    Wellbutrin or SickButrin almost made me kill myself. At the least I went psychotic.
    And now do is effexor at 225mg dose. I reduced dose to one-half plus an ND had Mr add 5-MTHF a reduced more available form of Folic acid. It's early to say, but it appears I'm better. This is to be good for all us SAD people in nothern sunless climes.
