I tried Wellbutrin SR for a few months last summer in an attempt to treat my Social Anxiety, as I was attracted to its lack of sexual side effects. As it turns out, it actually ended up exacerbating my condition at times. I felt very anxious and irritable the majority of the time I was on it, and as a result of being so ramped up on it during the day (I was taking 150mg in the am and then around 3pm) I was usually exhausted by late evening (this went away after a few weeks). I also experienced some unwanted weight loss (though this may be beneficial to some).

Having said this, I can definitely see how this med might work well for someone who functions more on a depressed or dysthymic level as compared to a more anxious person such as I am. I have also heard of it working well in the augmentation of other meds such as the SSRIs, which often cause fatigue and weight gain. I may end up having to add it to the Zoloft I'll be trying soon for these very reasons. :)

Best of luck!

Rocket
