Hi everyone, I'm feeling a little scared and anxious now as I have read a post about combining these drugs.  I did a google search and it warns that this combo can be fatal.  I am suffering with depression (recovering from MAJOR depression) and I get chronic migraine, can't take the preventatives and narcotics don't work for my migraines.  Is anybody else out there taking a combo like this?  I also read that "serotonin syndrome" is when SSRI and other anit-d's are used together.  I don't have the symptoms but I don't like to think what I could be doing to my body.  On the other hand, depression can kill too.  Please help if you can.
DX: chronic migraine, cervical degeneration, depression/anxiety 
RX: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Soma, Immitrex
