I started the generic bupropian xl made by Watson Labs and I've experienced extreme hunger pangs that won't be satisfied. Is this the generic or is this how my body responds on all Wellbutrin?
Here is my opinion (& many agree with this): generic bupropian xl is identical to the brand name. The side effects one experiences with one will be replicated with the other. (As a clarifier - there are those who are on the other side of this fence.) Suggestion: talk to your prescribing physician; make sure s/he knows; keep him/her in the loop. I take bupropian; not the xl but 150 twice a day. this works for me; may or may not work for you. Wish you the best in your effort. You are not fighting the fight alone.
That fact that you are on the generic Wellbutrin (bupropion) shouldn't matter as far as the side effects. The active ingredient is still the same. As far as hunger pains, never did that to me usually curbs the appetite. Give it sometime and I think you'll find it very effective.
