Teachings are incorrect.
By Nicholas C. on 16. May 2018 for Questions – Antidepressants

Bupropion is a dopamine reuptake inhibitor with some seetotenegic activity. It is also one of the most potent CYP2D6 inhibitors of the antidepressants. The previous antidepressant review lecture also had a mistake in which it was stated that “venlafaxine is used for smoking cessation” which is incorrect

pretty helpful

There are some mistakes. SERT is not a serotonin receptor. And Bupropion is not a SERT inhibitor.
