Discussions that mention bupropion

Depression board


Hi Erin,

I've no experience of Wellbutrin as it's unavailable to me, and as yet I haven't tried 5-HTP. Nonetheless I thought I'd do a little research into combining the two.

Wellbutrin does affect serotonin a little, but you're right that it is mainly invloved with dopamine and noradrenalin. By doing a search on 5-HTP and bupropion (Wellbutrin's generic name) I found the following:
[QUOTE]Anxiety, confusion, or other serious side effects may occur if 5-HTP is taken with bupropion. Check with your doctor before combining.

Hope that's of some use to you.

Best,
Charme
