I used to take Wellbutrin 6 months ago and stopped and it was great. I stopped because I thought I didn't need them anymore, must be given me some confidence! So now I take 150mg XL because I thought this would be best for me because I was on them before for depression. Now in on them for depression but more anxiety and am on day 2 and I'm experiencing increased anxiety, headache and notice I am twitching sometimes when I lay down. Does it get worse before it gets better? Today I had a break down and cried because my anxiety was too much. I've been on Paxil and lexapdo in the past and they've done nothing but make me gain weight. I like Wellbutrin so much because it motivated me and I lost weight. That's what I'm hoping it'll do this time and calm my anxiety.
