> Throughout my treatment history, it was recommended by doctors that I NOT pulse antidepressants. I am not sure of all their reasons why, but I think treatment resistance was a concern.

There's an exception to [nearly] every rule, but there are myriad reasons for this. I'm sure your familiar with a lot of them.

This is one reason: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kindling_(substance_withdrawal)

This is a neurological term used when talking about seizures, but it very well could apply here.

I think there is also a danger with certain agents of inducing bipolar disorder/mood swings.

Bupropion does have long-acting metabolites, though, and you could stagger doses just to get low levels of the long-acting ones (maybe? I really dont recall enough about it to tell you offhand).

In the final analysis, whatever works for you is what works for you, but I think most likely you're at best going to end up with a suboptimal solution.
