I'm 18, and about a month ago, I was taking a grand total of 550 MG's of anti depressants.  Wellbutrin SR, and Effexor.  I had a small driving incident, where I don't remember what happened, so I had to have an EEG to find out that I'd had a seizure(s).  Now I'm being taken off of the Wellbutrin.  So far my depression is fine, but I'm worried when winter sets in, and the sun don't shine, my depression will go down hill until they can find out what's wrong with me.  I'm not allowed to drive anymore either!!!  This really sucks.  :(  I need some advice, or.. something.. I don't know.. I just feel like a burden to my mother to have to drive me to school, and stuff..  even if I'm not.  There are times I feel like I can be taken off the medicine, but.. I know I can't, especially because now I only take 150 Effexor and 200 going down to 100 then to 0 on the Wellbutrin.  :((  Help.
