I have been taking bupropion for a long time now. Remembering that Wellbutrin the name brand used to work better for me. I’m wondering whether they still have Wellbutrin ?
Hi Cheryl: Name brand Wellbutrin is still available. Last time I checked, it had gone up to $1389.00/month, and that was over a year ago! Waaaaaay out of my price range!!! No insurance will cover that one, no way, no how!!! Time to start educating yourself on the bupropion generic substitutes, (unless you are a Kardashian) (joke)! Last time I took name brand was in maybe 2001, maybe)? Since then, it has been a roller coaster of generic bupropion SR. The one which worked best for me was "Bupropion SR" 150mgs. made by Mylan pharmaceuticals. Insurance companies are not going to go near brand names when generics are available at a fraction of the cost! Good luck!
Insurance typically will not cover brand name prescriptions if there is a generic version available. However, some patients will have fewer side effects from the brand name. If the generics don't work well for you, then you may be able to get a coupon from the manufacture of Wellbutrin that will bring the cost down if you qualify. Just do a search for 'Wellbutrin coupon' and you should be able to find what you need.
