Has anyone tried Wellbutrin XL for anxiety? i know it's an anti-depressant but I was curious. Thanks.

Hi,
I take a low dose of Wellbutrin (75mg 1x/day). I had panic attacks for the first few days, but then they went away and since then I've been feeling better. It just takes a bit of the edge off the anxiety/depression and makes it more manageable. A few weeks ago I tried to push my dose up to 100mg 1x/day, but that was too much and I felt really "blah." That's the only way I can describe the feeling. I'd recommend starting off slowly and working your way up to a higher dose once you see whether it will help your anxiety.

Thanks laurar,

I have not used this med but I have read of members that have done well on it.  Of course everyone is different.
