I did not write my previous post clearly. What you were taking IS an SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) and can cause suicidal thoughts. My mistake was in lumping bupropion into that group. Bupropion is a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitors (NDRIs). A different drug class, but one that can still cause suicidal thoughts in some people. I apologize if I caused you any confusion. I will say, though, that it is unusual to take just one med for ADD (or other conditions). Often, two or more are prescribed, as together they work better than any one drug. The rest of my previous post stands. You need more information so you can be comfortable with what your doctor prescribes.
