Hi d/r.

> i can't think how this would happen with bupropion,

Why would you deem bupropion any less capable of producing a withdrawal rebound improvement as is seen with other antidepressants, particularly the tricyclics?

> but there is the possibility that the immediate effects were negative

I didn't feel immediately better or worse with bupropion. Its negative effects on my mood emerged before two weeks had expired, and persisted for the entire time I took it. Much of the relief I experienced upon discontinuation I attribute to a withdrawal rebound improvement. I repeated this experiment several time - mostly out of desperation.

Regarding Parnate and watching for a spontaneous hypertensive crisis early in therapy, I may not have used the word "screen" properly. I was thinking that one could use a blood pressure measuring device and perhaps beware of hypertensive symptoms, although hypertension is often asymptomatic. Off the top of my head, I don't know if one could challenge the patient with a biological to determine sensitivity to Parnate.
