Common Questions and Answers about Wellbutrin xl generic vs brand

wellbutrin

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 I actually googled my observations about generic vs brand and weight loss. I started on Wellbutrin 350 and almost immediatley began to feel better. I was so pleased I told my doctor they should put this stuff in the water. I slowly lost weight around 8-10 pounds in 3 months. My insurance (unbeknownst to me)switched me to the generic and I started noticing my weight creeping up and it did not seem nearly as effective. My husband kept asking me "Did you take your meds today?".
Avatar m tn Yesterday morning I popped my first Wellbutrin XL. Wellbutrin for those neuro pharmacologically healthy is an AD (antidepressant). First time with ADs, and as mentioned in a previous thread, it's not so much I feel *depressed* as feeling a lack of motivation to get back to what is left of my former life.
Avatar f tn This is more common, but usually less important. It's worth discussing with your doctor. I was on wellbutrin xl and was switched to generic. Over a period of 2 years my depression gradually worsened - almost unnoticeably until I was unable to work more than 2/3 of the week and was very irritable, sensitive, and anxious, as well as the typical despondency.
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 Weren't you on Effexor XR before. Maybe you won't be able to take the generic. I took Wellbutrin for awhile, tried it again years later and thought I was losing it.
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!!!
