Wellbutrin (bupropion) for mood: I'm sorry to hear you've been struggling more with depression. It's great that you've already let your doc know that your condition has changed. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is an antidepressant that works primarily on a neurotransmitter that isnt the main target of your other meds -- so it is a logical choice and I'm hopeful it helps! Most importantly, keep working with your doc until you do improve :)
