I was listening to "The People's Pharmacy" on NPR a couple of weeks ago. They had a person on from the FDA as part of their show. They asked her a question about the generic form of Wellbutrin XL 300mg tabs. It seems that they have been getting complaints from listeners that their medication "stopped working". They looked into it and it seems that the Generic form of this drug desolves at a much quicker rate than the name brand medication. So what is happening is that you're getting a burst of medication within the first 4 hours and then barely any. I've been a Wellbutrin uses for a while. What I noticed is that my pharmacy changed companies that they get their supplies from. This meant a change in generic producers. I had been wondering why everything seemed a little more difficult, looked a little more gray and why I didn't seem to be handling things well. Interestingly, My mood change happened in conjunction with the change in drug companies. I am now taking the name brand 150mg tabs and taking two of them to make up the 300mg. I can tell the difference. I don't know if this information aplies to anyone else, but if it can help just one person, it will be worth the time in making people aware of this situation.
