WB was actually the very first AD that I tried. Didn't work. Then, several years later I tried it again because the shrink I was seeing wasn't sure if I had really given it a good trial (even though I had been on it previously for about 3 months, probably at 300mgs). The second time, it still didn't work after 4 months, 400mgs.

So then, just last February, knowing that it is used for ADD and feeling like my ADD symptoms were extremely bothersome, I tried it yet again. I was only on it for a few days when I had a complete meltdown, worse than anything I've ever experienced. Still, I stayed on it for a couple more weeks, but continued having these bizarre meltdowns. Finally I went off it. I think that since I was also taking Cymbalta, the combo was just too much for me. The addition of WB to Cymbalta seemed to totally send me over the edge of sanity. Those few weeks were when I felt like I had truly lost my mind, more than any other time in my life.

So unfortunately, I don't know if I can take WB. I've still been considering it though--- I can't help but wonder if MAYBE it could work now combined with lithium and not being on Cymbalta. I used to think if something doesn't work, it doesn't work, but over the past months, I've realized (and experienced) that combinations of drugs can really work differently than the same drugs by themselves.
