Wellbutrin to relieve the lingering depression I still have. That said, I see many members have this combination and find it to work fairly well which makes me optimistic! She did offer an second route completely different which would be taper me off these two drugs and give Lamictal a try. Not gaining weight is a huge part of my control and body image issues so I won't take anything that causes weight can and so far the Cymbalta and Wellbutrin have not. i don't know much about Lamictal. Open to hearing thoughts???
Yes, effexor and welbutrin are a good combo, I take it with abilify, which is another option. It worked wonders for my lingering unresolved depression. You might ask about that before you endure Cymbalta withdrawal, which is no fun in the least. I take all 3 and it was, the best thing I could have done. Everyone is different though, what works for one may not work for another. Just thought I'd put that out there. You might want to read up on it.
I seriously question the worthiness of these most expensive psychiatrists, when dealing with depression or anxiety. I strongly feel the cure is within the individual. Furthermore, I believe drugs are just that: drugs. They will make you a little bit of a zombie, and patients believe it is cure.
Time after time, I keep on hearing that psychiatrists increase the dose of anti-depressants or change of drug of the same or somewhat similar characteristics: SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors); Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors; Atypical antidepressants; Tricyclic antidepressants; MAOIs (Monoamine oxidase inhibitors); or other.
Should you wish to know more about antidepressants, I recommend reading the Oregon Health & Science University report entitled “Second Class Generation Antidepressants”. This will clearly show all antidepressants overlap in diagnostic partially or fully.
