It is an antidepressant unlike all those in the SSRI family. It is known to release dopamine in someone, scientists are still undecided about how it actually works. Freaky. It also is taken as a "street" drug - taken at large doses, it creates a generous amount of pleasing side effects like living in a state of euphoria, and living inside one's own brain (like echos in someone's head). All senses are hightened like X or MJ, but there is a little more control. Hallucinations occur at an incredibly large dose. Seizures are possible at that level of dosage as well.
I took my wellbutrin today so I can live life floating along, pretty oblivious to the outside world.
