My doc is having me switch from Abilify to Wellbutrin. Just wondering if anyone can offer information regarding either or both- side effects, preference, benefits, etc. I also have anxiety so I am hoping it doesn't make that worse...

Good Morning,

Hope your day is filled with sunshine :-) .

Wellbutrin can increase your anxiety.  My Pdoc prescribes Buspar with Wellbutrin to help with the anxiety.  Most of the newer anitdepressants have antianxiety properties but Wellbutrin does not to the best of my knowledge.

Please do talk with your Doc re this.

Wishing you the best,
Kitt
