> I'm a little sceptical of notrityline because im bipolar spectrum and antidepressants tend to destabilize me... im currently on lithium 1200 and seroquel 600... but its not cutting it for my bipolar depression.... I've been lookin for something to agument the lithium with... my pdoc is talking about amoxapine (Loxapine)... but im considering augmentibng with wellbutrin, any thoughts?

I would go with the Wellbutrin first.

I am guessing that you were mistaken when you wrote "(Loxapine)" - you probably meant to write "Asendin", the brand name for amoxapine, which is a tricyclic antidepressant with antipsychotic properties derived from its parent molecule, loxapine.

Traditionally, Wellbutrin has been thought of as being a better choice for bipolar disorder because the rate at which it produces mania is supposedly reduced.
