> Hello everyone,
> I have been of literally dozens of A/D's since I was diagnosed with Major Depression 15+ years ago to no effect. Three years ago I was on a combination of Wellbutrin 450mg, Cylert 112mg and Nortryptilene 100mg. The last one was prescribed by my plain clinic doctor for chronic pain.

James here...

The seizure warning for wellby is because it was studied with women w/ eating disorders and a small # had seizures. In reality all or most AD's
have ~ the same risk (very low) and I would suspect it was the combo that did it. I had a seizure on very high dose TCA's, the dose was what caused it probably, though it is not that uncommon for men 20-30 to have a seizure on no meds or other conditions. Those on combos, like myself, need to be aware of on med causing a higher level of the other...i.e. use the smalllest dose possible.
