... pill by Sandoz and it doesn't seem as effective. Does anyone known the drug company making the small red bupropian tablet?
I was on generic Wellbutrin, always a small red pill; the new prescription is a large lt. purple?
Added 3 Mar 2010:
I found that the small red pill WAS NOT generic but actual Wellbutrin made by GlaxoSmithKline. The generic buproprion does not seem as effective AT ALL and I,ve never had that problem with a generic before.
Take a look at the pills here and see if you can see your old pill.
Both Sandoz's 75mg and 100mg tablet are described as Lavender (GG 929 / GG 930) so I'm not sure which strength you are taking.
If you have any of the red tablets left, let us know the imprint on them if they are not pictured in the link above.
Eon makes the only red one which is 100mg that I show, there's also ones of diff shades of pink, it also comes in all other shades of the rainbow. If you tell us the mg's it'll help narrow it down.
I suggest you avoid Sandoz, another mfr's might prove just as effective for you, or try name brand by GSK (Glaxo Smith Kline), you can almost never go wrong with name brand.
