... your doctor?
Hello Jill, it was supposed to help with my anxiety and panic attacks but it has not. Mine are real bad tho, it did help with my depression and helped me quit smoking, for anxiety and panic attacks my Doctor put me on Diazepam... that has helped emmesely. Please speak to your doctor tho it is a Benzo..Mary
Wellbutrin is a no-no in the medical field as a medication for the treatment of Panic Attacks. Wellbutrin is a NDRI. Most drugs in that class are stimulants just like wellbutrin is. A good alternative for Panic Disorder would be a low dose Benzodiazepine such as Diazepam 2 MG Or Klonopin .5 MG. I don't recommend SSRI's due to the fact of the daily horror stories I see while working in a pharmacy as Pharmacy Technician. Please talk to your doctor about an alternative med.

I agree that Wellbutrin is not good for anxiety. I just wanted to gently mention that psychologists and psychiatrists are very good at dealing with anxiety- anxiety is also a mental disorder as troubling and hard to live with as depression. The psychiatrist I see for my meds is very well versed in treating anxiety too and can prescribe for that. I think that is why your doctor has suggested that. Hoping you find something that helps you!
