I'm going to see my pdoc today (my general doc was the one that gave me 60mg Cymbalta samples) and get her blessing before I start it.

A couple of questions, can you compare the initial strartup feeling of Cymbalta to any other med you've tried, Prozac, Paxil, Effexor XR etc? Also, do you know what dose of Cymbalta would equal 20mg Prozac, Paxil?

It seems like from past posts you said you are taking 150mg of Lamictal. Are you still at this dose? I've been lucky and have always been able to get effects from minimum doses of meds. My pdoc keeps pushing up my Lamictal but for me, at 150mg (8 days now) I've felt slothy and and extremely unmotivated with know desire to do anything. She wants me to go to 200mg and I'm fearful that will just increase these side effects. I'm mainly only taking it for an antidepressant. Would this be a sign to maybe drop back to 100mg? My pdoc is one that goes by the book and not by how the patient really is being effected by the meds. I wonder about psychiatrists sometimes.
