Default Something similar to bupropion?

Does anyone know of another antidepressant that has the same metabolic effects as bupropion?

another antidepressant? nothing on the market. dunno what might be coming down the pike though.
1. Ketosis doesn't matter.
2. Strength training+Protein+DHA/EPA+veggies+vitamins&minerals DOES.
3. Search BEFORE you ask questions.
4. Use google as well - Add "". Google can find those short strings of letters.
5. You are not a rodent so follow up with pubmed ( use "+human" "-rat" "-mouse" modifiers
6. Check the STICKY threads.
7. use google to find all my posts.
8. Supplement evidence
9. Private message are cheerfully ignored.

Don't know about metabolic effects.

It is a norepineprhine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor.

Looked for alternates because I can't take it...anaphylatic reaction.

Modafinil looked like a good possibility but I was unable to get a prescription for it (ADD) and I tried my GP and a psych. I was told that they will only prescribe it for sleep apnea and for elderly patients with daytime somnolence.

I've had a sleep study and do have sleep issues, but I was diagnosed with periodic limb movement, not sleep apnea so I was told no go.

I was given Adderall instead which is annoying and a little bit funny since Modafinil was denied supposedly because of addiction issues.

ETA: Not my addiction issues...just potential for addiction/abuse in general. My addiction issues fall into stuff like coffee, surfing the internet and sometimes a little impulsive shopping.

Check out adrafinil if you're interested in modafinil but can't get a script. The liver converts adrafinil to modafinil, so it essentially acts the same way (you need a higher dose). Adrafinil is not scheduled, nordoes it require a perscription. In the US, at least, you can 100% legally buy it.

Weird I felt like adrafinil didn't do anything for me for alertness (it's intended use) but I did find it quite suppressive on my appetite. Then again, usually only took it around finals so could have something to do with forgetting to eat/running on coffee and 3 hours of sleep.

I think nicotine would provide similar effects.
