In brief: Not sure of question

Bupropion is used to treat depression & nicotine dependence.
Works by increasing norepinephrine & dopamine. Because it is activating it is useful for patients with lethargic depression. Bupropion is not associated with weight gain or sexual problems. Overdoses are associated with an increased risk of seizures, changes in heart rate, fever, and breathing. Overdoses may cause coma & death.
