NDRIs are a newer class of antidepressants that work on a brain chemical called dopamine. And example of this drug is bupropion (Wellbutrin). Side effects are usually mild, and include upset stomach, headache, sleep problems, tremor, and anxiety. Wellbutrin may be less likely to cause sexual side effects or weight gain than other antidepressants.
