I am sooooo confused about all of these different kinds of meds.  My psyche gave me Buspar today and I read every thread about it on this site and I'm just plain confused.  If someone is a veteran on all of this stuff.  I'd like to know the following:
 
1) What class is Wellbutrin?
2) How does SSRI work?
3) What calss is BUSPAR? 
 
How in the world does the doc determine which one you need?  Why are their so many types?  I HATE MEDS...am constantly upset that I am someone who has to take this stuff just to do the business of living.  I look around and it seems like everyone is normal but me. 
Thanks for any input.

Hi,  A pharmacist will be able to answer these questions. Ask your pharmacist....and they don't charge.  Lesley
