I couldn't stand the Cymbalta. I was started on it while also on 600mg wellbutrin, which, if you know, is quite stimulating as far as many of the ADs go. I was on 60mg and was a zombie even with my wellbutrin. even on 30mg i just could not wake up or get out of bed the next day i felt like lead (and of course depression already has a tendency to do that to me, but the wellbutrin had been helping) so i finally decided to go off of it since I felt no positive effects -- just sleepiness, fogginess and lethargy. I was on it for only a month though.
I've been on so many drugs i'd have to really sit and think to name them all... and wellbutrin is the only one that has made much of a difference. besides effexor a few years ago, 450 mg, but that pooped out and left me completely numb to everything. i was literally like the walking dead. :/
