Can someone tell me what the difference between Wellbutrin and Bupropion is and why one might be prescribed over the other ?? Is one better than the other ?
Wellbutrin is the name brand and Bupropion is the generic name.
Wellbutrin is one of the brand names and bupropion is the active ingredient and generic form of the medication.
I have the same question, aly1966. I'm sure you were already aware that Wellbutrin is a brand name for buprion and want to know if they are exactly the same except for the name. It might be coincidence but when my pharmacy provider switched me from Wellbutrin to bupropion my blood pressure dropped from about 148/65 to about 126/65 and I have developed some serious dizziness and fatigue.
