> You indicated you are weaning off of wellbutrin. According to an article by two psychopharmacologists, this may not be necessary:
> "We have found all antidepressants that do not involve significant serotonin reuptake inhibition (e.g., bupropion (WELLBUTRIN), trazodone and tricyclics other than clomiprmaine) can be safely administered with MAOIs. Combination therapy is worth considering because it may be effective when other approaches have failed.."

> Maybe, you only have to be off of the straterra and can wean off wellbutrin while starting the MAOI?????????? I am not a doctor and have not even taken an MAOI (yet), but the article is probably at least worth showing to your doctor.
This is interesting because I thought Wellbutrin + MAOI was a no-no.
