Epileptic Seizures Under Antidepressive Drug Treatment: Systematic Review.
Antidepressive treatment is rather safe in terms of risk of seizures and also can be generally recommended in the treatment of patients with epilepsy.
Risks and Benefits of Bupropion Treatment in Schizophrenia: A Systematic Review of the Current Literature
In schizophrenic patients treated with buPropion in addition to antipsychotics, the risk for bupropion-induced psychoses seems negligible and the efficacy of a combined dopamine and norepinephrine agonist in schizophrenia is biologically plausible.
Bupropion for Depression in Schizophrenia
This case series suggests safe and effective antidepressive treatment with bupropion in patients with schizophrenic disorders, if stable antipsychotic medication and electroencephalographic-monitoring are provided.

EKG Abnormalities During Partial Seizures in Refractory Epilepsy
The frequency and character of ictal cardiac rhythm and conduction abnormalities in intractable epilepsy and cardiac arrhythmias during seizures in patients with refractory epilepsy are assessed.
Cardiac arrest due to partial epileptic seizures
The clinical distinction between cardiovascular and epileptic causes of loss of consciousness is sometimes difficult, but becomes more complicated when a primary epileptic seizure secondarily causes
A 102-center prospective study of seizure in association with bupropion.
These rates confirm earlier seizure estimates and fall within accepted parameters for antidepressant drugs, and enhances bupropion's position as a valuable alternative for the management of depression.
Fatal bupropion overdose.
A 26-year-old man who ingested 23 g bupropion, developed seizures and hypoxia, and presented in cardiac arrest, and died 4 d after supportive intensive care.
A controlled trial of sustained-release bupropion, a nicotine patch, or both for smoking cessation.
Treatment with sustained-release bupropion alone or in combination with a nicotine patch resulted in significantly higher long-term rates of smoking cessation than use of either the nicotine patch alone or placebo.
