I commented on your other post about the drinks too. It does sound like you had a panic attack to me. If you have one you can be afraid of having another one and that creates a vicious cycle of worry. You also had the panic attack while driving so you want to avoid driving because you're afraid you'll have another panic attack if you do drive. Are you seeing the vicious cycle here? Oh, your Dr wants to put you on Wellbutrin for anxiety? I can not tell you what to do but I can tell you that this is one of the more stimulating meds and I've found that it can actually make anxiety worse. It can work great if you only have depression but not so well if you have anxiety. You may want to talk to your Dr about another med that does help with anxiety. I know some of the other wonderful members here will give you their experience with Wellbutrin and maybe recommend another med to help with your anxiety. Have you thought about trying therapy first. Or, are you already in therapy?
