Popular antidepressant pulled

Posted: Updated:

A popular antidepressant is being taken off the market. It's Budeprion XL 300, the generic version of Wellbutrin.

The FDA urged the maker of Budeprion to pull the drug after testing showed it releases its key ingredient faster than Wellbutrin.

Hundreds of patients complained Budeprion XL 300 did not work or caused side effects like headaches, anxiety and insomnia.
