I tried it a couple years ago. I have GAD and depression. It didn't help me at all and I ultimately stopped taking it because it made me extremely angry and irritable..screaming at the TV announcers during the olympics like a madman! :-)
It does help many people I hear and is usually combined with another antidepressant for full effect.
Give it a try...screaming at the TV is one of the minor side effects I've ever had! Good luck.
Wellbutrin isn't recommended if anxiety is the primary problem. Wellbutrin is a stimulating anti-depressant, so if anxiety is your main problem chances are it will just make it worse. It's often added to an ssri to counteract the sexual and weight gain side effects, but this is a pure anti-depressant, not a combination depression and anxiety remedy unless depression is the source of the anxiety.
