I too started out taking Wellbutrin XL and my pharmacy (Walgreens) automatically switched me to Budiprion XL when it came out. It was an oval yellow pill. After a few weeks I didn't feel that it was working and thought it was the drug itself and had nothing to do with it being generic. I recently moved and switched pharmacies to use one that is closer to my new house. This pharmacy, which is in a grocery store, does not buy Budiprion, but instead buys a different generic which is just listed as the the original generic name of Bupropion. This pill is the same size and shape as Wellbutrin, only it is white instead of purple like the 300mg Wellbutrin XL. This generic works as well for me as the brand name, but Budiprion did not work for me.
