Buspar (buspirone): Buspar (buspirone) may help. Exercise would be a better, more natural way to deal with anxiety and not counteract the Wellbutrin!

Anxiety: A side effect of many medications for anxiety is sedation, but different people respond differently to different medications. SSRI medications are good for anxiety and can be given with bupropion (Wellbutrin). Sertraline (Zoloft) is approved for anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, and 85% to 98% do not report sedation with it. Exercise, deep breathing exercises, & CBT are VERY helpful also
