Re: Can Wellbutrin be used for anxiety ??
Hi, my Dr. prescibed wellbutrin for lack of sexual pleasure from being on paxil for 5 years. Well wellbutrin is not for anxiety, Effexor is the only drug approved by the fda for GAD, wellbutrin made me very sick. It acted like a stimulent instead of the opposite. They are trying to find AD that don't have sexual side affects and weight gain, and supposedly wellbutrin has neither of those, like paxil, zoloft,prozac etc. Effexor seems to be the drug of choice for anxiety, I started on it over a month ago, no side affects so far!! Good luck to you, Wellbutrin works for some, but not the majority, just from my own research. Also, 5% lose their hair on wellbutrin and for some, it doesn't come back. just another side effect!Bye for now Wendy
