I was on Wellbutrin for about six months, from September-March. I have always had trouble with both depression and anxiety/panic attacks. I liked Wellbutrin initially because it gave me more energy and motivation than other SSRIs. I was also taking some Neurontin to take the edge off the agitation from the Wellbutrin. Around month five or so on this combination, my anxiety started getting a lot worse and I was having panic attacks and irrational health worries. I also had episodes where I felt like I couldn't breathe deeply enough and worried myself into chest pains. I went to my regular doctor who found nothing wrong with me. My psych gave me some Ativan to help with the panic attacks but after quitting the Wellbutrin and starting on Lexapro, I realized that my breathing problems were most likely a result of Wellbutrin. The kinds of worries and panic attacks I had on Wellbutrin towards the end were more intense than anything I had previously felt. If you're prone to panic attacks or anxiety, you may want to look for a different drug than Wellbutrin.
