I have received several different generics from my pharmacy, and some don't seem to work. I know one brand was recalled, so I'm curious as to which ones have been noted as "good"
Wellbutrin - Which generic brand hs been noted as the best equivalent to name brand welbutrin?

I say "Amen" to Bob's answer. I have heard many people comment positively about Sandoz brand of bupropion sr 150mg twice a day.
I tried many of the generics to find the one most like the brand name med for me. I take Bupropion SR 150mg twice a day manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals. We are all different, so you might have to try a couple to find what works for you. From being on this site for a couple of years, I have seen successful reviews about both the Sandoz generic and the Mylan generic.
Best by far: Sandoz 150sr (slow release) twice per day. I've spent the last few months researching and experimenting due to Valeant's ridiculous price of $1300 for 30 original brand pills. Valeant's Canadian "brand" for 300xl is not the same as the original by Glaxo - it's just like any other cheap generic. Valaent's pricing has caused millions of people (worldwide) to search for a viable replacement. It's a major problem for those of us who were on the brand when health insurance covered the drug. Now, no insurance company covers the brand, but Sandoz is an excellent alternative. The major pharmacies will not order it for you, so you'll need to go to an independent.
Hi Kaw06 i believe you had this or something about this the other day this is what i would normally say because the drug store has a record of each brand they have dispenced figure out which bottle or months worth was the one that workd for you and have them order that brand..some chain stores wont do this..OTHER wise here is a answer if you can't remember find out if on your generic wellbutrin if they can order,,, either of these brands DR.Reddy,or Aspen company both of these generics are made by the same company as wellbutrin gsk. IT took me awhile but i got all this infor off of google.But whoever wrote most about the manufactures most work for them because i would have to say at least 1/2 of what they are saying is bs...
like they were saying alot of this stuff started in 2012 about brand names making generic this is so fause it makes me sick.They have been doing this sence the begining of time..A good example is nothing to do with your med but a pain reliever which i looked up for someone else NORCO 10/325 THEY clamed they just made a deal with WATSON COMPANY to make there brand company generic last year..i have been medically disabled from pharmacy for over 10 years this month and i was dispening Watson brand and to my supprise it was even NORCO/325 IN THE WATSON bottle..there is too much room for ripping off customers this way they buy watson and sell it for brand name drug and nobody would know now of all the generic i have seen this is the only one that this was the case. Now go back to the start of this and do what you perfer i put down the 2 companys that make buprioion for the brand name wellbutrin or check with pharmacy for a date that one worked and they can look it up on there computer and tell you that brand you got on that date... chuck1957 med.retir.pharmacy Technician Cpht. this well work friend..if i have confused you at all... send me a im again. almost..89% of all generics are made now by the original manufacture..chuck..let me know if i can help.good luck i know it is frustration when this happens cw
I have been using Bupropion, generic for Wellbutrin. 300mg once in the morning and 150mg of Zoloft. This seems to work for me. I know it's awful trying to get medicine right. Best wishes on you getting the right medicine for you. God Bless
