Thank you all for your responses! I just saw my doc on Monday, and he changed my script by my request. I am on 20 mg celexa a day, no buspar, and wellbutrin 200 mg 3 times a day. (Yes he advised me that that is above the max dose, but I know that wellbutrin does have an increased effect at higher doses.) As far as the buspar goes, it never had any effect on me, so side effect, but no effects, so thats why we canned it. The celexa helps but I feel get no benefit above the 20 mg.

So far so good. I never had the usual side effects people complain about when they start wellbutrin. (Like not being able to sleep, jitteriness, etc.) But since I increased the dosage I have only gotten about 3 hours sleep a night, but I'm not really complaining. I don't feel tired during the day, so I don't call that insomnia. I have a little jitteriness, but again no complaints. I think I am finally at a therapeutic dose. (I have a high tolerance, it seems, for most drugs.)

As far as the increased seizure risk, I am willing to take my chances. Nothing like that runs in my family, so I think I'll be ok.

Thanks again for your input. I will check out those sights and if this dosen't work I'll presure my doc for stims.

Take Care All,
