Namaste,

Wellbutrin is an antidepressant medication.

Wellbutrin is used to treat major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder. At least one brand of bupropion (Zyban) is used to help people stop smoking by reducing cravings and other withdrawal effects.

Ativan is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peens). It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety.

Ativan is used to treat anxiety disorders.

Both are good medications, but as with all medications different people react differently to each medication therefore what might work for one individual may not work for another.

If your doctor has prescribed these medications to treat major depression and anxiety it's a good place to start, although, as I said, you may need to do some "trial and error" to find the correct medication(s) that work best for you and your condition(s).

Michael
