In reply to Wellbutrin and MAOI - safe combo? - please advise, posted by Angela5 on September 20, 2000, at 2:03:00


First of all, if your doctor doesn't know, why doesn't he/she consult a pharmacist or someone specialized in that area? I personally would not feel too confident working with a GP who seems to rely on their patients for current medication information! That seems a bit ridiculous.

I am all for being my own advocate, finding out the most information on my own before consulting with my psychiatrist and GP on meds - has been very helpful for me as a I debate medication issues with them and I am a part of the decision process in terms of what approach they will take next (rather than just sitting there like a guinea pig with my head in the sand) -- but having a medical professional unsure of what to do makes me very uneasy and this is your LIFE you are dealing with! Sorry if I sound a bit uneasy about that, possibly me overreacting (because I'm going through awful withdrawal) but it just worried me that he/she sounded like they were leaving the issue in your hands. ((sorry if I upset you or if I misinterpreted)) :-)

All I know from personal experience is that I was on WB and had to stop for two weeks before starting Parnate (which I am currently going through hell with, withdrawal-wise). Another very nice lady on this board said you could augment both wellbutrin and MAOI's, as well as lamictal, clonazepam, ec. Hopefully she will see this posting and respond. I think her name was Anita but I'm not sure....

Anyways good luck and keep us posted!
