Hi there. I have been on paxil for years and years... going through marriage issues and depression and panic attacks have come on so doc prescribed Cymbalta. 30 mg for the next week and then up to 60mg. Do I take this with my paxil? I took for first time last night and have headache today and feel weird. Has anyone taken this with paxil? What can I expect?
Hello, Janice! Check with your doctor because usually you'd wean off one medication while increasing the dose of the other. There is a risk of a rare but serious condition called serotonin syndrome if these types of drugs are used together long term:
