Why does Wellbutrin cause rage/irritability?

Posted by Joe Schmoe on November 16, 2010, at 6:58:47

I have read Wellbutrin raises both dopamine and norepinephrine activity.

I am just curious which of those is responsible for the common rage/irritability/short temper effects, or whether it is some combination of both.

Kind of an academic question for me since it appears pure dopamine reuptake inhibitors are not legal here in the U.S. :(

Or are they? I have read that Europe has some pure dopamine AD agents not available here, but on the other hand, aren't stimulants basically dopamine activity increasers?

As someone with anxiety I have never even considered stimulants as a treatment for depression.
