Wellbutrin may occasionally be used to treat anxiety. There are few studies on its use for anxiety, but some have found it to have comparable effectiveness to other antidepressants used for this purpose. Wellbutrin is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder, but it may be prescribed for other indications. I would recommend to follow up with your doctor if you find your anxiety persists or worsens.

Actually I was taken off the Wellbutrin due to aggravating my anxiety even more and I just couldn't handle it. Now I am on Celexa just started three days ago.
