My pharmacy has changed manufacturers for bupropion. The tablet is now 3x larger than previous refills. It is a coated tablet but not extended release so I'm comfortable with crushing it. Still curious as to what added ingredients are needed from one company to another to necessitate such an increase in size.
Do not crush it. Bupropion is usually in the SR or XL versions that prevent you from breaking it in half. That said, even in the IR form, bupropion is a very caustic substance and can burn human tissue very easily. You could really do a number on you mouth, throat, and esophagus.
