Default What's a good Wellbutrin generic?

I've been taking 75 mg from Sandoz, but it's now on indefinite backorder and I can't even find the name-brand for that dose being sold anywhere.

I've tried Mylan when I was still taking 100 mg SR, and it was just ineffective. I was on Sandoz, tried Mylan for a few days (same dose), and it quickly brought the depression back. So I'd rather not try that manufacturer again.

Does anyone have any experience with bupropion generics? There are other manufacturers available for the 75 mg dose, but I want to choose something that people have had good experiences with. What generic are you taking, and is it working well?

I'd appreciate any input you guys have. I'm new to taking meds and this process has been pretty overwhelming!

I take MFG-Lupin. It has worked fine for me for over two years. All generics should have the same amount of active ingredant. The fillers are different though.

Thanks! I've never heard of this manufacturer. Is it common? Which pharmacy do you use? I've been using Walgreens. I know each has a different distributor and therefore has different generics available.

I know that they all should be the same, but my experience made me think otherwise (plus what I've read by others online). I noticed a significant difference between Mylan and Sandoz.
