Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial of Bupropion for Cancer-Related Fatigue.
This phase III trial studies how well bupropion works in reducing cancer related fatigue in stage I-III breast cancer survivors. Bupropion is a drug that is used to treat depression, as well as to help people quit smoking. Cancer and its treatment can cause fatigue. Giving bupropion may improve cancer related fatigue in breast cancer survivors.
