I, too, just started taking Wellbutrin SR.
I, too, had great initial response to Effexor XR.
I have never tried a straight-up SSRI.

RE: The Wellbutrin Side Effects...

100 mgs in the AM for ten days, no problem.
100 mg EA am and pm and experienced acute physical signs of anxiety (muscle tension, chest tightness, tremor, headache, and PISSED OFF thoughts) but that was a 100% jump in medication level, and staying up all night to get an important task done didn't help. :-|

Today is day 6 at 200 mg and asymptomatic again.

I think going up slowly is a good idea, and go to 250 tomorrow. This will be only a 25% increase in medication, so I hope it will be smoother this time.

My pdoc did reassure me that most people lose the irritability and anxiety after a few weeks at theraputic dose. I don't really care, though... it feels great to be a b*** instead of a soggy puddle of lethargy, apathy, and hopelessness. ;-)

hope this helps,
