In brief: Different
Wellbutrin (bupropion) does not cause weight gain and it does not have sexual side effects.
It does carry a small but increased risk for seizures and may be more likely to make anxiety worse among other side effects.

In brief: Depends
Each person is biochemically different.
One person may have no problem with a drug but another may have a serious side effect. There is a genetic predisposition to having side effects to certain drugs and there are tests available to find out which individuals are more likely to have a side effect to a particular drug.
