Do you foresee any problems combining Temgesic with the following: Lamictal+Sulpiride+Prozac+Wellbutrin+Klonopin?

I'm taking around 0.9 mg. of buprenorphine intrnasally per day. I was transferring from effective Celexa therapy, not treating an active depression, so I can't notice much of a change. Sex may be better, but I'm not completely sure yet (that was the reason I changed). It's been close to 2 months and I haven't crashed, so I think that there is an antidepressive effect. There might be a greater intra-day variation in my "mood', if we can use that medically undefined term, worse in the morning and better in the evening, but I'm not sure, as there is so much else other than the use of pharmacological agents going on. Also, it could be that I've been down so long I don't really know which way is up. If I were playing poker, I think that I'd stick with this hand, if that communicates the idea to you. I may play around with the dose somewhat, but 0.9 mg. is a good "ballpark figure". If you're British, that means that an effective dose may be somewhere near this figure. I hope it works for you.
