Pharmacy switched my generic to Cipla brand and I've had excruciating headaches, nausea and feeling just "unwell" and itchy, but also painful bumps on my skin... Wondering if anyone else has noticed any weird effects when switching to this generic.
You are not the only one that has had their generics switched to a different manufacturer and had bad reactions. Cipla is a multinational pharmacuital company in India. They do not have the same quality or standards. You should report this to the FDA if you are in the US. Report it to your doctor as soon as possible. You should not be having these reactions. Go to your pharmacy and or call and request that you have the generic brand you were on before. See if they can order it if they do not have it. If they can not get it you can call to see what pharmacy does and have your prescription sent to that pharmacy. The pharmacies change generics due to cheaper costs. It is a shame that patient suffer.
Hope it all works out for you soon.
I don't know yet if this is related to cipla bupropion, but I'm getting a bitter taste in my mouth when I eat any grains such as pizza or cookies, roughly since I started taking cipla bupropion.
I got cipla bupropion pills from optum rx. It sucks that they keep changing the generic brand they send me. I was told I should pick up from local pharmacy if I want to keep the same brand.
Just wanted to report my experience so others can confirm if they experience the same thing.
I have just been switched to Cipla Bupropion XL 300mg... I had been on the ones from Watson and was doing fine for years. I had to call in sick to work this week due to blurry vision, headache (which I still have) and nausea! This is ridiculous. I've been told they don't have the other generic anymore. Any help or suggestions. I don't know which generic to try now or to look for!
I was switched to the Cipla version after being on the Sandoz version for 4 months. The Sandoz version was amazing! I felt more like “me” than I had since prior to having kids/postpartum/etc. I felt GOOD! I had my temper under control and I was generally happy. It all changed with the Cipla. I was exhausted, had severe headaches, back/neck muscle stiffness, confusion, feeling distant and would cry at the drop of a hat! It was horrible! I switched back to the Sandoz brand. I’m on day 4 of back on my normal and I feel much better— hopefully will feel 100% within a few more days.
