How to cope with side effects of anti depressants.

I took Zoloft for awhile but had ED so I quit. I now take Welbutrin and the depression is much less and E.D. is no longer a problem. However, I feel mostly flat and don't feel much euphoria. I smoked weed and it radically improved my sense of well being. I quit coffee months ago and that helped too. However, I feel that the Welbutrin is the cause of my lack of euphoria and my lack of creativity. Are there other anti depressants that do not interfere with the positive effects of marijuana. I no longer drink an alcohol. I don't miss the coffee or the alcohol but I miss the good effects of the marijuana A LOT.  Any suggestions? Marinol ***** for me. I got high but I got very paranoid. Also, it is extremely expensive even compared to the relatively high cost of medical marijuana.
