I take 90 mg Cymbalta daily for pain management for Fibromyalgia; my therapist has recommended an anti-depressant for Major Depressive Disorder that is in a Moderate state and has been for 6+ months.
The cymbalta hasn't helped the depression at all? Most antidepressents would carry a caution if used with cymbalta, but many are on 2 with no problem. Or possibly something like abilify would help you.
Serotonin syndrome is extremely rare and unlikely to occur between Cymbalta and Wellbutrin. I have taken this combo for years and had good results. As Kiasmama has recommended, adding Abilify to your Cymbalta is also an alternative. In fact, I take Abilify as well. Sounds like alot of meds, but it works for me. I'm functioning better now than I did for years before this combination.
