Avatar f tn Budeprion SR and Bupropion SR are both approved generics for Wellbutrin SR. You should be able to switch to the Budeprion SR without incident.
Avatar n tn I am also switching from celexa to budeprion sr. My doctor told me that they work in completely different parts of the brain, and she told me to take both my regular dose of celexa and the new dose of the budeprion together. I would definitely talk to your doctor, and maybe even get a second opinion.
Avatar f tn The first prescription was generic budeprion 150mg SR, twice a day. I took those for about a week then switched over to name brand Wellbutrin XL 150 mg just ONCE a day. I am told that I am still getting the same dose of medication in a 24 hour period, but just can't get my head around the dosage numbers. I see it as 150 mg every 12 hours on the generics, thus adding up to 300 mg in a 24 hour period. With the name brand I see it as 150 mg per 24 hour period.
Avatar n tn My husband was taking Wellbutrin sr 150 the doctor upped him to 200 sr and they gave him buprion 200 sr(on the bottle it says just Bupr). He had lots of energy on the Wellbutrin sr150 and was a pleasure to be arounds, but on this 200 buprionsr he goes to sleep and is like snappen at me all the time. After reading some of these questions I am worried that things are going to go back to the way they were before he started taking his meds.

Avatar n tn and referred me to movement disorder specialist (appointment scheduled 10/08)..........Very frustrating......Noting I was on Budeprion SR for 6 years, last 3 at 150mg/day, Simvastatin at 20mg/day for 2 years, still on Omeprazole at 20mg/day for 2 years and I understand all can causes tremors.......I stopped Budeprion 5/08 and (coincidentally?
Avatar m tn Hey, I've been on 300 mg Budeprion SR (150 morning/150 afternoon) for almost 5 weeks to treat mild depression and I haven't noticed anything except decreased sleep and appetite. What's up with that? I wanted to take it due to my apathy and lack of motivation, mood's fine as is, probably too fine. But no good effects at all yet, except harders boners.

863754 tn?1239144755 First off... Hi everyone and thanks for making such a great site! My aunt's doctor gave her Budeprion SR 150 mg to help quit smoking. A friend of her's told her that you're not supposed to take it, if you take any medications for diabetes. She does take a pill (not sure which and didn't think to ask her) for her diabetes and I told her I'd try to find out if it could cause any problems.
Avatar n tn I have just begun taking Budeprion SR. 150 milligrams a day. The paper the pharmacy gave me said to contact a dr immediately if I got a sore throat. I have a sore throat, and I want to know if I need to stop taking the medication. On another website, throat irriatation is listed as a rare side effect. I called my dr, and the nurse looked it up and said that sore throat was listed as a side effect. So, I am confused. Should I stop taking the medication? Is this a dangerous side effect?
370801 tn?1264405018 I have heard that with the SR, it doesn't make a difference of generic or brand (as it reportedly does with the XL). For this reason, I take the generic bupropion SR (also it is cheaper for me). When I started, I was taking the SR 150mg only in the morning, then after 4 weeks the dr. had me take it 150mg in the morning and 150mg in the evening.
Avatar f tn I started 150xl budeprion and read all the comments about it being worse, FDA approval, more side effects etc. I actually felt high the first week and then I just felt so much better; I didn't realize how depressed I was. Then my doctor and I agreed to increase to 300xl so I took two of the 150xl budeprion in the morning. I felt a little high but much better so I told her to go ahead with writing for 300xl. I got my rx and the pharmacy gave my 300xl bupropion (BUPR) not (BUD).
Avatar n tn • Claiming that the time to peak plasma concentration (Tmax) of bupropion hydrochloride after ingesting Budeprion XL is identical to that in Wellbutrin XL, when studies have confirmed that the Tmax for Budeprion XL is less than one-half of that for Wellbutrin XL; • Claiming that Budeprion XL did not carry with it a risk of dose dumping when taken with food, though reports have indicated that food may increase chance for toxicity; • Claiming that human studies were done comparing Budeprion XL t
Avatar f tn My Dr. increased my Wellbutrin XL 300mg to 450mg daily. I take the generic Budeprion Mfg: by TEVA USA. I've been having a hard time finding the ones made by TEVA lately. I've tried numerous other generics as well as other anti-depressants. Nothing has helped like Budeprion by TEVA. I found out today that they are under a class action lawsuit and will no longer make this drug. What are the ones who it has helped since 2006? What are we to do?
Avatar m tn I have hypertension, and I am also on 150SR of budeprion (Wellbutrin). I swear to my doctor and to the pyschiatrist I see that this must be induced by the budeprion. To test things out, I weaned myself off of the drug around January and remained only on 60mg of Cymbalta. I suffer from depression and anxiety. The Cymbalta (I used to be on Zoloft) is really not all that by itself...no sex drive, fatigue, and general apathy.
Avatar n tn Are there any antidepressants that will make me more alert rather than sleepy and tired? This has been my experience with all the drugs I've tried so far. Budeprion being the last one and the worse cause it makes me so sleepy and lethargic, yeah too often I find myself sitting there as if lifeless, staring into space, feeling like a rock with no feelings or emotions...Are there any drugs that will give me more pep and energy instead of making me just wanna stay in bed all day?

Avatar m tn Obviously, this medication is intended to be taken orally. It has many side effects such as seizures, hallucinations, palpitations, and confusion. Budeprion should never be used with alcohol or cocaine as the interaction can lead to seizures and fatalities.
Avatar n tn Iam weaning off from my Budeprion xl and want to make sure Iam doing it right...unfortunatley I do not have a physician at this time as I have moved to Europe...I was prescribed Budeprion instead of the Wellbutrin xl in error by my doctor and did not notice it until I got here. I have been taking the pill everyother day for a little over a week..any suggetions on how long to do this or what to do next? I have been on this generic for about 4 weeks and prior with Wellbutrin for about 3 months..
906666 tn?1247705701 felt like my lips were swelling and my mind was confused, heart was racing. They took me off Levequin (antibiotic). I feel better today (Fri 6/5/09). Ok so I'm also on Prednisone and Budeprion and Methylyn so I'm all weird.
Avatar n tn I've been off Lexapro for 10 days now, and started Budeprion XL 3 days ago, is it normal to still have elctric shocks from withdrawals? Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do to slow down or minimize the electric shocks in my body??
Avatar m tn for approximately 1 year, i've been getting random "episodes", heart racing with chest pain, dizzyness, nervousness, shooting pains through both sides of my body, starting from my chest. i have seen several doctors, gotten ekg's, catscans, x-rays, and they don't find anthing. each time they tell me i'm probably having an anxiety attack. i have been prescribed lorazapan, then budeprion; neither of which have worked.
Avatar m tn t think that is either right or fair. Statistics will tell you the success rate of AA is higher than SR but that really does not matter. What matters is finding something that works for you. I am celebrating one year sober yesterday and it is so nice having my life back. Addiction was a ***** and whether it be AA or SR the only thing that matters is today and maybe tomorrow.
Avatar m tn So nice to see that others are experiencing the same symptoms that I have been experiencing. Had all the tests, the blood work, kegs, nothing wrong. X-Rays, been in ER three times. Can't catch my breath. It's awful, but I know I'm not alone.
801494 tn?1238016887 did not work out- probably am not going to it is late. I am tired.
Avatar m tn I am wondering what formulation does the new moisturizer called SR Lotion have that makes my skin look smoother now. I had this bad skin condition (keratosis Pilaris) which shows dry patched skin in my arms. There must be something in it because I had been using many creams in the past, but all of those creams just moisturize the affected area a bit and then it goes drier again after three days.
