Hi Anonymousely. I am shocked that the doctors today fool around with these types of drugs as they do today! I sure hope that they told you that you need to taper off some of these drugs that they had you on. Especially two that I know for sure; which are Cymbalta and Tegretol. Please do your research on every medication before you take it. I wish someone would have told me to do this so I wasn’t going through what I am now. Some of these drugs can make your depression worse if not tapered off slowly. How are you doing now? I hope you have found your way.
