Just curious. I see quite a difference in the generics. I've tried many of them, believe me. I see lots of people talk about wellbutrin xl. Personally, I didn't like it. However, I did find a generic wellbutrin sr that I feel works most like the brand name.
Bupropion - Which one do more people have better success with: Wellbutrin SR or Wellbutrin XL?

I took wellbutrin xl for some years and it did me the world of good, as you are aware we all react uniquely to medications (s.effects, benefits, risks, interactions, etc... ), forgot to mention I did not experience any s. effects.
Hope this helps.
Hi, G!! People have better success with the drug or formulation that they have the most success with. As my friend, masso, says everyone is unique and reacts in a unique way to every drug.
As Wellbutrin SR and XL are the same drug it's just a matter of how an individual reacts and which best fits their lifestyle.
I agree everyone is different. My sister took wellbutrin xl and about grinded her teeth out of her head. However, she was over 300lbs and felt it actually assisted in her weight loss of 100lbs in 1yr. I have taken wellbutrin sr going on 3mths now and so far so good. The first 2weeks a little increased irritability but now seems like a dramatic improvement.
What is the generic name? I would like to try it.
What is the name of the generic you found ? I’m not having much luck with bupropion.
Bupropion SR 150mgs - manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals. It is usually prescribed to be taken twice a day. It was more effective for me with the least side effects at 150 mgs. only one time a day. Taken this way, I had the most benefit with the least side effects.
I took wellburtin a few years ago,don't remember which one. I really need to switch back to wellburtin.
Yes I am with Mcg on this I find taking 1 to 2 daily of the S.R WORKS GREAT FOR ME and the doctor lets me float around with my dose on it. Hope your able to find what works best for you too
