Wellbutrin is mainly known for weight loss. I definitely lost a little bit of weight on it - it has stabilized my weight about 8 lbs lower than where my normal stable range is. It's an alerting drug so it raises your activity levels, and since you're more active, you lose weight. It can also cause loss of appetite, but if you are active enough and expend more energy, you can have increase in appetite in a good way to counteract the side effect of loss of appetite, so it can go either way.
Overall though, it is most often associated with weight loss.
