wellbutrin + zoloft

55 yo male - long hx of intermittent depressive episodes since early 20's.  Never interferred much w/ occup or marital adjustment.  Mostly have used psychotherapy w/ some adjunctive meds on occasion.  Past meds have incl zoloft, prozac, buspar, paxil @ relatively low doses for relatively short periods of time (6 mo - 1 year).  Currently taking Wellbturin SR 150 mg in AM -- for about past 8 months.  Increased energy.  But still having trouble "getting out there and enjoying life" the way I would like to.  I am considering talking to my MD abt Wellburin + Zoloft combo. I've never taken more than one psychotropic at a time, and am leery abt taking a lot of meds anyway. Zoloft helped 5 years ago bring me out of my only major depressive episode (which lasted circa 4 months and resulted in my taking several months off from work).  No hosp. No suicidal ideation.
My Q:  Is there literature or clinical/anecdotal evidence suggesting these two might work well in combination?

these are frequently used together with good results..many people who have side effects from zoloft but want to continue it find the combination working quite well...although I have reservations about taking more than one psychotropic, this particular combination does seemto be useful.
