Were you looking for information about Bupropion? Buproprion is a common misspelling of bupropion.
A healthcare provider may prescribe bupropion hydrochloride (Wellbutrin®) to treat the symptoms of depression, which can be caused when certain chemicals in the brain become unbalanced. The medication works by blocking the reuptake of these chemicals (norepinephrine and dopamine).
The medication comes in a tablet form that is taken two to four times a day. Because bupropion can interact with certain other medications, it is important to tell your healthcare provider (prior to taking bupropion) about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
Most people tolerate the drug well. When side effects do occur, they are generally minor and can be treated easily. In clinical studies, the most common side effects of bupropion included agitation, weight loss, dry mouth, and constipation.
