It CAN help with anxiety, although, typically, it isn't the BEST option to try first. Wellbutrin can be activating, which can cause more anxiety. The SSRIs (ie Zoloft, Prozac, Lexapro, Celexa, etc.) are usually tried first.
Of course, everyone responds differently to medications. What may not work for you may work great for someone else. It's all about trial and error. You have to give each med the appropriate amount of time to see if it will be effective. These meds usually take about 4-6 weeks to really start making a difference. Of course, therapy is a vital component of any treatment plan, be it for anxiety and/or depression.
Good luck to you! Let us know how you're making out!
The scariest thing happened to me with this medication.
On the fourteenth day of taking it, i wanted to kill myself, it was a constant thought, for one whole day. This never entered my mind before or since, although i had psychotic depression i always wanted to live. Except for this one day.
I stayed on it for 8 weeks, it didnt work for me.
