"Jane, I tried different generic versions of both bupropion sr and bupropion xl. The bupropion xl made by Par pharmaceuticals made me gain weight and caused me to have carb cravings. The most effective generic I have found, and am currently taking is bupropion sr by Mylan pharmaceuticals. It decreases my appetite. From what I have learned on these forums, the formula for the generics is supposed to be equivalent to the formula for the brand name, but people react differently to the fillers that are used and the time-release mechanisms vary from one generic version to another."
Ample, if you look at the dates of these postings, this is an old site. There are many of current ones that you can be a part of. Just join the wellbutrin group and other groups that interest you, and you can interact with people who are currently posting in real time. Let me know if I can be of help. "G"
Advise patients and caregivers that the patient using bupropion for smoking cessation should stop taking bupropion and contact a healthcare provider immediately if agitation, hostility, depressed mood, or changes in thinking or behavior that are not typical for the patient are observed, or if the patient develops suicidal ideation or suicidal behavior. In many postmarketing cases, resolution of symptoms after discontinuation of bupropion was reported, although in some cases the symptoms persisted; therefore, ongoing monitoring and supportive care should be provided until symptoms resolve.
