> I've been struggling to keep from sinking into a major dep.. I have been having more spells of mild anhedonia. Woke up not so good, then watched TV and read some of the ads in the Sunday paper. Started feeling myself sliding downhill -- interest dropping .
> At almost exactly 08:50, I went over the edge -- anhedonia >> significant psychomotor retardation (suddenly) >> extreme fatigue.

> Question: I'm on 300 mg Wellbutrin. Can I be "switched" directly to Effexor, while I decrease Wellbutrin and increase Effexor? (Drop Well. to 150 mg and add Effexor 37.5 mg NOW).
> I feel extremely sick and tired. Any thoughts and/or ideas welcome. If I don't get back to reply, I've probably not rebounded at all.

I would *add* 37.5 of Effexor to your current WB. I've pitched all my other antidepressants, but I've kept a stash of these two just in case I experience what you are experiencing. WB and Effexor are the only two AD's (esp. in combo) that have much punch for me to snap me out it. I've had "attacks" of lethargy before that are sudden. I can't go to sleep though.. it is like I'm real agitated, but my body becomes like a block of lead and I can't move...
