    i have been taking the generic form 150 b.i.d.. for over a year and recently ran out,called doc for refill and it took 6 days for an office call to pharmacy partly due to a holiday weekend. Long story short: On or about the 4th day it occurred to me that many of my symptoms seemed to have lessened markedly and i would also say that i never personally thought the drug was helping me.

    While in the military, I was able to take Welbutrin (brand name) for my depression. Once I left the military, my civilian insurance companies would not pay for the brand name, but only gave generics. I have this weird feeling in my ear now; like it needs to pop like on an airplane.
