Is it possible for hot flashes to go away with taking only 150 mg of bupropion sr. I know from what I read it can cause them, but I already have them pretty severe, and it seems better is this possible?
Wellbutrin (Bupropion) can best be described as an atypical anti-depressant. And it is a stimulant as well. It works on the Dopamine system, unlike other anti-depressants, which primarily work on the Nor-epinephrine and/or Serotonin systems. That's why the word, 'atypical'. Dopamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter (a stimulant).
Bupropion does help with mild to moderate levels of anxiety, but it is not known to more beneficial than the typical anti-depressants when the anxiety is severe.
