I am not a psychiatrist, I am not aware of the literature concerning combination antidepressants. Your physician would be the best to judge that.
However, from a purely pharmacological point of view combining a SSRI antidepressants (lexapro) with a serotonin antagonist (trazodone) will probably result in elevated blood levels of trazodone and its metabolite (mCPP) may increase and cause anxiety. The combination of SSRI antidepressants with Wellbutrin (bupropion) carries a risk of seizures.
