i'm fairly certain that those too are fully compatible -- in fact, trazodone is the "downer" drug of choice amongst many pdocs who have wellbutrin patients w/insomnia issues -- it's not habit-forming, and can provide a subtle anti-depressant effect of its own for some people, even at low doses. trazodone is also dirt-cheap, or at least it was a few years ago -- about 10 cents per 100 mg tab. you can split those into halves or quarters and one piece (either 25 or 50 mg) should be enough to make you drowsy and relaxed enough to nod off, at least in the beginning before your body/brain adapt to it, after which time you might need to up the dosage somewhat. weight gain is not a commonly reported side effect, so no worries there. i think its half-life is about 6-8 hrs(?), so you might experience some morning sluggishness if the dosage is a bit heavier than you need. if you take your wellbutrin in the morning, that'll probably counteract the sedative effects of the remaining trazodone and the tiredness will go away in short order. if i could tolerate wellbutrin (can't do it, makes me nervous), i'd try this combo myself. good luck
