Answer

Antianxiety Agent

A modest improvement in ataxia has been observed in a few small clinical trials. One study showed no benefits. Another study showed benefits that were not sustained beyond 3 months.

Bupropion (Wellbutrin, Zyban)

Bupropion inhibits neuronal dopamine reuptake in addition to being a weak blocker of serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake.
