I was on it but for my depression it did help that for awhile. I dont think it would hurt to try it but if u have severe anxiety and or panic attacks like me u need something else that works when u take it that can take weeks to start work

I've been taking Wellbutrin since 2008. It's the only one that kept me level headed. Antidepressants & antianxiety meds are not a "one fits all". If something doesn't seem to agree with you, tell your doc right away, so he/she can try something else for you. I had tried Lexapro before & it actually made me suicidal. But Lexapro seem to agree with lots of other people I know.

Best Answer

But do you have anxiety?

Best Answer

I did which I took Prozac/fluoxetine for, but since I no longer have anxiety attacks, I no longer need the Prozac.

Best Answer

Wow, that's fantastic!

Best Answer

I was taking a combo starting in 2010 of Wellbutrin for depression, Prozac for anxiety, & Trazodone for insomnia and for which I often had anxiety attacks at night. Over this past year, I was able to drop the Prozac & Trazodone. I only take Wellbutrin now. I'm so glad to be off Prozac for a very pleasing & satisfying reason because a side effect is that it suppresses.... ermmm.... certain end results....

I see. And Wellbutrin is supposed to boost your libido. I'd like that for myself.

Best Answer

Boost the libido it does... I also found that it suppresses cravings & appetite, which had assisted in my weight loss. But I've also made the lifestyle changes for weight loss.

Neuroticrabbit I have anxiety myself and I take alprazolam 0.5mg and it works.<br />

Best Answer

Thanks for the suggestion.

Best Answer

I would not expect Wellbutrin to be prescribed for anxiety, but only for depression. I would not be surprised if it exacerbated your anxiety.

Best Answer

That antidepressant is off label prescribed so much it is criminal.

Best Answer

I do have depression. My reasoning behind wanting to try Wellbutrin is that I took it when I was younger and that it also works for ADD. It also boosts libido for a lot of people. It's just that I didn't have an anxiety disorder back when I took it.

Best Answer

Did you ever feel anxious or pepped-up before, when you took it for ADD?

Best Answer

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll consider that.
