Who Else Needs To Know: Is Bupropion Gluten Free?

Oct 9, 2007
Celieac disease, or an inability to digest the protein gluten, found in grain food products, even wheat flour, is a growing problem that affects millions of Americans and others worldwide. As you can see, people with this condition are not free to eat whatever they want.

Before you put anything into your mouth, you need to ask the question, "Is this gluten free?" Beer has gluten. Pastas have gluten (yes, that includes pizza). Gravy has gluten. Pet food even has gluten (for the really desperate).

But did you know that medications, such as bupropion, can also contain gluten? If you are prescribed the antidepressant you have to ask, "Is bubropion gluten free?"

Is bupropion gluten free? Yes! One of the reasons there are so many antidepressants on the market is that people aren't alike. The millions of Celiacs around the world and their purchasing power is why gluten is not in bubropion.

The brand names of the generic bupropion includes Wellbutrin, Budaprion and Zyban. Always know the active generic name of the ingredient for any medicine you take. So, if you have been thinking, "Is my Zyban gluten free?" It is the same as "Is bupropion gluten free?"

Why Take Bupropion

It's not for everyone, even though it passes the question "Is bupropion gluten free?" This powerful antidepressant came out in 1986 and reacts on people differently. Some people get wired. Some people turn into zombies. Others thrive on it. Depression is a life threatening illness that needs immediate medical attention.

Depression is also a symptom of Celiac disease. Your depression may or may not be a direct result of your Celiac Disease. So your doctor will most likely have you take medications for depression, for any malnutrition, and have your diet changed.

If you dislike medication or suffer from its side effects than there are also many natural alternatives to alleviating depression, such as a healthy, organic diet, proper exercise, and meditation. The manager of your local health food store should be able to help you.

In modern times, bupropion is not just used for depression. It is also used for Attention deficit/ hyperactive disorder in children, as well as counteracting some of the harsher side effects other prescription medications.

It is also well-known as an anti-seizure medication that can sometimes be prescribed for quiting smoking and for those with sexual problems.

Read the instructions carefully. Tell your doctor any and all of the medications, vitamins and herbal supplements you take to avoid incredibly bad interactions with bupropion. And never take it with beer, even gluten-free beer.
