... My anxiety worsened when starting the medicine but it seemed to go away. But now since i have gone back to college my social anxiety seems worse than ever. My eyes feel and look heavy and i have had panic attacks. Other than more energy i feel that it has lost its benefit. Should i up the dosage or wait it out?
Call your Dr. Leave these decisions to the experts. It would be interesting to know if you had social anxiety before the meds. Also note that some meds may take 6 or 8 weeks to fully work. And in my experience often times the meds will make anxiety worse in the beginning. Another note is that different drugs work for different folks so you may need to search for the right one for your body.
My opinion is that you should call your doc and explain everything you have described. Welbutrin can make some people anxious, and upping your dose will not help if that is the case. I take welbutrin for depression and ativan for anxiety. Everyone reacts differently to Meds though, only your Dr. and you can find the right combo.
