Help me identify this pill


Recommended Posts

Since I don't trust the pharmacy to give me the right pills, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what kind of Wellbutrin this is.  The bottle says it is Bupropion 100mg, manufacturer Teva.  I entered the number on the pill, 93-290 and it said Bupropion 100mg, pink, convex pill, film coated tablet, manufacturer Caremark.  Does "film coated" make it sustained release?  Or did they give me the immediate release?

i believe that if the pill is the namebrand 'wellbutrin' it will say 'wellbutrin 100' on it. if it says '93 290' it is a generic bupropion hcl 100 mg tablet.

and i believe you have the non-extended release tablets. the extended-release tablets from teva should have a 'G' on one side and '2442' on the other side and should be yellow in colour.

the non-extended release have '93 290' printed in a crude circle around the pills. and the pills are pink.

here's where i got the info: http://www.tevapharmusa.com/default.aspx?pageid=27

hope that helps,

also caremark is a provider for prescription medication...not a manufacturer of meds.      my insurance thru my employer uses caremark for RX benefits.

There are several websites you can use to clearly identify pills.

These are the ones I use -- this info is also pinned on the "cocktail" board:

When you get a new med, or refill a med and the little pills are different, it's a good idea to check that the pills are what they're supposed to be. These sites will give you an image of what the pill should look like, and also identify an unknown pill by shape/color/imprint.
