Schedule IV, generic available, refills are possible if the treating doctor is OK with it, etc. some insurance plans won't pay for diet pills, but it does seem to be rather inexpensive, out of pocket.

Many thanks for this advice. Brand Wellbutrin XL was pulled at one point?!? I've been on it for about a decade and never heard anything about this happening. Are you sure you aren't talking about one of its generics? If you have any articles that you can share, I'd love to check this out and find out more.
