I have anxiety but because of sexual dysfunction, my doctor changed me to Wellbutrin (bupropion XL 150mg). I read its an anti-depressant. Has anyone with anxiety had a good experience with this medication?
It works according to research on google scholar in anxious depression. It is not effective for GAD. It would be best combined with an ssri if an anxiety disorder is present with MDD for best response/remission rates. Escitalopram has the best evidence for anxiety disorders as monotherapy.
My review of bupropion patient comments is that it can make you more anxious at least initially.
I am in research phase as am considering Wellbutrin to augment an SSRI as I have both anxiety - OCD and MDD. So can’t give you a personalised perspective sorry.
