What is the medication sold as Generic Wellbutrin?
The brand of the medication Wellbutrin appeared on the U.S. market in 1985 when the active substance Bupropion was approved in the country. However, it was discovered much earlier, in 1969. Therefore, it is sold and manufactured all over the world mostly under the name Bupropion or other non-branded names. These medications are commonly referred to as Generics of Wellbutrin by the people who live in the countries where this brand name is mostly spread. But in fact, the generics are absolutely identical to this medication and are no way inferior yet cheaper because of their non-branded status.
The term “generic medication” was invented and coined by the World Health Organization that promotes the sharing of the formulas of the newest medications with other manufacturers in order to satisfy the world’s demand for the most effective preparations and make them affordable. The generics start to be produced either when the patent of the original developer expires or the producer of the medication is obliged to give out the formula to other manufacturers under certain conditions if the medication is considered to greatly influence the current treatment methods.
Bupropion is an agent acting through the inhibition of norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake thus rendering antidepressive effect. The mechanism of action is different from the effect of tricyclic antidepressants and serotonin reuptake inhibitors which makes it feasible to use Bupropion in people who have contraindications for the antidepressants from other classes use.
When you look for the medication online, you can buy Generic Wellbutrin under a variety of registered names. All you need to get the right medication is look for its active substance that should be always written on the package and instruction and is called Bupropion.
Why is Generic Bupropion so much cheaper than the brand-name pills?
First of all, if you live in the U.S. or in the UK, you should know that all medications without exception are more expensive there than they are in other countries. This also applies to generic medicines. Moreover, the brands that operate in those markets invest millions into the promotion of their medications to make people believe that they are the best hence the high price.
The low price of the generic we sell doesn’t indicate that it's of poorer quality or is different from the branded medicine. The main markets for the makers of generics are developing countries where it is unreasonable to establish such high prices as in the developed countries because people would be unable to purchase their products. Nevertheless, all of the generic medicines are strictly tested for compliance to the original formula, quality of the ingredients, and so on. So if your therapist tells you to buy Wellbutrin, you can without any hesitation purchase a generic version instead from the online drugstore situated abroad to save your money.
