hi. i was on 400mgs wellbutrin sr, on top of abilify. and...

it's OK. didn't do much for my looping thoughts (I'm now on Prozac, for better or for worse..), but it did lift my spirits a bit and help with concentration. discontinuation was a breeze; I stopped it, slept more for a couple days, dealt with a touch of melancholy, and that was it.

honestly, with the high dose neuroleptic on board in your situation, i'd all but beg for a little bit of Ritalin. fun fact: back in the day, Ritalin was advertised (to shrinks, not the public) as a quick and easy mood lift...and it was also pushed to help counteract sedation from the old school antipsychotics (usually phenothiazines, such as Thorazine).

if you have a lot of anger, aggression, active psychosis...not a good idea. wellbutrin wouldn't be either, honestly. but, at least with Ritalin, it'd be a quick lift...and if you hated it, its easy to discontinue...just stop.

im not trying to push uppers on you, but with the seizure risk from wellbutrin + everything else you're on...

ritalin, maybe provigil (I think it has some rough adverse effects + drug-drug interactions, too...), perhaps Mirapex...

but not so much wellbutrin. just a personal, completely and totally and thoroughly un-professional guess-timate.
