NO effects from generic wellbutrin. Still hope for namebrand or Aplenzin?

Hey, I'm a 24 y/o male and have dysthymia. I also have a history of alcohol and substance abuse. My mood isn't really an issue, but my lack of motivation, energy, and concentration is. I tried generic Wellbutrin, two months of Teva Budeprion SR @ 300mg/day, then two months of Global Bupropion SR @ 400mg/day. Zero effects from any of it, except possibly slightly disturbed sleep. I quit taking anything for a few months and now I am taking 150mg/day of Wellbutrin XL (it's been 3 days), and I haven't noticed anything again but am aware it can take a month or two. I don't know where, but I read someone's experience saying they had no effects from generic (read: none, NOT 'only got the side effects or bad effects') and switched to brand name and got great results. Has anyone heard or experienced this?? Or has anybody gotten effects from Aplenzin when they had none from bupropion. Thanks.

P.S. I've also taken Adderall XR with some benefit but not much, as well as Provigil which helped even less.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
