wellbutrin

Avatar n tn I meant to say "generic" version of Wellbutrin. Sorry about the typo.
Avatar n tn Buproprion is just the chemical name for the brand name Wellbutrin. Buproprion SR means Substained Released. Indeed the generic could be not working, I've seen this happen in some people. Better check this out with his doctor.
Avatar n tn Hello, I was on the Brand Name Wellbutrin XL150 - 2 years ago and could not tolerate it ( anger, jitters etc). I am now on the Wellbutrin SR 200 and I feel great. One thing I did learn was no-no-no caffeine. That could have been my problem 2 years ago when taking it, I was drinking loads of coffee!! I drink decaf everything. I have only been on a couple weeks now, but I have no appetite, and lots of energy. I will report back on weightloss. My sister lost her baby weight with Wellbutrin.
Avatar m tn I will say I have one friend who didn't respond as well with the generic as the name brand. Dunno why either. Another week and you should know something. You started a day ago, right? Best of luck to you. Smiles are on the way. If that don't work, read the thread about how to kill HCV with Tide. Oh never mind, you posted a good funny there!

I will let everyone know how this all turns out!
Avatar m tn TEVA is currently under its second investigation by the FDA after reports of their generic for Wellbutrin XL "not working properly." I didn't know Effexor had a generic already. I was taking this until December 2009, and I was getting the brand name only- for 37.5, 75, and 150 mg capsules. You really would have to try both to see if one truly works best for you.
1110049 tn?1409405744 Also keep in mind that your on Generic Venlafaxne which has no sustained slow release property to it like the name brand Effexor XR. This makes a big difference because Venlafaxine (Generic) has a very fast onset of release which may excite anxiety in some people prone to anxiety. Effexor XR has a much slower release and avoids this spike with it's extended release properties. Venlafaxine also has a pretty short half life also, which is why Effexor was designed with this slow release effect.
Avatar f tn Does anyone take Wellbutrin XL with this? How is that working out? I am concerned as take that also.
Avatar n tn I am weaning myself off and have started Wellbutrin XL up to 300mg now. I agree with the withdrawal symptoms. It's almost as if the manufacturer doesn't want us to stop it (more money for them!!) Good luck to everyone.

Avatar m tn -Variable penis texture and weight (flaccid+firm vs. lighter-than-normal vs. almost normal, etc.). -Occasional itching on the left and right side, near the base. -More visible veins throughout the penis. -Left-side vein prominence. One left-side vein is much darker than I remember, and stands out the most amongst the aforementioned prominent veins.
Avatar n tn and unfortunately I have to stay on the hormones to control the endo pain. I started taking Wellbutrin XL a month ago to help a little with the mood swings I get from the 'menopause' but haven't had any luck losing weight on it. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful, thank you!!!
