Forgive me for not knowing your case history. I am sure you have described it on Psycho-Babble numerous times.

In your mind, what constitutes "too much" medication and why?
I need 5 medications at high dosages in order to receive benefit from treatment. In my mind, that's exactly the right number.
What is the Lyrica for?
If you were to fail to respond fully to Wellbutrin and Remeron, you might actually consider adding a third antidepressant. I would choose either Lexapro or Effexor. If you don't respond to that, you can get rid of the Remeron and replace it with nortriptyline. If that fails, then it might be time to consider an MAOI.
