social anxiety

I have social anxiety disorder and want to take medication. However, I am worried about weight gain and sexual side effects. I have heard that wellbutrin is good with this. Is it a good method of treatment for social anxiety, though?

Re: social anxiety

Wellbutrin is supposed to have the fewest side effects. The lowest dose of any type of AD drug is the best to minimize side effects. Good luck, I never had luck with any of them, but must admit I never tried Wellbutrin. I take Xanax as needed. Love to hear if Wellbutrin works.

Re: social anxiety

if you can find an antidepressant that works for you, the sise effects are only a small price to pay for the benefits
these meds dont cause weight gain or loss
