Wellbutrin is quite activating, which might help lift the symptoms you described. Wellbutrin is not an SSRI; it works on dopamine and I'm not sure what other neuros. Hope this is of some help and that others will answer with more info. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. I was considering Wellbutrin as one of my choices if paxil fails since it acts for both norepinephrine and dopamine. Drugs which are 'activing' can increase concentration and thinking ability apposed to drugs which are sedating?

My main and actually only concern with wellbutrin is that is can cause weight loss. I have been quite thin sometimes so I guess if I did try wellbutrin I would just have to force myself to eat more.
