Common Questions and Answers about Can you take cymbalta and zoloft together

cymbalta

I'm worried that the combination of Cymbalta and Wellbutrin can cause this. Is the combintation of Cymbalta and Wellbutrin safe? Thanks very much!
I would advise you to talk to your doctor again and express any concerns you have. Together you can make a decision.
I want to know do any of you take zoloft, and if so (i know we are all different) but can u share you experiances both good and bad. I don't want to take a drug forever which is why i'm in therapy and off hydro's and percs any insight is welcome!!
im on 150 mg of zoloft for PTSD that triggered probably every mental thing you can think of...and 100 revia for my OCD...but theres going to be side effects with all medication...
Hope it all works out, and if you ever decide you want to make this kind of change first quit the Cymbalta as slowly as you need to before moving to another drug so you can sort out whether the problem is the old drug or the new one.
I take Zoloft and I also have Xanax in case I need them. Zoloft is for the overall everyday long term treatment. Xanax (in case you haven't tried it) is for fast relief. When my panic and anxiety kicked in and I was waiting for the Zoloft to kick in, I had Xanax and took it 2 - 3 times a day. Then I decreased it to night time so I wouldn't wake up in an attack. Now that the Zoloft has kicked in full blown I only take 1/2 pill at night or so to sleep.
(Also tried Lyrica but it caused rapid weight gain with no change in diet.) You could call the pharmacist and ask if that combination of medications are okay to take together. I'm sure the PM doctor would not have prescribed it (if he knew what you were already taking.) Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose. I was lucky and was diagnosed with my first occurrence of it. I've had it for over ten years now and have tried a variety of things to deal with it.
From personal experience i can tell you I drank on zoloft quite often and was fine. Now, everyone is different and you need to be careful but drinking in moderation will not kill you. But with anxiety issues, you should avoid alcohol. I know it is tough. I am 33 and i avoid it when people hand be a drink and it can be difficult. Good luck to you.
hi manda, you sure can be free of anxiety! you know, many patients take adderall with their zoloft, with good results. there are many depression and anxiety forums on the internet. the important thing is to keep telling your doctor how you feel, and after trying that for a while, if you feel your particular doctor is not working for you, try another, and if he doesn't work out for you, then try yet another, then another. there are a lot of fish in the sea. the sea is vast.
HEY MIC I READ YOUR MESSAGE THERE i THINK YOU SHOULD TRY ANOTHER DRUG IF YOU CAN AND SEE YOUR DOCTOR MORE FREQUENTLY IF YOU SEE A PSYCHIATRIST AS I DO I THINK YOU NEED TO TELL HIM EVERYTHING THAT'S BOTHERING YOU SOMETIMES THE MOST SIMPLEST PROBLEMS IN LIFE CAN MAKE YOU THINK THEY ARE MAJOR.
If you want, you have the option of getting a second opinion from another psychiatrist, who is a bipolar isorder expert on the meds you are on. Ask your doctor and/or your insurance how you can get a second opinion, if you aren't satified with the answers your doctor gives you. When I got better for a lot longer I was still on a lot of meds. It was more than 5. I was on 7. The last one added on was effective enough to work on it's own.
question, what if they say you have ms and you believe you dont have it and you take the avonex, what can happen long term
I think it was a good move. I was as you all know so depressed. I have been put on Zoloft, and in the process of weaning me off of Cymbalta. The Zoloft seems to be helping my mood. I was prescribed by my IM Dr. Home Health Care for a couple of weeks. This is my last week. I have had a physical therapist and a social worker also. Both have given me some direction to help get me feel better a little more hopefully every day. I do feel emotionally a bit better.
Sadly, I too have had these problems for as long as I can remember. When I was an infant, I would get into a doggie style position and bang my head so violently into the wall that I would put holes in the sheetrock. As I got a little older I would lay on my back and turn my head to and fro also violently. I had deleloped scabs and then scars on both sides of my chin. Now I am 47 years old and I lay on my side and rock my legs back and forth to fall asleep.

I 'm currently taking meloxicam, predinsone,Cymbalta,nexium,and repliva. Did I mention I have anemia? I do relate to you what a life. But I'm glad to be alive. The Spring is coming!!!! Keep your head up!!! Remember your not alone.
Oh, I'm really sorry to hear that, once they make you sick you can't ever take them, by the way since you can't take them........you can figure out the rest of that conversation. I was just like you Katie r--By the way how old are you? I felt what you feel right now. I am on methadone, never used heroin but my love of the pills was so great that I went through an outpatient detox and stayed clean for about 3 months. I was clean but didn't feel right, ya know like something was missing.

My internist/gp did the blood work to check for Rh, he then sent me to my Rhuemy who in turn diagnosed me with fibro. They work together and stay in close contact regarding my treatment. I take Tramadol, Zoloft, Flexeril, Restoril, high blood pressure meds, a statin for cholesterol, and meloxicam. I couldn't tolerate Lyrica or Neurontin, both made me very ill. My Rhuemy feels that the trauma from having had 3 major knee surgeries in exactly 7 months brought my fibro to fruitation.
You can do this tramadol warriors! You can beat this! You will do this!
Popular SSRI's include Celexa, Zoloft, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and Lexapro. SNRI's include Cymbalta, and Effexor. Brand names of triptans include Imitrex, Zomig, Frova, Maxalt, Axert, Amerge, and Relpax. The FDA recently asked the manufacturers of these types of drugs to include warning labels on their products that tell you about the potential risk of serotonin syndrome. Talk to your doctor before stopping any medication.
These meds are Cymbalta, neurontin, and or Lyrica. Together these are great for pain and anxiety. Cymbalta is also an anti-depressant so it may replace your zoloft. These drigs work great for twitching and spasms too. I am not off the medications but I feel that soon I will be on my way to be able to get off. Hope this helped and I didn't tell you anything you didn't know already. They are still drugs but are none narcotic and much less gentle on the body.
Take 3 milligrams each evening, between one-half hour and two hours before retiring for the night. S-adenosyl- L-methionine (SAM or SAMe) SAMe is an excellent supplement for depression. This amino-acid derivative is comparable to prescription antidepressants in their action, but without the side effects. SAMe has been studied for decades internationally and is approved as a prescription drug in Spain, Italy, Russia and Germany.

She also said since Wellbutrin doesn't help with the anxiety problem that I could take both Zoloft and Wellbutrin together. Now I know she's a doctor and I probably think I know more because I'm constantly reading stuff on the internet, but is that really safe? Has anybody out there been taking both and maybe has some advice. I mean it makes sense but it just seems like a lot of medicine to be taking. But then again I'm not a doctor.
I know Openmind24hrs wrote, worried about what might happen if you had to quit taking the med, and to b honest, I know the Paxil I'm taking says it's NOT easy to quit CT, BUT, in regards to psych meds like mood stabilizers/anti-depressants, would it really be that bad to take it and feel like a normal person the rest of your life??? Especially you being male, you don't have to worry about getting pregnant and needing off of it or something.
It started when I became convinced that I had contracted HIV [even though I'd hadn't ever had risky sex] because of looking symptoms up on the 'net, putting two and two together and making 5. If you suffer from health-related anxiety this is one of the worst things you can do. I've had a litany of physical symptoms; tingling, burning joints, stiffness, chest pain, headaches, panic attacks, skin rashes, fatigue, blurry vision, strange taste in my mouth etc.
I forgot to tell that I take magnesium and b6 pills 4 times a day. I read that you can take up to 1000 mg of magnesium a day.
