i just started wellbutrin a week ago
my shrink is on vacation for 2 weeks so i cant really go back to her for now and she said if it makes me anxious and/or uptight then i can just stop it
i realized that i do have a lot more anxiety being on it..shaking constantly..heart racing at random times..even anxiety attacks over small things that would usually not make me like that
should i continue and see if it goes away or should i just stop?

my hands get a lot more shaky then they usually do if im feeling anxious and it gets to the point where i could barely right sometimes cause its shaking and i get really nervous and have anxiety attacks at really random times even if its not something that would typically make me feel like it..my heart races too and stuff..i was only taking 1 150mg tablet but i stopped cause i couldnt handle the shakes and anxiety

wow good luck!
I am a bit anxiety and from dad to day attacks. Never had that before.
I lost the desire to sleep.
I am in my room ever nince, I went twice to the super and that was difficult
I am pretty agrassive
I have a blurry vision

basically before I was bad but stable, and it changed me to nothing

the more I read about it the less I wanne know.....

This sounds just like a reaction that I had to zoloft... Increased anxiety, anxiety attacks, depression became much worse, shaking, couldn't sleep etc.

When I stopped the zoloft, the anxiety stopped just like you said, but the depression remained, it may be comforting to know that it took 4-5 days after I stopped the zoloft, but the depression definitely subsided. In fact, I feel better than ever! Good luck, stay well,
