hey! Wellbutrin is, of course, the official anti-depressant for drug-induced seizures. That said, the rate is pretty low--4 in 1,000 treated patients, I think--and your dose is pretty low, too (you can go up to 450mgs/day, to put that in perspective). Theoretically, the Trileptal would help to lower your risks even further. (With Clozapine, an atypical anti-psychotic with a very HIGH drug-induced seizure rate, Depakote is sometimes used for seizure-prevention). Assuming you do not now have and have never had an eating disorder and are not currently withdrawing from treatment with benzos or other sedatives, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Then again...if it REALLY bothers you, it is your body and your treatment, so ask your doctor to switch you to something else.
