> > But I still don't understand the difference between the two. Aren't they the same medication. Or is one the namebrand and the other generic.<
> One is SLOW RELEASE (SR) and one is EXTENDED RELEASE (XL). The SR needs to be taken twice a day, while the XL requires only once-a-day dosing. My concern is in the release action. Perhaps different ingredients are used to formulate each version. Maybe one ingredient/chemical causes more side effects than the other. So I'm wondering of those formerly on SR who are now on XL found XL better or worse, and why?

i have only taken the XL for one day - and i felt anxious the next - very panicky - i am on it for anxiety / panic. from what i have read people gain more weight and have more SEs on the SR - but you can get the SR in a lower dose...and you can cut the SR but not the XL. i wish they made the XL in less than 150 mg b.c i too am soooo sensitive to drugs and felt nuts yesterday (i took my the night before) so i skipped it last night.
