I have been on 150 mg for 6 months and October has been really hard.I saw my doctor a week ago and she recommended increasing to 400mg per day.

I have no insurance and with a discount I have been paying 24.00 for a 1 month prescription, but my pharmacy says that this new script will cost 128.00

( I asked why and was told it is very uncommon)

Anyone else on this dose? or have been on this dose

(PS anyone have any tips on discounts please send them my way...have not fille prescription yet as i still have a month of the 150 mg)

My doctor started me out on 150mgs and increase it over several months until I was up to 450XL for several months until my depression lifted and I was stabilized. Later doc took it down to 300XL which I'm taking now. The 300XL has been a therapuetic dosage for me.

There are generics like buproprion if you can't pay for the brand, so discuss some options with your doctor. You might want to ask your doctor for samples as well as discount coupons. I'm no longer on Ambiem but when I first started it three years ago, my psychiatrist gave me a coupon card that saved me an additional 20% off of my co-payment. You can also contact the maker and ask about discounts.

Are you in the U.S.? There are a lot of prescription discount cards out (such as the free City of Los Angeles one I found one day at the library which helped me with my Wellbutrin refills when I first moved here). I've also noticed some free ones coming in the mail along with Super market weekly ads and some pharmacies have their own which aren't free but the discount you get might be worth the monthly fee.

You might want to consider online pharmacies from Canada or India. There are a lot of options for cheap generic versions out there. I have ordered for years and saved a lot. I don't think it is proper to mention my preferred pharmacy in public but I think it is ok to mention that the generic brand I order online is from Sun Pharma. Oh, and I would definitely think twice about buying the expensive XL version over the SR version. I think the XL version was launched as a patent extension trick and nothing else.

Btw:

Zyban = 150mg Bupropion = 150mg Wellbutrin. Zyban is not XL or SR version but the old version of Wellbutrin and is sold as a hair loss medication.

Check your local Costco. You don't have to be a member for the pharmacy and I found that Bupropion was really cheap relative to other places I looked (and easy).

I take 200mg, 2x a day and I forgot what I paid, but 150mg SR is $0.47 a pill. (The 100mg pills are $0.54 a pill)

You can punch it in on their site.
