Too many meds: Taking all of these medications together is not a good idea. You run the risk of serotonin syndrome, a potentially lethal condition and you are at increased risk of seizures. It sounds like you must have a difficult case of depression and anxiety and I suggest you talk with you doctor about a better combination. Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Wellbutrin are both antidepressants and you should be on one or the other

Maybe yes - maybe no: The wellbutrin (bupropion) may help if you have atypical depressive symptoms. It is outstanding for that. Discuss your psychiatrist. Take care.
