so....the question is. should i just STOP taking the wellbutrin xl?
i don't think i can really taper off this since it is xl........which means i can't cut it in half.
do you think klonopin + remeron(maybe an increased dose) is a good combination?
i might ask about tricyclic antids.

Remeron can be very effective at therapeutic doses. It's main disadvantages are that it can be very sedating and it is the antidepressant most likely to poop-out. Quotei might ask about tricyclic antids.IMHO, they are a better long term bet than Remeron. Either amitriptyline (Elavil), or imipramine (Tofranil) would be good initial choices, or if you've reacted badly in the past to SSRIs, the more norepinephrinergic nortriptyline (Aventyl, Pamelor) and desipramine (Norpramin).Ian
UGH this sucks. are all those meds you mentioned sedating? i like sedating antids because i have trouble sleeping.

Amitriptyline is likely to be the most sedating, however, it is also more likely to produce ongoing nuisance side-effects such as dry-mouth and constipation. Doxepin is even more sedating, but a little easier on those other side-effects.Ian
i know you're on a tricyclic is it one of those
do you think there is no hope for remeron?
my psych doc accidentally wrote me a script for 30mg and i'm thinking about just upping the dose and seeing what happens, but then again i don't want to self medicate lol.
