The nice thing about bupropion is the fact you can take it with other antidepressants. I use to take Cymbalta with bupropion with much success. I recently switched to Pristiq with the bupropion. What sort of bad reactions did you have to the Zoloft and the Effexor. Are you prone to seizures?
If you are severly depressed, you need to do something. I don't think your doctor would precribe something he felt was going to be harmful. You may experience some side effects when you first start the Cymbalta like headache and nausea, but these side effects usually subside within the first couple weeks. The 30mg dose of Cymbalta is a low dose which is good to start with. Give it a try and see how ya do on this lower dose, then if there is any problem you can let the doctor know. If not, you can increase to the theraputic dose of 60mgs when the doctor says to.
Good luck and keep in touch,
