Unfortunately, we can't answer that question here at DF, since none of us are professionals.
My Diagnoses: Severe OCD, panic disorder, depression
My Current meds: Geodon, Cymbalta, Klonopin, Lyrica
My Previous meds: Prozac, Paxil, Celexa,
Lexapro, Luvox, Zoloft, Clomipramine (a horrible med for me),
Xanax, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Risperdal,
Gabapentin (this med did nothing), Buspar (also did nothing)

Anxiety is a common initial side effect of Wellbutrin, but should diminish with time. If it is severe or doesn't go away you would need to speak to your doctor. Lots of people take Wellbutrin with an ssri (I take Wellbutrin along with escitalopram (Cipralex/Lexapro).

WB may not help those with moderate or extreme anxiety, and as you say many find better relief with SsRIs by themselves or in comb with WB.
Everyone is different. Note that WB is not medically approved to treat anxiety, so not all Dr.s may be comfortable trying it. In my case, it seems to be working but it's still very early (4 weeks).
