I have been on Wellbutrin XL for about 2 months. I have pretty bad anxiety on it. I just wanted to hear what other people have taken with their Wellbutrin XL to combat their anxiety.
Best added drug for the anxiety that comes along with Wellbutrin XL?

I hope you get your question answered. I had to stop Wellbutrin SR because it increased my anxiety. I am on others meds, but the WB worked the best for my depression. It can increase anxiety. Since you have been on it 2 months it may be a side effect that does not go away if you are prone to anxiety. I know others have added Lexapro to combat the anxiety of WB. Best to talk to your doc about the anxiety increase. Wishing you the Best.
beepboop; You should check with the doctor for most people that side effect normally only last a few weeks but looks like you are going to be stuck with it maybe have to try something else or the doctor might be able to give you something to take with it to help with the increased anxiety. I would give the doctor a call on MONDAY. chuck1957
