Neurotransmitters are substances in the brain that are essentially messengers. They carry messages to and from the various nerve cells within the brain. Different neurotransmitters carry different messages. For instance, dopamine and norepinephrine are involved in the regulation of moods.

One of the main purposes of Bupron SR is to treat depression in individuals. It may be also used to treat other mood disorders or the depressive symptoms of other conditions.
