Psychotropics

Any TCQers know much about psychotropic drugs, in particular anti depressants?
So I've been on anti depressants for 7 years and it's went as follows; flouxetine (Prozac), sertraline (zoloft), amitriptiline (elavil), mirtazapine (remeron) and now venlafaxine (efexor). What would you say would be the next med to try? My pdoc wants me to try paroxatine (paxil) but I've heard that can cause major weight gain so I'm not sure.

Another question; I'm in the UK, how likely are they to prescribe buproprian (wellbutrin)?  Especially since Ive been diagnosed with EDNOS. 

Thanks :)
