Advice & Tips: Although the side effect burden for me was unpleasant, I would strongly encourage keeping an open mind about bupropion. For many people, its side effect profile is much less difficult than some other antidepressants. It is available as a generic (which is a cost savings), and works well for many.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
