Wellbutrin Seizure Anxiety!

Hi. Today is my second day taking 150mg of Wellbutrin. Just for a bit of background, I'm 18 years old, afab, weighing 119 lbs, and 5’3” tall. I don't have a history of seizures, I don't drink, but I do vape. I recently noticed that taking Wellbutrin can increase the risk of seizures, and seeing as I have severe hypochondria, this has been making panic. I keep seeing online so many people saying they had a seizure and it made my anxiety about it worse. What would be the probability of me having a seizure? And if it did happen, could it be fatal? ## Have you spoken with your doc about your concerns? No anti-depressant or anxiolytic medicine is without risks. It appears that the risk of seizures with this drug increase with dose. You’re at 1/2 of the recommend...

Wellbutrin XL - not losing weight anymore?

I'm a 26 year old female taking 450mg once daily. I've been on Wellbutrin for proabably about a year and a half and it helps so much with depression and it helped me lose weight! The pounds were dropping! I also was doing weight watchers but even when I ate horrible I would lose or not gain, at all! Now.... it's not helping me with weight loss? My depression is at bay but it's not helping me keep weight off anymore... has anyone else have this happen? Idk what to do... advice please. ## Wellbutrin by itself is generally weight neutral and doesn't cause weight gain, or weight loss. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Has anything else changed, such as your diet, or activity levels? Are you on any ...

Wellbutrin drug test for semi-truck driving

I got 2 drug tests, one to get into collage for semi-truck driving and one hair drug test for when I start driving semi trucks. Will wellbutrin XL 150mg show up on the drug test? ## This is a medication that is used to treat depression, anxiety, and to aid in smoking cessation, so it is not something that is normally included in standard drug tests. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yes it will show up as an amphetamine, tell your company and MRO.

Wellbutrin XL Coupon Program Change. Anyone else?

I've been using the coupon program to get my brand Wellbutrin XL 300mg for $100/month for the past couple years. This past refill in January the pharmacy said the coupon program had changed and if your insurance doesnt pay anything at all toward the rx, which mine doesnt, then the coupon wont either, making it full price if I want it. Anyone else having this problem? ## The current coupon on the Wellbutrin XL manufacturer's savings site is only a copay savings coupon, it is not intended to help with the cost of the full prescription, and it is only intended to be used by each individual for 12 months. Unfortunately, they are not obligated to offer coupons, at all, and many companies stop doing so, once a generic is available for the medication they manufacture. If your pharmacy ...

Has Anyone Tried The Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Sr Made By Sun Pharma Bupropion Hcl

Hi - I just got a perscription for the Sun Pharma generic version of Wellbutrin SR (Bupropion HCL SR). Has anyone had success with this one? If not which generic version have you had success with? ## Whatever generic worked for someone else may not work for you and vice versa. Learn more Wellbutrin SR details here. The only way to find out what works for you is to actually try it and see. If one generic doesn't work for you, then you can consult your pharmacist to see what else is available.

Wellbutrin - making me go crazy?

Hopefully someone sees this, I've never been on this site before. My doctor increased my Wellbutrin to 450 mg about 2 months ago. I feel like I am slowly losing it, and I never thought that maybe it could be the Wellbutrin. I'm always agitated. I'm never comfortable, never relaxed. I am doing obsessive things like washing my hands repeatedly, making sure everything in the room is perfectly neat and straight. I can't cry anymore. I seem perfectly fine when I talk to people, but my mind feels like a mess. I'm focused and I do what I need to do every day, but I feel no joy, just agitation. I always feel like I need to do something and I'm always nervous about something, even if there's nothing to be nervous about. Has anyone ever taken Wellbutrin and experienced...

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis

I've been taking the generic brand PAR of Buproion LX 300MG for over 2 years and haven't run into any problems. Walgreens switched the brand to Actavis generic this month and I feel extremely depressed. I plan on seeking medical attention from my doctor right away-- but I'd like to hear about your experiences to not feel so alone. I started taking Actavis around January 15th and I've noticed my mood has completely shifted and no longer feel like myself. PAR seemed to work well for me. Before I switched brands my depression was manageable but now it's out of control. I constantly feel angry, annoyed, and highly irritated and it scares me. Can generic brands of the same exact medication cause your mental health to decline? ## Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your reaction ...

what is the best generic brand of wellbutrin

FYI: The drug manufacturer Watson bought out Activist. Watson "made a business decision" to no longer produce the Watson generic brand of Wellbutrin and only produce the Activist version. Watson was the brand that worked for me (I've tried many) so it's unfortunate they have made this business decision. I've called the company to request they continue to manufacture the Watson version. Anyone going through the same situation may want to call Watson 1-800-272-5525. *** if anyone takes a generic that doesn't work they should notify the F.D.A. 1-855-543-3784. ## Thank you for sharing this info Trace. Ever since Actavis bought out Watson, it seems like most of their meds have all started to go down hill. I mean if they're making these kinds of business decisions ...

Adderrall Libido & ED

Ive read a lot of men are having trouble with there libido or ED on this med I am currently on 10 mg twice a day last month & I find the opposite to be true. Because of other meds ( High BP Cholesterol Bypass surgery ) and Wellbutrin being in my late 50's My libido was gone for about 2 years ago I started with Testosterone shots monthly then daily underarm which helped because my numbers were very low but didnt quite make it all the way spotty but better.

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?

My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

wellbutrin sr 150 green vs purple tablet

I was receiving from Walgreens Bupropion 150mg SR which were green tablets imprinted M U12. Best medication I have ever been prescribed because it also acted as a stimulant therefore I no longer needed to sleep during the day. But after receiving the latest refiill I noticed I was again exhausted each day and needed to sleep. Later realized Walgreens gave me different tablets...a purple tablet imprinted S on one side and 525 on the other side. Walgreens said the purple tablet was exactly the same as the green tablet and it was FDA approved. What does FDA really mean? That the ingredients, the amount of each ingredient, and the quality of each ingredient is EXACTLY the same from one manufacturer to the next? Walgreens wouldn't return my money. Said the difference in refills was marke...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy

I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...

Lexapro 10mg and Wellbutrin 150 together

has anyone taken lexapro 10mg and Wellbutrin together? I've been on lexapro for 6mon. Love it but doesn't seem to be working. Small case of anxiety and depression are coming back. Dr just put me on Wellbutrin. Afraid to take it because of the possible side effects. had none with lexapro. Just felt better within 4 days ## Hello, Melanie! How are you? Actually, it's advised that these two medications not be taken together. The Lexapro tends to increase the toxicity of the Wellbutrin, which could cause life threatening issues. Are you seeing a specialist or just a PCP? The typical side effects of Wellbutrin, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness and insomnia. ## You could be setting yourself up for a mild/medium case of Serotonin Sy...

Wellbutrin Generic by Teva vs Watson vs Activis

I was taking 150 ml of Bupropion SR by Teva for several years and it has stopped working for my depression. Has anyone been happy with the other generic forms of Wellbutrin? I am now trying one from Activis but just started it yesterday. ## Your body will get used to the dosage of any medication that you take for a long period of time and it will eventually become less effective. Thus, it's really doubtful that switching manufacturers will help. It's most likely that you need a slight higher dosage to get the same benefits as you did before from this medication. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? You can read more Wellbutrin details here. ## Please let me know how the Actavis generic is working for you. I have been taking the Watson generic for 2 years and liked it. Just n...
