Is Bupropion an aid to sleep?
Bupropion (aka - wellbutrin) is generally prescribed to treat
depression, bipolar disease, and attention deficit disorder. It was
recently approved by the FDA to assist in the cessation of smoking.
Though one of its side-effects is drowsiness, this medication is
not prescribed for insomnia. Another side-effect, due to
bupropion's upward effect on norepinephrine (noradrenaline), can be
wakefulness. The actual effect varies between individuals.
