My doctor said he was going to start me on Wellbutrin but he prescribed me buspirone 10 mg. I am confused about what the difference is if there is one and why he said it was Wellbutrin but isn't.
Wellbutrin is an atypical antidepressant which has some effect on anxiety with long term use. Buspirone is an anxiolytic which should help with anxiety almost immediately. They work hand in hand to help you feel better.
You can always feel free to post here with any questions or concerns, but remember that your doctor should be your primary source for medical advice and information.
