In reply to Budeprion (Generic) vs. Wellbutrin, posted by Daniel2000 on September 30, 2004, at 7:41:28
I just received my 3-month supply of what I thought was going to be my Wellbutrin renewal, and just like many of you thought they accidently sent me the wrong med since #1) it wasn't labeled as Wellbutrin (or Bupropion) and #2) it was twice the size of Wellbutrin. Obviously the Budeprion has some sort of unknown fillers in it to make the tablet size so much larger. So like all good untrusting-of-insurance-companies-having-my-best-interest-at-heart folk these days I did some research, found this site amongst others, and read about al sorts of negative experiences using this generic. My brain chemicals are a bit too precious to me to screw around with, so I will call my Dr tomorrow to have her specify no generic substitution for Wellbutrin. I am hoping my mail order will be received in time before my remaining Wellbutrin runs out. Now I wonder what I should do with this unused 3-month supply of budeprion? Maybe used some Elmer's glue and see if I can tiny log cabins out of them!
