In brief: Not often

Wellbutrin (bupropion) would be unlikely to directly improve the core problem of body dysmorphic disorder.
It may, however, be used to treat co-occurring conditions such as depression. Wellbutrin (bupropion) should be used with caution in this population, as it is contraindicated in patients with bulimia nervosa, a condition that occurs frequently alongside body dysmorphic disorder.
