In 2007, there were complaints from patients who had been taking the 300 mg dose of an extended-release version of the popular antidepressant, Wellbutrin XL 300, and had recently switched to the generic equivalent, Budeprion XL 300, made by US-based Impax Pharmaceuticals and marketed by the Israeli generic company Teva.
However, public interest in the bioequivalence of branded and generic versions of 300 mg ER bupropion led the FDA to revisit this issue and to perform studies in 24 healthy adult volunteers comparing the 300 mg dose of generic Budeprion XL to branded bupropion XL.
The affected product is Budeprion XL 300 mg, which is manufactured by Impax Laboratories and marketed by Teva Pharmaceuticals USA.
The affected product is Budeprion XL 300 mg, manufactured by Impax Laboratories and marketed by Teva Pharmaceuticals USA--one of the five generic versions of Wellbutrin XL 300-mg tablets that have been approved by the FDA.
History revealed that the patient was unresponsive to escitalopram and budeprion XL. A switch to nortrlptyline (Pamelor) did not significantly improve symptoms.
