What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Generic Wellbutrin SR® (bupropion) is a sustained-release antidepressant used to treat major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder. This medicine works by blocking the reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain, thereby helping to balance specific natural substances in the brain called neurotransmitters.
Generic Wellbutrin SR is also marketed as: Wellbutrin, bupropion hydrochloride, Budeprion SR, Budeprion XL, Aplenzin, Zyban and Buproban
* Wellbutrin SR® is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline
