Have been taking Zprexa for abt. 6 weeks with little change in depressive sxs.Dr added Cymbalta to deal more with my MDD? I know that typically Zyprexa is more an antipsychotic than an antidepressant and my severe depression is overwhelming. Any ideas?
That IS odd. The Cymbalta would definitely be used for treating your MDD, but I'm not sure why you're on the Zyprexa. It is definitely and antipsychotic and it's used for treating dementia as well as acutely manic bipolar II episodes. I think I'd ask the doctor what he's trying to do with the Zyprexa. Hope this helps.
