Anxious depression: both anxiety and depression occur together in many people. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is generally considered an antidepressant but there are studies that show it relieves anxiety as well. The SSRI antidepressants also help both. Relief of mental stressors also helps the body to repair itself. Medication, meditation/mindfulness, exercise, massage, and regular sleep and daily routine are all helpful.
