How Bupropion HCL Works
Bupropion HCL is the active ingredient found in Wellbutrin SR; it is primarily used to treat depression and in some cases it is used as an aid to quit smoking. Bupropion HCL affects the balance of brain chemicals thus treating symptoms. The typical dosage prescribed to patients is a daily dose of 150mg and do not exceed 300mg daily. Patients begin to benefit from this medication after several weeks of treatment. Your doctor may have prescribed this medication for reasons other than those listed; therefore take Buproprion HCL exactly as prescribed.
Generic Bupropion HCL vs Brand Wellbutrin SR
There are very minor differences between brand and generic Wellbutrin SR sustained-release; both medications contain the medical ingredient Bupropion HCL. Generic Wellbutrin SR or Bupropion HCL is manufactured outside of a GSK facility; this is the biggest difference between Wellbutrin SR and Bupropion HCL. Generic Bupropion HCL and Wellbutrin SR tablets are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy, chemical makeup and therapeutic use. We currently have the brand from Turkey and the generic from Canada and India. It may come from other countries around the world.

Do not take Wellbutrin SR if you are allergic to Bupropion or any other ingredients found in the medication.
