> You could try it and see. I must admit that a strong dose of caffeine still seems to beat the Wellbutrin in some ways. I am still drinking a lot of coffee and I am taking Wellbutrin+Celexa (another SSRi). You might be better off taking a low dose of a conventional psychostimulant like Adderall instead-if that's possible.

First of all and this has been talked about before if you (whomever) wants to do a search, if caffienne/coffee helps you then try using caffienne pills instead of coffee. Because you can then much better regulate the amount you take by cutting up a pill and also unlike coffee you are assured of a consistent dosage. I use drug store generic yellow 200mg caffiene pills which I cut in half or quarters.

I have found that using caffiene like this has been helpful to me and works synergystically with my other meds like Wellbutrin and/or Neurontin. Think about it like another med in the cocktail. However I generally only take it in the am after I get up and not more than 100mg. I have been trying Adderal and I think its like caffiene but more effacasios (sp?) as they say. However I find again that caffiene augments the effect of ritalin or adderal and the other ones and works with them to create a more complete effect. I tried not taking the caffiene and just taking ritalin for example and it was not as good. They do different things. I find caffiene opens my mind in a way the others dont. However to avoid crashing or other side effect problems I only take it as I said above. You can experiment to see what works best.
