In brief: If you have

atypical depressive disorder - wellbutrin (bupropion) may be helpful in this respect.
The decision of best medication choice should be made mindfully with your psychiatrist's input.

In brief: Noradrenergic

Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Effexor, (venlafaxine) Nortryptiline.
The problem is that you can't know which one is least likely to cause it in YOU.
