Has anyone tried both brand name and generic Wellbutrin and noticed a significant difference?
just for the record xl and sr are different Wellbutrin's one is a 12hr and one is a 24hr the active drug in Wellbutrin is the same with generic's the only difference is what they call the binders a few people do have problems with that but the BRAND and the Generic ARE both allowed a 3.5% very slight difference between them.In most cases not enough to effect a person.The FDA has really tightened up the regulations from years ago. Most people do not notice a difference in trials they even draw blood from both brands to make sure at the same peak time the drug level is the same prior to oking a generic drug.
You did not say how long you have been on the Wellbutrin many of the side effects go away after 2 to 3 weeks for many people please save your money and just double check your getting the right one each time But there always is the chance this is not the medication for you if your having trouble and its been 6 weeks or more check back with your doctor and see what she or he has to say..Have a good week medically retired pharmacy technician Cpht. Please feel free to go to the F.D.A WEBSITE TO VERIFY WHAT I HAVE SAID.
I, also, am having trouble with Apotex Bupropion 100. I've been on Bupropion/Wellbutrin for many years. Walmart recently switched their generics from Mylan to Apotex. The Bupropion I take is "supposed" to be exactly the same but I am getting increasingly more introverted and anxious feeling and seem to cry at the drop of a hat. Also, the coating breaks apart with the slightest humidity and living in the south that is a problem. I have to swallow the tablet quickly and eat something or brush my teeth right away as the tablet melts instantly and the taste is horrendous. I don't know if the disintegrating coating affects the efficacy of the med or if there is a strength difference or what the problem is. Hopefully, someone in the forum will have an answer. Thank you.
