I need some advice here.
I have MDD. I have been out of work most of the year honestly. Finally, I was prescribed cymbalta.
30 mg/day first 2 weeks
then onto 60 mg per day
That left me feeling great. I felt normal and happy, able to work well, get along with my daily life...
Then a month and a half later, I got some bad news, and I am back in full depression mode again.
Went to the primary care. Gives me lamictal to start w cymbalta. I was allergic so stopped that.
Now, the psych has upped the cymbalta to 90 mg/day leading to 120 mg/day and added Wellbutrin XL 150mg/day for 2 weeks, the onto 300 mg/day.
I just started the new meds today. Just wondering if anyone out there has a similar condition/medication and has it worked for you?
I don't believe I am classic Bipolar, because I never am manic. I am either "normal" or majorly depressed.
Hope you can help.
