hey there... thank you all for your feedback. i'd like to ask you for any advice you may have... I am going to talk to a doctor this week as well - but here's what has happpened.

last week i started the wellbutrin in the AM (on tuesday) and took my lexapro at night. i ended up having to go to the emergency room, b/c i had a bit of an allergic reaction (my heart was beating fast and the itching was really bad). but i was totally fine.

i just moved, so i'm not near my doctor anymore. plus he's an asshole. so i didn't call him after htat. i'm going to find a local doc.

but the truth is.. i feel like taking a break from all this. it has definitely helped me with my anxiety, and like you caroloee - with less obsessive thoughts, etc.

but i feel like - i have learned what that feels like, and i can control it a bit more now. i'm in such a better place too.. (out of NYC, great new job).

i can always go back and try something else if i feel the anxiety is returning. but i'd like to try some natural methods for a few months. just to clean out the body here.

i started weening off the lexapro (i've only taken like 3 wellbutrin the whole week). so that's fine..

but i'm not sure how to do it. i've skipped a few days now, and had been cutting them in half.

i was on it for 3 1/2 months.

does anyone have any advice/thoughts?

i'm fine - except my dreams are still WACKED... and i have a little itchyness. the second i take any.. i start yawning, etc.

thanks in advance.
