I'm on Cymbalta for severe Fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain. Abilify for depression and anxiety. Recently, my doctor put me on Wellbutrin for treatment resistant depression. It seems to be working really well, but it also seems like a lot of meds.
Just curious if anyone else is on this combination.
Honestly I have not been on those three, but I take Lexapro , Rexulti and another drug for my treatment resistant depression and pain management.
It may seem like a lot to you, but if they are working - hallelujah! I used to think similar things about my own situation, however good mental health is paramount to my own privately held stigmas around pharmaceuticals. As I have gotten older and my body changes, I listen. I would love to be medication free and have tried many times - each time I go through a major depressive episode I am reminded that although not perfect, thank goodness there are solutions to the chemical imbalances in my body and the consequences of living with chronic pain.
Hi, sea! I'm not on this specific combination either but I am taking four different psych meds along with thyroxine and a blood pressure med. Seems like a lot but I feel very healthy and am having no long term side effects or interactions.
Every person is different in their need and response to different medications and some people need more or less. The most important thing is that they're working for you! I wouldn't worry too much.

Just be aware that welly interacts with abilify lifting blood level of abilify so you may need lower dose of abilify. I personally wish to get off abilify because of restlessness and weight gain and marginal benefit for MDD as adjunct.
I had fibromyalgia symptoms temporarily when I had Disseminated Histoplasmosis. It's shed by bats in their feces and grows in bird/bat feces. It's everywhere in the air, and almost everyone had had the pulmonary form at some point, but some people get an infection throughout their bodies. My coworkers and I all got it from bats roosting in the ceiling at work. It affects the entire body, and it causes numerous idiopathic diseases, malignancies, mental illness, etc.
I have been on the Abilify 10 mg for about 6 months now, and I take Contrave (which has Wellbutrin and Naltraxone in it) for weight control, and then today switched from Trintellex to Cymbalta. I feel like my depression is basically controlled by the Abilify, however I have zero motivation to do anything, so now I'm hoping the Cymbalta helps with that!
I'm just curious how you ended up doing on the Abilify, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta combination? an update would be appreciated!
