Urgent Please wrong meds

My docter prescribed wellbutrin xl 300mg. On the tablets is printed gs5yz. It came in a small plastic bottle. When I went to get my next batch the pharmacist dispensed a blister pack and on the back is printed wellbutrin SR and on the tablet is printed gxch7. I don’ t know what the mg is. I searched the web and it is said that the wellbutrin SR only goes up to 200mg. Please help. I believe he dispensed the wrong meds because he didn’ t have the correct ones. I can not take the chance of taking the wrong dosage. I just became stable. It is hell to get to this point. Please help urgently.

Hi Heidi

In South Africa Wellbutrin is available as SR 150 mg(60 per pack) and XL (extended release tablets) 150mg and 300mg (packs of 30)

“GS5YZ” is the XL 300 mg tab, whilst "GX CH7" the SR 150 mg - Two of the last one would be similar as the first.
