Brief Answer:
Fluoxetine could help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is an antidepressant medication that is often given in such a scenario. However, I would insist you to discuss with your psychiatrist whether Prodep (fluoxetine) would be right for you. It is a long term anxiolytic and could possibly provide some relief.

Let me know if I could help further.
