It's a critically important question. Using Wellbutrin by itself is not the best antidepressant. It does work, though. However, the true worth of Wellbutrin is that it augments serotonin reuptake inhibitors. It works well with Zoloft, Effexor, and Pristiq.

I apologize. It's hard for me to keep up sometimes.


Perhaps you need to include an anticonvulsant mood stabilizer to fill the role that lithium did.

Which ones do you think might help? For depression, I usually think of lamotrigine. I forget whether or not you tried it. I also like Trileptal. If Wellbutrin is more tolerable when you abstain from antipsychotics, I would do everything possible in order to keep taking it.

Can you list the tricyclics you have tried?

Just an idea:

- Effexor or Pristiq
- Wellbutrin
- Nortriptyline
- Lamotrigine

- Scott


Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
