In brief: Unusual combination

Wellbutrin is unlikely to help anxiety at all.
Either Paxil (paroxetine) (p) or clomipramine (c) would be sufficient for anxiety disorder, but usually at significantly higher doses. If both are continued as doses are raised, there is increased risk of serotonin syndrome and and of side-effects from just c, as p tends to raise levels of c. Laxoberon for constipation. Talk to your doc about this. Hope this helps.

In brief: Well, when you first

Start an ssri - anxiety may be a side effect.
Sometimes wellbutrin (bupropion) can also impact ^ anxiety - especially if you are taking in caffeine. See 'ect: but no other procedures. What are you doing outside of medications for your anxiety? By the way- don't know what you mean by 'all od'. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be quite effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night ; good.
