In reply to Cymbalta Does Not Seem To Work Compared To Effexor, posted by TommyIsland on September 21, 2005, at 1:14:23
i think it might depend on your dosage of Effexor prior to the cymbalta (or maybe effexor works better for you, period). I took 150mgs Effexor, later took Tofranil+Cymbalta, then just cymbalta...cymbalta wasn't great, but it was roughly as good as Effexor..but 150mgs isn't a huge dose, so who knows. You could switch back, or talk to your doc about adding something to the cymbalta. Why did your doc do the switch? Were you having problems on Effexor? Good luck!
