Wellbutrin for amphetamine addict?

Posted by Dee on November 15, 1999, at 21:53:54

I may have to face the fact that Serzone failed and start shopping around.

In an attampt to self medicate some years ago I addicted myself to crystalmeth. Although the side effects of meth way overpowered any relief it gave me, the fact remains that it *did* relieve my anxiety and depression. After a run on speed I was able to function normally for about a month, then I had to take another run.
(I do not recommend this --- after a few years of running I was run down, mentally and physically).

As the streetphysicists explained it to me when we were getting high, speed affect dopamin and somhow makes the neurons fire all at once, out of control. Wellbutrin inhibits the dopamin reuptake (So I believe, correct me if I am wrong)

My question is, would this be a reason for me to try wellbutrin, or should I stay away from it because it might trigger the addiction-related anxiety (=compulsively overdosing, withdrawal etc.)

Any ideas?
