Hello Pat and Nancy, I have been having the same problems as you two. I have now been on 300 mg/day of Wellbutrin for 5 weeks. After the second week, my depression started to lift a bit, but then I hurt my back and slid right back into a deep deep depression. This makes me think it really isnt working like it should.
Also, I suffer panic attacks and have chronic anxiety. I thought I was going crazy from the anxiety, and couldnt figure out if it was from the Wellbutrin or hurting my back (i'm a hypocondric too).
So my psychiatrist gave me Klonopin just to take for a very short time (2 weeks) just to help with this current bout of anxiety. We decided I would stay on the Well. for a couple more weeks to see if there was any improvement. So far there has been none.
My anxiety is still at a very high level, although I feel like the only thing that has helped it is the Klonopin, but I do not want to be dependent on that. I have already been through Serzone (didnt work) and Paxil (I was allergic to it). I was really hoping
the wellbutrin would work because of the low side effects, and I have completely quit smoking since taking it.

Does anyone know of a good supplement to take with wellbutrin to lessen the anxiety? My psych says that if I dont improve on this she is going to switch me to Celexa. Does anyone know anything about this AD?
I am really starting to feel like I will never find the right combo for me and am getting tired of trying. Is it always this hard to find the right one for you?

I dont know if this really answers any of your questions, but this has been my experience on Wellbutrin so far.
