  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia))
  • Side effects
    Moderate (tremor in hands)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
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
