I know there is a possible interaction with the ultram and wellbutrin, but I need all three. I tried it but got scared it was causing me to argue with my hubby. lol (had just added the wellbutrin.) I have been on the lamictal and ultram together for years.
Sure, they approach it with caution when first prescribing, but I have been successfully taking all three (and Topamax on top of that), and this is the one and ONLY combo that has treated my mental illness as well as chronic pain problems and helped me to see what living a 'normal' and happy life (wholly and fully) can feel like. Also, I had gained weight with other mental health medications, and I lost weight with this combo.
I have been on Ultram for 8 years, Wellbutrin XR for ~5 years, and was doing well, but still wasn't advancing to the appropriate place. I added Lamictal ~3 months ago, providing a window of time where I have transitioned to a good, solid place.
Are there any concerns or side effects in particular that you have been wondering about?
Please ask anything you can think of, and I'll share. For what it's worth my dose of the Wellbutrin is 300. I'm still titrating up on the Lamictal - I currently take 150, and I suspect final dose will be either 150 or 200.
