Re: Dopamine? for Elizabeth

Hi MAOI monster :-),

Well, from my understanding, I think that Wellbutrin, if it does affect dopamine,
inhibits the reuptake of dopamine (as well as noradrenaline), while MAOIs increase the
general availability of dopamine in the brain, and/or decrease its degradation by MAO.
So, different mechanisms could be at work.

For me, Wellbutrin made cigarettes taste yucky, so I cut down, but that effect
didn't last more than a month. Nardil and Parnate didn't affect my ciggie smoking at all,
as far as I recall.
