Antidepressant's(welbutrin) and 5HTP

Hello everyone. I am on a quest to get off my meds. I don't know if you looked at it but I am the one that made the post of "depression or hormone imbalance"
Anyway, I am still taking my Welbutrin as I don't want to go off until after my wedding next year, probably not a good time to wean off during the wedding planning process. I am following my homeopathic doctors routine to try to correct a hormone imbalance of Estrogen dominance.
I guess I have 2 questions for you guys:
1. Anyone taking Welbutrin find it made their anxiety worse? Did raising from 150-300mg help this at all? (I thought I read that in an older post that some people said it did) Did this side effect go away after a while? I suffer from depression and anxiety so this side effect is not desirable for me at all.

2. Is is ok to take 5HTP while on antidepressants? In that same old post called "lexapro to welburtin" I noticed a lot of people said they were taking 5HTP while on their meds. Did you have any probelms doing this? Did you find the 5HTP helped at all?

I really appreciate any advice or thoughts. Thanks very much.
