Is there any kind of med you guys have had added to counter the anxiety of wellbutrin or is it better to just move on to a different med?

I have obsessive ADD, ADD-PI and mild OCD. Currently on 300mg wellbutrin xl per day...it's hard to tell if it's working but I've begun broadening my horizons and might be a little more focused...this could just be my circumstances though. The anxiety can get pretty bad sometimes though but not like a panic attack or anything (I've never had panic attacks anyway).

Try adding 10 mg Lexapro or 25 mg Celexa in the mornings.

Failing that, 0.5 mg Klonopin, morinings and evenings.

Good luck.

Intuniv may be an option

A few weeks with added bensodiasepines took care of it for me.
