Does it work? Cymbalta 60mgs is doing nothing for me. Wellbutrin was good , but made me hyer alert. I am now back onto Cymbalta cos the withdrawal was too painful. But the 60mgs does nothing. Only seeing the psych in 10 days time. Any answers?
Does anyone take Cymbalta AND Wellbutrin?

I was taking Celexa for 5 yrs. It stopped work on but worked well for that time. My psych doc put me on Warburton 300 XL I call it my miracle pill. I only took cymbals for a couple months so my withdrawal was mild. He told me that it's not a good drug. I am very happy with my results today.
Hi Katstew, my sister as on that combination and she had a seizure... doesnt mean you will but my advice is get off the cymbalta, its a bad bad drug, I know because I was on it for 5 years. Yes it was hard to get off it, 7 weeks weaning off it, onto prozac and I now feel great... good luck to you; Dee
I take Cymbalta and Wellbutrin but am going off of Cymbalta for weight gain and because it didnt work all that well for my depression. It worked wonders for my anxiety. Lexapro was the med I have had best success with. I had a 10-yr remission with Lexapro so I am going back on that. I am almost 14 days into withdrawal from Cymbalta. VERY slowly. Take it slow. Just push through it. Once I get down to 60 mg on Cymbalta I then start on the LExapro and taper up and continue to taper off of Cymbalta.
Hi you must be one of the lucky ones that can take Cymbalta did nothing for me. Is it for pain or mental? First it was given to me for mental then for my fibromyalgia. I was up to 120mgs, which is the max you can have. Maybe another thirty mgs. would help at first. Hope this helps Leron
Yes, I have taken both Cymbalta and Wellbutrin together with good results. Can't say whether the Wellbutrin will still make you hyper alert or not, but it is possible to take the two together. Your other option is to increase the Cymbalta to 90mgs. Want to encourage you to hang in there until the appointment. There maybe other options to investigate. I recently switched from the Cymbalta to Pristiq with excellent results and I also take Wellbutrin still.
Both the mentioned meds are non narcotic, which means u will feel what u may in as long as six weeks from starting them. Got time Katie?? Good Luck
