In brief: Mostly
Wellbutrin (bupropion) interferes with reuptake of dopamine&norepinephrine(noradrenaline)in the central nervous system, thereby leaving these neurotransmitters to sit longer&stronger in the synapse between communicating brain cells, which enhances dopamine&adrenaline activity at the cellular level.
That can treat depression, feed pleasure to help sex&bypass tobacco, improve adhd&cognition, lower weight, etc.
