He did give me info, but he also told me the generic wellbutrin would not make me gain weight It took me from 160 to 192 in a few months. he now took me off of it. A friend gained 60 lbs on G W and I researched it.... she was right... the generic vs the original was much different.
I also googled and found some have gained on ritalin, only 8% but you never know what to believe.... I just wanted to actually talk to people who have taken it...
Also this is generic ritalin (I am researching what that means now) just trying to gather as much info as possible.
