Effexor XR made me too edgy and Lexapro gives me no lift. I need something that will allow me to feel happiness and not just numbness!!! I am now on Lexapro and Lamictal (as a mood stabilizer).
Effexor XR did nothing for me at all. Wellbutrin at the max therapeutic dose, 450mg made me feel great, but is indicated as possibly inciting mania if you are bipolar. Seems like it is on a case by case basis though. If your insurance will pay for it - hard to get - Provigil is great. You will have tons of energy w/o the nervousness. You can also get it online. If i recall, it is called modifinil.
I have just started taking Cymbalta about a month in a half ago. I did not really feel any change with medication just don't feel that I am not getting more depressed. Has not sent me into mania yet but this is something you have to watch out for. Have lost weight with it though. Which I don't complain about since everything else has made me gain weight. It has helped me with my symptoms of fibromyalgia which is what they think I may have now, along with everything else. I will keep using it for at least a total of six months to give it enough time to notice if there is any change with my bipolar and possible fibromyalgia. At least so far so good.
