Oranges and apples: Both antidepressants, Effexor (venlafaxine) and wellbutrin extended release are reliable and safe. But they have different mechanism of action. Different (and opposite) side effects, and adverse events. Indications are also different, and interactions. A more thorough comparison is not possible in 400 characters. Best wishes.
