I guess the symptoms I want to address are feeling sad nearly all the time, crying (sometimes for a reason I can name and, other times, not), and a serious lack of motivation to do anything other than sit in bed with my laptop. Oh, and concentration....a 30 minute sitcom seems to be more than I can manage.

I did try Wellbutrin SR about a year ago and it was NOT a good experience; I only lasted 3 days. I'm not sure I'd call it anxiety, but I felt agitated, irritable, and on the verge of telling everyone EXACTLY what I thought of them. (The one thing I regret is that I did not follow through with my inclination to tell my mother to shut the f*ck up!) However, the prescription was filled with Budeprion, and I've read about lots of people having problems with that; but, not with the brand name or bupropion. I'd definitely be willing to try it again.

Can you explain the reasoning behind using both Wellbutrin XL and a low dose of SSRI? Does the SSRI tame some of the activating features of the Wellbutrin??

Thanks, Racer. I really appreciate your input.
