Anxiety/ depression: Paxil (paroxetine) (SSRI) may help with anxiety/ depression and as a result may also improve insomnia. Wellbutrin is not used for insomnia. It is used to treat atypical depression. Although it is not FDA approved for anxiety - recently it is is coming to light that it may help to reduce some anxious sxs.
