I've read postings that... Indicate it does not but I want to be wrong since I'm stuck with the generic
In my opinion yes, but that is just an opinion. Can't back it with facts from a clinical study. I'll be curious to see what others write in.
All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns each generic a rating. An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic Wellbutrin versions currently available have an "AB" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to Wellbutrin.
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than their brand-name versions. These inactive ingredients might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
Hello RESPIGHI. I was on wellbutrin . My dose was 300mg. I have taken both. I never noticed any diiference. None. If I had to take either one again, the generic vs non-generic, it would not be an issue. Only, say if it were to come out of pocket, no insurance, I would take the generic. I posted this earlier and it did not show,so I am trying it again. Best wishes to youRESPIGHI.
I too have taken both. I took the name brand back when Wellbutrin first came out. There was not yet a generic available. I now take the generic and the only difference between the two that I notice, is the effect it has on my wallet. Hope this helps.
