Hey Micro, thanks for your thoughtful reply. Actually, the meds were prescribed by my GP, I've never seen a PDOC. My GP, by her own admission, is not an expert on a/d's. I think she's like so many other doctors, just pushing what the drug companies are peddling, handing out free samples, hoping to strike gold. Anyway, I discontinued the meds on my own. I stopped the Wellbutrin cold turkey & didn't notice any side effects. As for the FX, I was down to 37mg every other day for a week or so, then just stopped (I had been on 150mg FX for ~ 6 months, then was in the process of tapering off while starting the Wellbutrin). The withdrawal is already much better. My energy is back. I feel fine mentally. The only thing is I feel a drive to overeat again. I never had that when I was on the FX. Hopefully that will level out, though.

I understand your point about the fact that there are many medical conditions that require lifelong medication, and that depression can be viewed the same. I'm just not convinced there is any medical reason for MY depression. I strongly believe that for me, it is more to do with my thought processes and how I look at life. I'm working aggressively on changing that now, and I trust the depression will naturally resolve.

Meantime, I'm very grateful for this forum. Thanks again, very much, for taking the time to reply.
