    Hi, Is there anyone that could give me some information or experiences with Bupropion SR. My Pharmacist said it is generic for Wellbutrin which is what I am suppose to be taking.

    A few years ago I took Wellbutrin which helped but since taking the generic (Bupropion) I can't feel it working??

    Any input is appreciated.

    I don't exactly about the med you are taking, but, a few yrs ago I took Effexor and it worked for me. I went off of it and started again about 9 months ago or so, and this time it didn't do anything positive for me. I just finished my last week of 37.5mgs, but I think I will take it every other day for the next week.
    I wonder if things can work that way with other AD'S? Something to check into.

    I have tried several different AD's with no good results but Wellbutrin worked so well for me a few years back that it even helped me drop unwanted pounds.

    Does anyone know anymore info on this AD (Bupropion)?

    I was taking the Bupropion sr and then the doctor switched me to the wellbutrin xl. I don't feel like the wellbutrin xl works as good as the Bupropion it made me want to work out, watch what I ate. I think I'm going back to the Bupropion. Maybe your doctor just needs to up your dosage you can take up to 450mg a day. I take 300mg first thing in the morning. Hope this helps.

    I have been on Bupropion for a little over two years and it works great for me. I have no side effects or anything. I take 150 mg every morning :) Shelly
