Thanks for your input
No, I am not bipolar. The hospital doctor put on Lithium as augmentor or as extra AD on its own. I have a history of mood swings as you might recall.

Do you think I should have a new TCA like Imipramine AND Wellbrutin or just Wellbrutin on its own?

I will add a small dose Lexapro as this is my only possible move right now. Managed to get hold on the pdoc today and he is convinced that the Lithium wll kick in sometime soon - I have been on Lithium for 8 weeks by now...
