Hello Christina,

Kindly tell me that -

Have you been by any psychiatrist yet?

What was the diagnosis made by the doctor who saw you?

Currently you are on what medicines and in what doses? Are these medicines effective in your case?

Is there any family history of psychiatric disorder in your family?

Thanks.

After going through your list of medicines and the symptoms you have mentioned it appears to me that your may be having depression which is not responding to Wellbutrin ( an antidepressant).

For confirmation you may try an online screening test for depression

Depression Screening Test

And if this is case, switching over to some other good antidepressant such as Zoloft, or Lexapro should solve the problem.
