It appears from your description that the Wellbutrin SR is not helpful(keep in mind that you need to be on the medication at least 4 weeks to accurately assess efficacy) and that you had sexual side effects related to Prozac.
Other medications such as Celexa may be helpful as it is similar to Prozac and may have less sexual dysfunction asssociated with it. The only way to know for sure if a medicine will be helpful is to have a full 4 week trial at standard therapuetic dosages. Please discuss this issue further with your treating physician.
Wellbutrin SR in general has no sexual side effects asssociated with it and often is helpful to treat medication induced sexual dysfunction. Wellbutrin SR tends to be stimulating, may cause agitation, can suppress appetite but is typically well tolerated. There is no absolute contraindication of using Wellbutrin SR in eating disorders but if it is used it should be done cautiously. Hope this was helpful.

I think I have been on every anti depressant on the market now, it comes down to what works for YOU, zoloft is the best out of the bunch for me, but I think it was contributing to heart palpitations, once I stopped...the palpitations stopped. Welbutrin gave me anxiety attacks as with many others, but it works well for many. It's a game, you have to just play it out until you find the right combination. I am very frustrated now beacause I don't think I have another drug to even try...
I have read that Celexa is good for anxiety, depression and bulimia. I have not been on it long enough to see if it stops any of these problems I currently have but the side effects are minimal so far.
I have been on Celexa for about 2 months. It has been amazing!! I do have some slight difficulty with orgasm. It takes a little longer but now I am experimenting with adding a slight amount of testosterone. This has already seemed to improve things. People are always commenting on how pleasant I am. My pms has drastically improved. My anger and temper is non existant. This is something I have been dealing with for my entire life. I love it
Yes, you need to try what works best for you. I've had good results from Serzone. As with any, you have to experiment a little bit to get the right dosage for you and stay on it a few months before giving up! I sleep well if I take the entire dosage before bedtime and very little sexual problems.
