> > Have had anxiety for over a year with a lot of facial flushing and some muscle weakness. My doctor has had me on all the SSRI's .. most recently Celexa. They all give me the creeps and don't help my anxiety (diazapam and beta blockers help). I asked for Wellbutrin and was told it's too stimulating. I argued and won and it appears to have helped some of my symptoms. Any theories?
> Wellbutrin is usually used to treat depression, but sometimes it is prescribed for ADHD, due to the fact that it effects norepinphrine in the brain, and can calm a hyperactive person down. If some of your anxiety stems from you being hyperactive, then maybe this is why you feel more calm. I have seen Wellbutrin work this way for others also. I am currently taking Celexa at 5mg, and I have only been on it for a week and a half, but it has helped me tremendously with my social anxiety and depression. I asked my doctor if I could take Wellbutrin for anxiety, too, but he said it wouldn't help at all and that it might make it worse. But, I am glad it is working out for you!! Good luck! Oh, and I have one question: Why did you stop taking Celexa?

Stopped taking Celexa as almost al SSRI's give me flushing and creeps. Withdrew from Celexa in about 5 days ... uncomfprtable but not terrible. Hope it works for you
