Generic Wellbutrin

MSN health recently published an article discussing Budeprion XL (generic Wellbutrin) and the possible problems/side effects of it and multiple other generic drugs. I found a lot of the information to be very disturbing and some of the symptoms to be eerily similar for my husband and myself, who have both been on Budeprion. Bad Bargain: The Dangers of Generic Drugs is a must read in my opinion because so many of us do use the generic drugs because they're cheaper and many insurance companies mandate it. My doctor at one time prescribed Glucophage for me for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and I was unable to take it due to the severe GI problems that it caused me. When I notified my physician, she stated that she wanted me off the generic Metformin and wanted me to take the name brand Glucophage. Kinda make you scratch your head and go, "Hmmmmm...".
