... Cymbalta 60mgs? I suffer from Depression, OCD and Anxiety/GAD. I go to my GP next week and I'm trying to make as best an educated decision between asking for Paxil or Cymbalta. Thank you in advance!
I'm not sure anyone ca answer this for you cause everybody responds differently to meds. I take Cymbalta 60mg but I've never taken. If I had to guess maybe paxil. I also take Celexa and Lamictal and with those 2 the Cymbalta works pretty decent. To be honest I actually take the Cymbalta for fibromyalgia but it is also an anti depressant. Maybe you could try one for 30 days and if you're not happy with the results try the other. Paxil is a SSRI commonly used for depression. but Cymbalta isn't I don't think. Your dr may actually give you both. Maybe someone on here tried both and can help you better.
I would say Paxil is your best choice, I know everyone is different but I have the exact same symptoms & tried both medications & Paxil just seemed to cover all the bases for me, it helps with depression, OCD & takes care of anxiety. Granted I'm prescribed Xanax because I get severe panic attacks, but the Paxil helps about 85% of the time, I just take a Xanax if it gets real bad on me. Hope you find what works for you, best of wishes to you!
