> I dont know if Dr's really know what we have..I supposidly have "panic disorder", yet my pdoc wants to keep me on lamictal. She has never mentioned BP2 or any variation of it. So, I think the 3 drugs you mentioned your dr might add to cymbalta isnt just about you being labeled as BP soft? (never heard that one) but its my understanding that those types of drugs (lithium, lamictal, ablify) are augmentor drugs. Meaning they are suppose to give a kind of kick start to your other medication. I know you are trying to find someone who was told they have your dx, and then find out what drugs they take. But that usually doesnt work. I find that its hard to narrow that down. Like, Susie might take zoloft and zyprexa for her depression and it works great, and for Joe, who also has depression, that combo makes him sick..

Yes, that's true. I'm just trying to get pieces of information so that I can hopefully understand more of the big picture. My doctor also suggested that I try Abilify and Lamictal alone. I think you're right that a lot of it is just guess work on their part (albeit educated guesses).

Thanks,
Kara
