Tried ssri/xanax for depression/anxiety, bad reactions. I heard wellbutrin (bupropion) works on different brain chemicals than ssri's. Can wellbutrin (bupropion) help?

Wellbutrin (bupropion) Wellbutrin does work on different neurotransmitters than SSRI's - specifically norepinephrine and dopamine. That said, you mentioned using Xanax (alprazolam) in the past - and Wellbutrin does have an "activating" effect for many people. So, it's probably not the best option for you. I'd suggest seeing a psychiatrist to talk over all of the options available (sometimes dosing is the key). Good luck! Read more...
