  BUPROPRION What is Bupropion?

Bupropion medication has been indicated for the treatment of a number of medical conditions including depression, smoke cessation, sexual dysfunction, anxiety disorder and obesity. It is available under a variety of brand names including Wellbutrin (including Wellbutrin SR and Wellbutrin XL) and Zyban. Bupropion works by increasing certain types of activity in the brain.

Notable fact: In 2006 Bupropion was the fourth most prescribed antidepressant on the U.S. retail market.

Wellbutrin SR is approved for the treatment of depression in adults. It is the Bupropion formulation developed for twice daily dosing (sustained release). SEE MORE ABOUT BUPROPION / WELLBUTRIN SR

Wellbutrin XL (bupropion HCl extended-release tablets) is the Bupropion formulation developed for once-daily dosing. Wellbutrin XL is typically used to treat adults with a certain type of depression called major depressive disorder, and for the prevention of autumn-winter seasonal depression (seasonal affective disorder).

Zyban is marketed by Glaxo-Wellcome, and has been used, very successfully, to treat nicotine addiction directly. Unlike other anti-smoking agents which supply an alternative source of nicotine other than cigarettes, Zyban works at the neurological level, reducing the craving for nicotine in any form.
