I have no idea about wellbutrin but it stopped my insane anxiety and bad depression, just too many side effects for me. So I have no understanding of how the emsam will or will not help me. All I can do is hope that it works as well as wellbutrin did as I only have one side effect so far which is agitation and that is better than it was two days ago. My doc is very experienced with maoi's and he thinks emsam will help people with some forms of depression and anxiety, it is just a matter of if you are one of the ones it will help and the only way to find out is to try.

> I would not compare wellbutrin to emsam. For starters, Wellbutrin's effects on dopamine seem insufficiant to explain its antidepressant effects. Wellbutrin seems to work more with the noradrenergic system, it has only minimal effects on the dopamine transporter.
> I would not equate a wellbutrin failure to an ensam failure, or anxiety on wellbutrin to anxiety on ensam.
