I'm bipolar. Wellbutrin practically made me
psychotic. I felt like I had dopamine coming out
of my ears. If I didn't know it I would have had
an amphetamine overdose.

Could you please site a reference to your
concern regarding wellbutrin, I would like to
read it, I often see it quoted.


> My pdoc has also recommended wellbutrin for my social phobia/apathy. I am also on neurontin for mild anxiety. He thinks I need more dopamine. He says that is why I smoke cigarettes. I read wellbutrin actually decreases the dopamine and that is why it has a low incidence of inducing mania.
> Does anyone know whether wellbutrin helped with dopamine or not?
