Brief Answer:
wellbutrin (bupropion).

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

In continuation to our previous conversations, if you had bad reactions to SSRIs before, the other drug which can be used is wellbutrin.

It does not have a serotonergic action. So, you might not have bad reaction to it.

You can talk to your doctor about this drug.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
