I trust you’re suicidal or having problems getting out of bed, if not, no doctor has any business prescribing you with powerful mind altering drugs.

Unless they’re maximising profits, that is.
Wellbutrin is a pretty mild antidepressant and is actually an atypical antidepressant which tend to be much much safer and more based than SSRIs, the TCAs in particular are goated. Wellbutrin even has use as a smoking cessation aid.

OP don't listen to anyone else who knows nothing about psychopharmacology. Take it for a few weeks and just pay attention to how you feel. If you react positively, keep taking it, if not, stop. It's pretty simple. It shouldn't even take that long to notice how its effecting you, the idea of a drug needing to "build in your system" before you can feel it is mostly BS, most drugs can reach steady state peak plasma concentrations in like a week anyway.

All that said depending on your symptoms and age, TRT ain't a bad option either.

I clocked in at 595 a couple months back. Never checked free T, though. My sleep was sh1t, my diet was ok, no exercise of any kind and I wasn’t getting laid. I’m trying to atleast get to 700s with some disciplined exercise, better diet, pvssy acquisition and good sleep. I have noticed a positive phsycological surge of whatever it was when I was having sex regularly with a beautiful chick. My T levels seem to stagnate a bit when I’m not getting pvssy. There may be some correlation to that.
I will probably hop on T when im 40.

I been taking low dose naltrexone for some mental hurdles I got. Low dose naltrexone acts to subtly increase the production of endorphins, leading to a boost in overall well-being (mood) while also initiating a cascade of anti-inflammatory responses. It modulates your immune system. LDN is also proposed to work for depression. My sleep is much better since I started taking it every night. I wake up refreshed.

Always listen to medical advice. Have you tried marijuana? If it's legal in Brazil, it may be worth a shot. Sativa strains are said to be the best to calm anxiety and depression. Very well tolerated, but always check with your doctor FIRST before trying anything. As always, this is not medical advise, just something I would try if it was me and I had my doctors FULL SUPPORT.
I thought the indica strains were the more calming ones?

I wouldn’t recommend smoking ganja. It will just flat out dump him in an insidious depressive spiral and will be extremely difficult for him to claw out from. Marijuana exacerbates depression and anxiety in prone individuals especially with these modern hard sprayed strains. I come from the chronic strains of the early 2ks (og kush, grand daddy purps, train wreck, sour diesel, ak-47, northern lights, purple haze, LA confidential, blueberry, skunk, chocolate thai, white widow, cat piss, afghani kush etc etc). I am beyond smoked out. Now I can’t handle all this new smoke.
Dude needs to exercise get the blood flowing to the brain, sleep 7-8 hours tops and eat homemade cooked meals/h2o. If that doesn’t hack it then either check T levels or go to cognitive behavioral therapy/meds.

Agreed. Smoking pot for depression or anxiety is a total clown move. You cannot be a serious person with a weed habit. It's only acceptable for people who already have their **** together and are highly disciplined. If you were smoking those old Js from the 60s and 70s that were 1% THC that's fine but modern strains are absolute insanity let alone all the concentrates and stuff like dabs, those people are beyond redemption.

“It's only acceptable for people who already have their **** together and are highly disciplined.”

One sentence that falls with the heft of absolute and irrefutable truth. Every single run of time where I have had steady streams of passive income (fvck you money) , bills up to date, no debt, mental stability, and even better if I have a reliable sane chick by my side in bed then those were the moments where I had no issue chiefing it especially at night because I knew the house was secured. It’s that flow state of peaceful calmness of having your life in order with out the black dreaded anxiety of the future that lets you savor a deep rip to the dome during the chill breeze and stillness of the night. But when I have been dealing with harsh mental hurdles, alone, no pvssy, and just not improving grey areas of my life then weed just brings those things to surface even more and I’m just hyper-aware of everything around that makes me unhappy. Like you said, weed is only for when you have tied up loose ends.

Right now, I’m ok without consuming. It’s been a year clean. It’s self-control and it’s a super power.
