Hi,

I'm going to ask for Wellbutrin when I see my doc the next time.
I have great hopes that this drug will lift my mood.

But I'm concerned about increased anxiety.
It's a possible side effect from Wellbutrin.

Normally Buspar takes care of my anxiety.
But I might need to add a benzo for the first month on this drug.

I want a mild benzo so that I can work well.
I don't want to be drowsy.

What benzo would be the best for Wellbutrin induced anxiety?

Best regards,
Heuer

I dont think you will run into anxiety if you get the name brand XL @ 150mgs.

Get it first before trying to assume what your going to use to counter it.

Agreed. There's no reason to be preemptively taking a benzo. I was on Wellbutrin XL 300mg for a few months and my anxiety wasn't any worse because of it.

Of course, a lot of it is psychological too so it's important you understand that it's not typical for there to be heightened anxiety from it.
