> Ok - I am officially confused. My regular doctor doesn't like me taking both Effexor 75mg and Wellbutrin 200mg. He thinks I should only be on one and maybe try to add back the Trileptal and drop the Effexor.

I'd be confused, too!

And you want a thought? Who prescribed the two drugs together? Some doctors don't like combining drugs, some doctors just don't like to leave alone what another doctor has prescribed. In the case of Effexor and Wellbutrin, they work complementarily, so it makes sense to try them together.

If you went to a pdoc who prescribed the two together, just suck it up and tell your GP, "Well, the pdoc who prescribed them thought it was a good idea, the combination is working for me, and I just plain don't see any good reason to change it." If he can give you a legitimate reason to change, that's another story, of course.

Best luck to you. I hate it when doctors offer entry into the twilight zone like this.
