for trying to look it up for me. I am from South Africa. I didn't want to phone my pharmacist, because she is actually a very good friend of mine for year's, I was afraid to offend her, so I phoned Glaxo Smith Kline's head office in Johannesburg (South Africa) today, and the lady there described the pill to me as creme coloured, round& with the letters like I said in my ... ...

generic to Welbutrin

Is anyone having trouble with the new generic for Wellbutrin? It doesn't seem to be working as well. I hesitate to go back to the original Rx since it is so expensive. HELP. ## i just took generic and don't know it that's the reason I have been feeling more energy and some wakefullness at night. ## There are many people who have been having a problem with it, though the FDA says the differences are insignificant. In reality, generic medications DO NOT have to be exactly like their name brand counterparts. They are allowed to differ in the ACTIVE ingredient by plus or minus 20%. In addition, the ingredient used DOES NOT have to be the same, they only have to prove that it is 'biologically equivelent' and works in the body in the same manner as the name brand did. The ... ...

welbutrin keeping you up at night?

I am also on generic welbutrin. at first I noted it gave me a lot of energy but it also was affecting my anxiety. so I upped my Xanax to handle the extra anxiety and that seemed to work. I also think It was giving me restless leg syndrome. so , I started taking one third the pill one time per day. after awhile my body got used to it and now im up to two full pills per day. they are also supposed to help you stop smoking but I think im smoking more. as far as sleeping at night, I make a point to never to take one after 2pm. that way it wont effect my sleeping. but it does give you energy make you a bit hyper and can cause anxiety although I told my doctor this she treated me like I was being silly because its for anxiety and depression., I don't think it has done anything for my depr... ...

Has anyone lost their appetite from welbutrin?

I am finding that food is pretty disgusting but I can still eat, I just really don't want to... I started taking welbutrin 10 days ago and ever since then I haven't been able to eat. I didn't take it today to see what would happen and I'm still not hungry. I'm underweight as it is and REALLY scared. ## once again, i've been on Wellbutrin for about 2 years and yes, there are days when i just don't feel like eating. For me this is good as i have had problems in my teens with bulimia. i still try to eat three to five small meals a day because i know i need the nutrition. but i am not tempted to binge and purge because i rarely over eat. maybe you should consult with your doctor to find another medication that will work better for you. be sure to let him know all... ...

appetite suppresants used with cymgen and welbutrin

What appetite suppresant is safe to use with Cymgen, Welbutrin, Topamax and Epilum? I have Bipolar Disorder. My weight gain is really a problem. ## Have you consulted your doctor? With your medical history and the medications that you're on, it would be remiss of anyone not familiar with your medical file to try and suggest any medication for you to use, as it could be very dangerous. However, your doctor should be able to help you discover what are the best and safest weight loss solutions for you. ...

Antidepressant Combination

I have been on Welbutrin 150mg for a few years and may need to add another antidepressant now. 300 mg is too much for me and doesn't work. I was given Lexepro 10mg but do not want to continue with this drug. Does anyone have any recommendations on what I could take that wouldn't have the horrific side and withdrawal effects of Lexepro? My issue is depression. Appreciate any feedback. ## Hello, Cassie! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. What type of doctor are you consulting? I think a specialist would be best, because many of the other antidepressant react badly with the Wellbutrin, they tend to increase its toxicity, which could be dangerous. You might be able to aid a low dose of a medication like Abilify, which is approved to augment that act... ...

viibryd headache

I'm 28 and was taken off welbutrin and buspirone and put on viibryd 40mg I was not dosed up BC I was already on the others. I have hard horrible headaches, more anxiety, muscle pain, sleeplessness, more frequent bowel movements (which I am greatful for), cravings for sweets and have gained 5lbs over the past two weeks :( I don't know what else to do the old meds only helped me concentrate. But did little to nothing for my anxiety and depression. ## Hi, Ashely! Sorry about the problems you're having. Side effects such as this may be experienced any time you start a new medication, or increase the dosage of an existing one. They can last for about 4 to 6 weeks, then they will usually start to taper off as your body has a chance to adjust. However, if the headaches are that sev... ...

Pamelor and wellbutrin xl

Anyone taking Pamelor and welbutrin together ## Yes I am taking Pamelor 50mg with Wellbutrin 150mg, it seems to work but i still have my ups and downs. Dr going to check on me to see if she needs to up the dosage. Everyone says that it's a bad combo, I do not believe that or else my dr wouldn't have prescribed it to me. ## The NIH does warn that there is a risk of seizures, when you combine Amitriptyline, and Wellbutrin, since both can lower your seizure threshold, so they should only be taken together, with a doctor's approval, and regular monitoring. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. If you have a history of experiencing seizures, you should consult your doctor about trying other options. Are there any other questions? ...

Wellbutrin 300xl & Deplin 15

What are the affects of combining Welbutrin xl 300 and Deplin 15? I've been on Welbutrin for more than 10 years. Recently went to the doctor complaining of lack of focus, concentration and memory loss. She prescribed the Deplin to take with the Welbutrin. After one dose I feel agitated and irritable. I couldn't find anywhere when I researched that Deplin helps with concentration and focus. Everything I read says it helps depression by boosting the antidepressant you're on. Funny thing, my Welbutrin side effects say it can cause lack of concentration. ? Wondering if anyone has any insight. ## Yes, those symptoms can be normal side effects of Wellbutrin, as reported by the FDA, and taking the Deplin would only augment them and make them worse, just like it helps augment the ac... ...

cymbalta and wellbutrin

Is 60mg of cymbalta the same as 150 mg of Welbutrin ## Hello, Dee! How are you? These two aren't in the same class of medications, so they really wouldn't be considered the same, at all. They can't be used interchangeably. You can learn more specific Wellbutrin details here. It's an atypical antidepressant that's also used to aid in smoking cessation. And at this link you can learn more Cymbalta details and see that it's an SNRI antidepressant. Has your doctor switched you from one to the other? ...

bupropion m b9

I was taking bupropion MPI 3332, round white tablet(Generic Welbutrin 30xl), I changed pharmacies and recieved this white oblong caplet with M B9 printed on one side. I felt alot of anxity start to build over the next few days and the one cigarette I had finally worked down to(ultra light 72 [the teeny shot ones]), was now back up to half pack or more and full on regular light 100's! I thought nothing of it other than a breif passing moment while in the pharmacy and that was that. Well now hindsight 20/20 I think these are crap and switch backed to my old pharmacy and doing much better. ## Hi T Beau, Sorry to hear about your experience with that other generic you switched over to. From what I understand, there could've been a lot less of the actual active ingredients in that par... ...

Major Deppression

Which drugs will really help? I have been using Cymbalta 60mg and Welbutrin 300mg for about 7 yrs and have hit a low and have had 100mg Serez added? Will it help if Wellbutrin gets removed and replaced with 200mg Serez? ## I wish I could help answer your question, but unfortunately there's really no honest way of knowing ahead of time how any medication will end up effecting you without any prior knowledge of your medical history, and other individual factors that help determine which medication is more likely to work. However, judging from the reviews on this site, "generic" Wellbutrin (Bupropion) seems to be a popular choice for many patients. Maybe just switching to another brand of it may be helpful? I'm reading a lot about how different versions of the same medicati... ...
