Re: wellbutrin for anxiety
I am so glad to have read this post. I was on Wellbutrin once, but I was on a combo with Celexa and then Lexapro (major weight gain from Lexapro). Then I ran out of insurance, but the panic attacks were gone...and the depression went away once I lost the weight. But now the pa's are back bigtime, and I've been wavering for weeks on taking the Wellbutrin again (because of all the negative posts about anxiety). So today my md prescribed Zoloft, but I'm afraid to take that because of weight gain possibilities....even though I was on it a while ago and had no negative effects. I'd rather take the WB (who needs weight gain!!) but I'm afraid too because of anxiety....so all night I'm reading posts, thinking, thinking, what do I do...do I try the Zoloft and see if I gain weight, or try the WB and see if it helps anxiety? I know everyone's different, and my md said that some people respond well to WB and helping anxiety...I mean, I don't remember it hurting me but like I said, I don't remember taking it alone. I might have though. I should keep better track of my records.
I'm just relieved to read these posts, now I'm leaning towards the WB first....I don't know! Please let me know how you do.
