>Seven days ago I went to pick up my script from the pharmacy and I was given Budeprion XL 150mg. For the past three years I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg 1 tab daily. And I have been calm, relaxed, happy, except for a occasional blue day, once in awile. Which I can deal with. The first and second day I was fine. By the third day I was so thirsty. I was anxious, couldn't sleep at nite, my mind was racing, was having these crying jags. I wanted to hide from the world. I felt I was going to explode. My memory stunk,I made a hair appt and my sister was with me. For the life of me I couldnt remember, what time it was. Me who used to worked for Dr.'s and could remember every patients name and what meds they took. My sister kept saying, what the hell is wrong with you. I felt like i was starting all over again, with being in this grey area. Which I so hated.
I take several other generic drugs for high blood pressure and thyroid and never had any other problems with.
I went online and looked up this drug and read all the negative reports written on it, and the clinical trials. I needed my Dr. to call in a new script for me. Figuring the drug company is really trying to push this drug to the masses really fast. Not thinking of the consequences that could happen.

So as I went to pick up the script today, she tell me 347.00 dollars for a sixty day supply. I look at her like your kidding me. Im not going to pay that. She hands me six pills, says to me come back on the 22 of this month and we can put it into your insurance company and they will pay most of it.
Today is the start of a new day and im back on my Wellbutrin XL and im going be back in that calm, happy, place which makes me smile and makes life so much enjoyable.

Ok, my insurance company switched me from Wellbutrin XL to the generic version without telling me. When the pharmacist told me it was over $100 dollars, I thought there was a mistake. No mistake here. Both my therapist and I have been sending letters and filling out forms, but I just recieved a final "NO" from AvMed.
> The generic version made me feel more depressed than ever with horrible mood swings and bursts of rage. I didn't want to go out or see my friends. All I wanted was to stay home with the doors closed, the lights out, and feel sorry for myself. When I did decide to meet some friends, I felt completely out of place. It was like I was seeing myself from the outside and just wanting to run. I could hardly maintain a conversation. Bottom line. There is a huge difference between brand vs generic budiprion.
