I'll be sure to keep you posted. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is also sold as Zyban here in the U.S. for people who are trying to quit smoking. As far as I know they are the exact same drug. The only difference is that Wellbutrin is sold in an extended release SR version and a once a day XL version. I'll discuss with my doc next week which one would be the best choice for me to start with. You might want to check out this site: www.preskorn.com That guy really knows his medications. Sometimes the regular (non-timed release) versions are better because you can fine tune your dose by cutting them in half. That's something you should never ever do with an SR or XL pill.

I really wish I had learned more about amino acids and their role in neurotransmitter synthesis a long time ago. Maybe I could have avoided getting so burned out. But you live and learn. I plan on continuing with the tyrosine even after I start the Wellbutrin. Just to be sure there's enough raw material for my brain to work with. Unless I find out that it interferes with the medication. Which I highly doubt because the medication is working at the NE and DA reuptake pumps well beyond the point at which tyrosine is synthesized into L-dopa. And don't forget those co-factors, especially Vit. B6. As a matter of fact all the B vitamins are important as well as Vit. C.

By the way feel free to call me franco, franc, fn or whatever's easiest for you to type :-)
