I've been hearing so much about how people were doing well on brand name Wellbutrin, and then were switched by insurance to generics and had trouble. One generic has already been pulled off the market. My insurance won't pay for brand name if there is a generic, so I started on a generic from Global Pharm. it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I think it would be very helpful if people specified whether they are on generic bupropion and if so, by which manufacturer. If there is a generic that actually works, I'd like to find it. Meanwhile checking out trying to get Wellbutrin through Direct Success Pharmacy, $50 a month vs the $350 the pharmacy charges, but I don't know if it's some kind of scam.
I have had good success working with Direct Success Pharmacy via the WellbutrinXL.com website. Am now on the brand name drug for $50/month. After taking Watson's generic for years, it was taken off the market last fall. I have taken Anchen's generic with very poor results. Thus decided to see if I could get back on the brand name version instead of rolling the dice with yet another generic. Once I submitted the Direct Success form signed by my doctor, I received a call the next day - with a 90 day supply of Wellbutrin 300 XL in my mailbox 11 days later.
I had been on name brand Wellbutrin for years with much success. My insurance forced me into generic version, I had horrible crying spells, decided to go off of the generic. I then found Direct Success, went back on Wellbutrin with no success at all. I felt more depressed, I don't know if it no longer works for me or if there is a difference in the ingredients.
Direct Success Pharmacy is not a scam. After trying 3 different generic "brands" I am using them. They provide brand name Wellbutrin and even do automatic refills. As long as my doctor writes my script as "DAW," I don't pay a dime. The amount you will pay is dependent on how much your copay is normally. I was lucky enough to fall into the "no cost" catagory. If you have any questions, give them a call. I have tried other pharmaceutical assistance plans, and by far they have the nicest and most helpful customer service.
