No, bupropion (Wellbutrin or Zyban) is a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor and shouldn't be taken with an MAO inhibitor, or 14 days after one has stopped taking an MAO inhibitor. Doing so would put one at a greatly increased risk of serious side effects such as seizures heart problems. Not a good idea :)

What neurotransmitter does Prozac affect?

Prozac (fluoxetine) is an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor). It targets reuptake channels for the neurotransmitter serotonin, preventing serotonin from reentering the presynaptic neurons to be removed from the synaptic cleft, thus forcing an accumulation of serotonin and repeated triggering of the serotonin "signal" in the postsynaptic neurons.

Is Lexapro a Mao inhibitor?

No - Lamotrigine (Brand name Lamictal) is in a class of mood stabilizers. It's also used for epilepsy treatment. It has no MAO inhibitor effect. Lamotrigine has been shown to be a reversible inhibitor of MAO-A (Ki=15 uM) and MAO-B (Ki = 18 uM). MAO inhibition is possible at doses of 100-200mg/day and this could be a mechanism for the serotonin increases seen with lamotrigine treatment. The binding to the enzyme seems to be very reversible, that is, other MAO substrates can readily displace it. To the best of my knowledge, it lacks any clinically relevant interactions that are normally seen with MAOIs.
