Actually, I didn't word my original post right about the Cymbalta. I tried it for a little over 3 weeks & I got progressively worse to where I started missing appointments and not wanting to go out or do anything. And then the last weekend that I tried it, I was a complete zombie! I was in bed for 3 days straight, not really sleeping much, but, just kinda staring, not having the energy or desire to do anything at all.

From what I understand from the forums....Cymbalta works more on the Serotonin than Effexor does. I think anything that works more on my Serotonin is not going to be the drug for me. I felt much worse with Prozac, Celexa, and Lexapro. Paxil at first provided a boost in energy & mood but then it caused HORRIBLE sleep problems and I was in tears by the end from all the sleep deprivation.

I just read that Wellbutrin is mostly for Dopamine and it disappoints me & surprises me that that didn't work for me! I felt very numb on it....not really depressed, not really happy; I simply existed. and then a rash developed on me and the doc took me off it. I must admit, after reading how Wellbutrin mixed with something else works so well for a lot of you folks, I really wanna try it again! Maybe, that rash had nothing to do with the Wellbutrin. It didn't bother was just a discoloration across my belly. :-)


>>If Effexor worked well for you, I strongly urge you to give Cymbalta another try. I've been taking it now since late August, and I will tell you that most of what I experienced on it changed after the start up phase. On the other hand, my depression didn't fully remit until we added Wellbutrin. It may be that you'll need some sort of combination, too.<<
