I'm in a really similar position to you at the moment so I sympathise 100%! Also share your concern about taking multiple meds.

I don't know a great deal about med combos, but I did read with interest that over here (the UK) most combos aren't approved for major depression because they just don't think the scientific evidence for their effectiveness is convincing enough.

A guy in the US with BP disorder I met in a chatroom had switched to a "minimalist" pdoc, who believed in using a bare minimum number of meds and only treating symptoms as they surfaced. He was only taking lithium, after years on 4-5 meds, and felt better than he had in some time.

Perhaps - under a doc's supervision - you could try withdrawing some of the meds one by one to see how you react.
