> Wellbutrin is the brand, Bupropprion is the generic, so what is Budeprion, the generic of the generic? It's mind boggling and the impact of all of this is more patients who have been stabalized being destabalized. A real health care crisis if you ask me.
Budeprion is one generic company's "brand name" for the generic buproprion--the prescription label will always include both the "name" given by any company, generic or not, as well as the generic (chemical) name. The same is true of Budeprion, but it's still just another generic.
There was a "generics scare" widely reported in the press several years ago. Turned out after the FDA investigated, the generics were found to be just fine.
