Wellbutrin Thing - is it also a painkiller?

Well, I doubt it but if you cut your pill into half you laso might have noticed the numbing effect on the tongue. It got me thinking: are antidepressants (emotional 'painkillers') and real painkillers somehow related? This rather far-fetched theory may be supported by the recent finding that the pain center and the 'rejection center' in the brain are very close. If that is the case, how about popping a Tylenol after you go through some painful experience of rejection? Perhaps if the initial feeling of pain is toned down by a painkiller, the memory of the event will also be less painful and might cause less aggrevation. Dr Bob and others, what do you think?
