Default Seratonin or dopamine antidepressants???

How would you know which chemical you are most likely lacking? And if you should take ssri's (seratonin reuptake focused) or something else like wellbutrin that helps dopamine levels? I'm really tied up with this question. can someone help me gain some clarity

I am pretty sure ssri's are for Ocd and things like that. Dopamine is more for schizophrenia.
