> I'm currently not on Effexor XR, haven't been in a couple of years.
> I'm currently only taking Lamictal and was going to add Cymbalta, but a couple of doctors have cooled my jets a little about "wanting to try something new" so I think I will wait a few months to hear more personnal experiences versus what Lilly has pumped into the media, which I hope turns out to be positive and true.
> I just remember being on Paxil one time feeling really good and Lexapro came out. Being the "newest and greatest" I was sucked in and switched, worst mistake I ever made.
> What was worse was when I went back to the Paxil, it didn't work as good and I had side effects that I didn't have before.
> I haven't been on any SSRI, SSNRI in a few months and have heard Prozac goes well with Lamictal. I think I'm going to try it and if it isn't doing the job in a few months and I've heard a positive response from personal friends taking Cymbalta, I might go for it.

I didn't think Lamictal alone was effective for depression. I was on Prozac for nine years and did quite well emotionally for the first five or six years. If you haven't tried it before, it might work for you.
