Wellbutrin: Antidepressant

Wellbutrin or Zyban (brand names for bupropion) is given to children for clinical depression or for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is used only if other drugs have failed. Not much is known about mild side effects of anyone below the age of 18, but serious side effects are known. If your child experiences these symptoms, contact your doctor or pediatrician immediately.  

1.    Worsening Depression

o    The child will become more withdrawn and not be interested in just about anything. They may have more mood swings and sleep problems as well.


o    This is usually due to an allergic reaction. Make sure the child is in an area where he can't hurt himself during the grip of a seizure and call an ambulance.


o    If the child has problems being able to stand up and walk, call the doctor. It may be all that is needed is a reduction in the dosage.


o    This persistent headache tends to be on both sides of the head and can include nausea and dizziness.

Digestive Problems

o    Some children may get diarrhea and some children may get constipation.

If you are currently taking prescription medication for your symptoms and are interested in building more health and perhaps getting off your medication by addressing the cause of your health concern, please call the office and let us discuss your options.  I will work with your medical doctor to restore your health and reduce or eliminate the need for medication.


Dr. Huntoon has a single mission:

To support as many people as possible in their quest for health and enable them to improve and maintain their health to the highest level possible, while educating them about the benefits of Chiropractic, Natural Healthcare and Holistic Living, so they in turn can teach others to support us having a healthy community.

Your Choice

Health concerns are a major source of lost happiness and lost joy in all of our lives. Finding a solution that is agreeable and enables you to get back to your life is important. Please appreciate that you always have the more invasive surgery and prescription medication available to you as a last resort. What many Traditional Medical Doctors may not share is, many times, once you begin that journey into medication and/or surgery, it alters your original body from the one that you were born with. Unfortunately, at that time, more conservative and natural treatments may no longer be viable. I encourage you to consider that before making any decisions about treatment for your health. As always I am here to help. 
Your Choice:
  • Continue doing the same thing and nothing changes or it may get worse


  • Try something different and get a different result that makes you happier and healthier.
The Choice is Yours
Please call Dr. Huntoon at 845-561-BACK (2225) to discuss your options or click on our E-Visit to do it via e-mail. 
Thank You for your consideration.
