Hi Cindy,

I'm afraid I can not predict how your body
would respond to another Wellbutrin trial.
But I think you are correct in thinking that
you may get different results as you are not
tinkering with other med doses at this time.
At least you know if a new wb trial doesn't work
out then you can stop and will probably return to
your present state. Also, since you are more
stabilized now, you could dose in the wellbutrin
very slowly to help avoid problems and allow
escape routes.

It's your call, keep us posted ....

Good Luck,

> John,

> When I first started Lamictal (at 25 mg), I added some Wellbutrin to help with fatigue. I felt great on the Wellbutrin/Lamictal combo for about 5 days (maybe almost "too" great?? Lots of excess energy ...) but then "crashed" big time, with severe depression and worse fatigue.
> From your experience, should I try the Wellbutrin again now that I'm up to 100 mg Lamictal? I am still depressed, although I know it's gotten somewhat better. I definitely need to add some kind of AD though. I am currently taking Serzone, but can only tolerate 100 mg a day which isn't enough to help depression.
> I have had a hard time with SSRIs in the past ... wondering if I might have a different reaction to them in combo with the Lamictal as well.
> Thanks for any feedback. Thanks also for the update on how you are doing. Hope it continues to go well, and that your sleeping habits calm down a bit!
