Wellbutrin (brand name for buprion) in itself has been known to cause anxiety and restlessness. I have been on it and it made me speedy and in actuality its chemical make up has similar properties of that of amphetamines. So I know in me it did. I dont know your exact panic symptoms so its hard to say what you are going thru. My hands trembled on it and I felt speedy and I just didnt like the way I felt. If it is helping you and you take klonopin I would think that the klonopin would negate these symptoms so I am wondering if you are on too high a dose of wellbutrin or a low dose of klonopin. I wish you said how much you are on and how long and for wht reason you take it. Talk to your doctor maybe about a dose adjustment or maybe switching to xanax for the panic which works better for panic. Good luck

I have been taking clonazepam for years along with Effexor. I have also been taking bupropion for a couple of months now and have had no panic attacks.

I have GAD but several years ago I went through a short bout of panic attacks prior to being on meds.
