im on cymbalta seroquel and klonopin but still have issues with mood swings
Hi, Anita! What dosage of Seroquel are you taking and for how long? Have you had more extreme mood swings that have improved but are still troubling? Or are they the same as before you started Seroquel?
Sorry for all the questions ~ I'm just trying to get a better understanding of where you're at.
Looking forward to your reply! WCV
First thing is that if you are bipolar like I am, then the Cymbalta can cause mood swings and even cause Mixed Episodes which is what happened to me. Cymbalta is not recommended for those with Bipolar and I don't know why doctors don't read the black box warning on this med. It says right in the warnings about the high chances of mood swings and mixed episodes which are truly horrible by the way.
Get a different antidepressant from your doctor before this gets out of control.
I am bipolar too and also take klonopin , seroquel and lamictal for mood swings. Ask your dr. for the last med, it has helped me, I know we all react differently to medications and everything that comes with them (side effects, interactions, benefits... etc.)
Just so you know:
Lamictal is used in the treatment of bipolar disorder; seizure prevention; schizoaffective disorder and belongs to the drug class triazine anticonvulsants.
