> I don't understand your being treated for so long at 150mg, even thought the sweet spot for most people is 300mg.

I wanted to see if 150mg alone would work and honestly thought going to 300mg was going to make my anxiety erupt, but it was totally the opposite effect. I like many in the past have tried a med for 2 weeks and thrown in the towel, only to wonder "what if" I would have stuck with it for a month. So I'm on a mission to give this a try for a month and if it doesn't work, scrap it and never waste my time obsessing about it as an option for me. I also am trying 50-100mg Trazodone at night and read numerous places that Wellbutrin and Trazadone have a major seizure risk, whereas SSRI's don't seem to be as bad with it which threw me off a bit as Trazodone totally slows me down.

> You know, I almost always felt weird in some way when a drug was going to elicit a positive response.

I hope this is true as this is how I've felt. I just have a lot of pressure at work right now and timing for feeling weird isn't great, but maybe the pressure I'm feeling is self inflicted because I'm feeling weird! If this doesn't work in 2 more weeks, I might try Remeron as I have never tried it. I'm 6 foot 175 so the weight problem isn't much of a worry for me. Did you have any luck with Remeron? By the way, I'll probably start with the Remeron then add a small dose of Vyvanse in the morning. Do you think Remeron/stimulant will work okay together? I'm trying to find a good combo for obsession/anxiety plus ADD. SSRI's never did squat for my OCD and if anything made it worse. If the Remeron/stimulant combo doesn't work together I may try an anticonvulsant/stimulant combo. The big question here will be which anticonvulsant to try for the obsession/anxiety? I've also read alot about Namenda for these symptoms?
