The Wellbutrin was given to me in the hospital and it was with seroquil and later remeron as well. It was never on its own. Wellbutrin was not the right chemical for monotherapy for me at least. Viibryd alone just wasn't effective is what im saying. when it reached therapeutic levels, I was surviving, not quite living. I was alive, but I was kinda dying because monotherapy wasn't enough and I went off abilify earlier in the year.
I think augmentation and/or adjunct therapy works with the anti depressant effect because it seems to me that there is mood instability tendencies within a possible unipolar diagnosis. I think I have bipolar tendencies without a mood stabilizer but maybe not actual bipolar disorder.
In any case, viibryd was effective, just not effective without an adjunct agent. If I were to measure myself on the depression scale they use, I would say I had very obvious residual features. But adjunct treatment has pushed me closer to "remission" from symptoms. The psychotherapy part is a breeze, it's these damn meds that are a pain.
So, in conclusion, lol, thank you for conversing with me first and foremost. It takes a great deal of care to be doing what you've been doing for all of these people. It's phenomenal to give the time and opinion. But secondly, I think I like Latuda being on board along with lamictal. I think these other meds with the antidepressant must be the go to method for me. So now the only issue left is discerning what meds are needed and which ones are just being pumped into my body unnecessarily. Lamictal may be a crucial piece of my puzzle. You make the argument that Vortioxetine is basically viibryd, however, it is another drug. So it is quite possible that this drug may serve me well in my life.
