We present the case of a woman who requested psychiatric evaluation because she had been taking pemoline for six months at a dose between 100-150 mg/day, and was finding it difficult to discontinue taking this substance. Initiation of 300 mg/day of bupropion solved the patient's dependence problem. We propose using antidepressants such as bupropion for the treatment of addictive behaviors due to central nervous system stimulants.
