Common Questions and Answers about What does generic wellbutrin xl look like


1699033 tn?1514116733 Okay, I have been on Wellbutrin 300 xl (generic) for more than a month now. I am still a little jittery in the morning but not as bad. I get headaches every afternoon/evening and so I have to beat them to the punch with an Aleve at about 2:00 and even then I may still get the headache but just not as bad. Constipation has set in, still dealing with the dry mouth, and I have breakthrough panic attacks. I have been trying to self-coach my way through them..
Avatar f tn Almost all my patients are on generic medications including generic toprol xl. There are some medications that have a recognized difference between brand name and generic, and there are some brand name drugs that do not have generics because they were too difficult to produce. The medication will be out of your system in less than 5 days. As far as lasting effects, it is difficult to say. Like I mentioned, I have not heard of this happening before and have no personal experience with it.
656309 tn?1224493459 I thought it was because the med was generic, but even after getting the brand name, I still feel like ****. My posts even look rambling, disjointed, fearful and crazy. I was on celexa before and slept all the time, and was numb to the world. I have never felt this angry, aggressive and irritable before. (on or off medication) I think I'll be replacing the WB with exercise, good eating, and some good vitamins and supplements.
Avatar n tn Today the lightbulb went on and I decided to look up what affect Wellbutrin might have on weight loss/gain. I'm not depressed so I don't want to take it for depression but I am so alarmed at this weight gain that I think I will go back and finish off my bottle until I figure it out. Has anyone else had this problem with quiting Wellbutrin?
Avatar f tn But every one is different. Good luck to you. I like the Wellbutrin because the side effects are non existant for me.
Avatar f tn Hi all, Today is day 2 on Wellbutrin XL 150mg generic. First, I will list all the side effects I am noticing. None of which my dr mentioned, other than to take it in the morning: On my first day on Wellbutrin, I noticed an increase in energy and excessive yawning. Woke up today (day 2) with a piercing headache and the muscles in my legs are sore like I ran a marathon, my abdominal muscles ache like I did a ton of sit ups, and a couple hours ago I noticed lower back soreness.
Avatar n tn I have been on wellbutrin xl for a little over a month. I feel like I am starving all of the time! I can't seem to control myself. My mood is better most of the time but I still feel like I could explode! Maybe I haven't been taking it long enough. Before I started taking it I had lost 40 lbs. I have started to regain some of that. Also, the seizures that everyone is talking about is making me a little nervous. I also take metformin.
Avatar m tn I read that Wellbutrin is actually a medicine to help you quit smoking as well, so in order to continue the feel good state, I started taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg, I've been on it for a week now, I can't feel any major differences maybe just placebo effect that I feel better and would like to know if I can up my dose to 300MG. How can I know if I am suffering from depression?
Avatar n tn I was on that for two months with only modest improvement. I since have seen a new psychiatrist who put me on Wellbutrin Xl 150 for one week and felt ok, then increased to 300mg. He also increased the Buspar to 60mg a day at the same time of adding the Wellbutrin. The first couple of days I felt better but then I went down hill fast at the 300mg level and he reduced it to 150mg. I have this gut feeling that the Buspar and Wellbutrin are fighting each other, multiple reasons to believe this.
5050843 tn?1362873926 Did you have any of the "brain zaps" while transitioning over? im transitioning from zoloft to wellbutrin & feel like my eyes kinda skip a beat, like they stop when i turn my head & have to "restart"? Are those brain zaps??
587279 tn?1223704355 I feel like the Wellbutrin does not work as well anymore. I too Wellbutrin for 10 years and loved the side effects. Ten years later, I started again and it does not work as well? Why? I lost weight, stopped oversleeping and felt normal?
Avatar f tn Does anyone take Wellbutrin XL with this? How is that working out? I am concerned as take that also.
Avatar f tn Needless to say that I didn't need all these medications as I am doing fine with my new psychiatrist only prescribing me the Wellbutrin XL which I get the generic for. Just try and be patient...look who's talking I know, but sometimes it just take a lot of trial and error to get the right fit we are all unique and so are medications.
Avatar f tn 5 every other day and feeling okay I stopped and started my new prescription, Wellbutrin-- well, for two days now I'm nauseous, shaky, hot/cold sweats, feel like my eyes are vibrating somewhat when I make too fast of motion with my head. It's as if I have symptoms of Vertigo and can't fix it. I'd rather be shot in the foot and deal with that discomfort and pain than these annoying side-effects. What do I do?
Avatar n tn i was put on wellbutrin xl (150 mg) back in january..ive been doing really good, and it has helped alot. My problem is that my copay for this is 50$ every time i fill it...this adds up after awhile...and ive been doing some research into supplements (vitamins) Ive read that gingko biloba can help with depression. My question is..does anyone know if you take the gingko ..will it counteract with my wellbutrin or cause any side affects?? I also recently found out my cholesterol is high, 231...
889551 tn?1416188083   Communication is very important.  You need to know what to look for in terms of how the meds effect you.  If the doc says start with this and call in a month - get a new doc.
  All of these meds are really very safe.  They have been used by millions and studied (in some cases) for more then 50 years.  Unfortunately, some times, a doctor is too busy or simply ignorant, and a patient can suffer because of that.  Hence, the importance of communication.
459969 tn?1398173854 5, and 3 of the Wellbutrin/Generic-XL., this has been for quite a few months and might seem like an odd combo., but for my last 20yrs. I have tried a lot of different things that never seemed to stick with, but this; for me works. Good luck and I thought I would just share.
Avatar m tn Although I think it has increased until I started Prozac last week (I only took it for 3 days and just switched to Bupropion XL 150 mg (generic Wellbutrin). I decided to try something again because I was told my symptoms could be because of depression...but I'm depressed because of my symptoms! I didn't feel any less tired, etc. while on the antidepressants in the past...Since Prozac causes sexual side effects, I didn't want to be on it.
Avatar m tn It's like I feel like I don't know how to live without taking these pills every day, like I can't enjoy anything unless I am on pills and I'm scared that I will feel that way forever. I have also been on antidepressants (Wellbutrin XL) for a couple years and it helps, but not when it comes to fighting my cravings. How can I strengthen myself mentally? What can I look forward to when I'm miserable withdrawing every day, and will that WD depression ever go away?!
Avatar f tn decide how u want to be and head for that....it is like when sliding on ice, we r told not to look at the ditch or that is where we will end up....look away toward where u want to go, or be.....
Avatar n tn My heart was beating out of control. I was having muscle spasms and I felt like I couldn't move my legs. I didn't know what to do so my girlfriend called an ambulance and I went to the hospital. They checked my blood for lyme disease,vitamin deficiencies,poisons, blood sugar. The doctor told me that they tested my blood for everything under the sun. They gave me a ct scan and a ekg. They send me home with no diagnosis. I was still tingling and very dizzy.
Avatar f tn Sorry, kido, started refinishing my outdoor deck in the late afternoon and kind of exhausted myself. Back to your first psyc's note about you not being a patient. I would take a written request from your present doctor and hand carry it to your first psyc. Maybe take their bill with you to prove you were in there. There is a reason he tried you on concerta (still think that there was a reaction between the paxil and the concerta).
Avatar n tn Off and on for the last year, I have experienced what feels like an adrenalin surge that wakes me up from sleep and usually occurs around 4:00-5:00 in the a.m. I can literally feel it coming on and then my heart rate goes up. My heart rate goes up around 110-120 bpm and feel anxious, arms feel a tingling sensation. I am 55 years old and have recently had an echo sonogram and stress test. The cardiologist could not find anything and stated that my valves looked good.
Avatar n tn heya, Glad I came across this community, enjoyed reading some of the posts, helpful info for sure. Currently I am taking Wellbutrin XL, topamax, Lamictal, and Xanax (for sleep) and have been feeling desperate on what to try next for my Bipolar. I started on meds over 10 years ago when I was "diagnosed" (although not told with that terminology", then put eventually on Seraquel, Zoloft, Prozac, Buspar, Celexa......
696149 tn?1314324559 If the attempt is being made to treat your depression with opiate therapy, I'm not sure Subutex or Subpxone is the right opiate...You're getting this from a doctor right? What does the doctor say about this side effect? That's who you need to be talking with. Breathing difficulties are nothing to mess with,as you know! It isn't anxiety is it? Call the doctor and good luck with this!
Avatar n tn (if i am lucky, which i am usually not.) Well, i like this web page here, and i like to hear what this drug has done, and is doing for others, so please continue to post!!!!! I will continue too! I will continue to update. (not on a daily basis though, not to worry....lol....
