Antidepressant Recalled Nationwide


October 12, 2016

Bupropion hydrochloride extended-release (Wellbutrin XL) 150-mg tablets have been recalled by drug manufacturer Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc., as reported in the latest Enforcement Report from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Nearly 32,000 60-count bottles of the twice-daily drug are included in the Class III, nationwide recall due to “failed dissolution specifications.” Bupropion hydrochloride is an antidepressant used to treat major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder.

The ongoing, voluntary recall was initiated by Sun Pharmaceutical last month.
