Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta and wellbutrin together


Avatar m tn m worried that the combination of Cymbalta and Wellbutrin can cause this. Is the combintation of Cymbalta and Wellbutrin safe? Thanks very much!
1345272 tn?1276400328 I do think if you keep going with Wellbutrin and Cymbalta you will be doing just fine. Wellbutrin might be unpleasant when taking the first doses, just like any other antidepressant but the side-effects will eventually go away as your body adapts to the medicines. If after 1 month taking both drugs you don't see any improvements then you might consider trying something else but seriously Cymbalta+Wellbutrin is really supposed to give you energy and make you function more normally.
Avatar m tn In July 2008 I switched over from Zoloft and Invega to Wellbutrin and Cymbalta. At that time, these were my only medications. In August 08, when I stood up from my chair, my legs had terrible tremors. They were so bad that I had to hold onto the desk. This still happens today. I also experience leg tremors when descending stairs - but not going up. I get minor tremors while going from a standing to a sitting position. My right hand has started to tremor - kind of fast but mild.
Avatar m tn i have been on 4 days coming off of remeron 6 weeks ago and last week for 2 days my pcp put me on wellbutrin then 2 days later my psychiatrists put me on cymbalta, leg and arm weakness,sweats is this from going from one ad to another and how much longer will i have to suffer i put my legs up in the air on 2 pillows i also take 3 x a day klonopin ,5mg 2 in the morning and one at bed time with the cymbalta please repond ?
Avatar m tn I would switch gradually to Cymbalta and see what happens rather than being on both. As for the Wellbutrin added to the mix it could help with libido since dopamine is in play. Both Zoloft and Wellbutrin sounds like something you could try before getting on Cymblata. I don't think you shoud mix Cymbalta with Wellbutrin personally.
Avatar f tn I use to take cymbalta and it worked then all of a sudden i was feeling like i was having anxiety attacks from taking it, my doctor put me on that and wellbutrin, i still felt that way, then he put me on 300 mg of wellbutrin and stopped the cymbalta it wasnt working so yesterday i took my cymbalta and wellbutrin again and started having anxiety attacks bad again, can that have been what caused the anxiety attacks again?
Avatar m tn nt cause me any problems in that area was Cymbalta. Wellbutrin and Cymbalta are in a different classes than the SSRI's so maybe that's why they don't effect the sex drive.
Avatar f tn Cymbalta does not interact with Wellbutrin, Klonopin or Synthroid. But before taking Cymbalta, you must establish that you're not allergic. You broke out in a rash while on Lamictal and Cymbalta, so you're likely allergic to one of them, if not both.
Avatar n tn I have come off of a lot of my medications. My final meds are Wellbutrin, Trazodone and Cymbalta. The Wellbutrin is suppose to take the place of the cymbalta. After horrible withdrawal, I came completely off of Cymbalta last week. I became so depressed that I couldn't stand to talk, much less move. All I wanted to do was sleep and be left alone. When I did interact, I was grizzly mean.

1258539 tn?1293840202 Overall I think Cymbalta is one of the best medication out there but this have a cost. Cymbalta cost is outrageous and Cymbalta is very hard to stop. I stopped cold-turkey after using it for only 5 months and I had brain zaps for a little more than a month. The withdrawal was quite severe but it is expected with all potent powerful antidepressant.
Avatar n tn The average dose for Cymbalta is 60mg per day, and although some doctors do prescribe it 120mg per day...there is no evidence to prove that it helps any more than the 60 mg per day. The maximim dose for Prozac is 80mg per day so you're still below the highest dosage on that one. I doubt your doctor will increase the Cymbalta anymore, and if he tries to...find another doctor! Best wishes.
Avatar f tn i am thinkin about having my doctor start me on cymbalta or wellbutrin.. i have tried everything else and it didnt work that well for me.. those two are the only ones i know that have norepenephrine.. i dont know if i spelled that right... i was wondering if anyone had any bad reactions or anything good to say about either one.. and if it seem to make a difference with the serotonin and norepenphrine.. compared to just serotonin..
Avatar n tn how long have you been doing this? I am on 275 effexor and 150 long acting wellbutrin and my starch cravings do me in, So i will research if cymbalta could substitute for the wellbutrin which acts differently that effexor and the cocktail is otherwise acceptable. But if you know somethinghere about cymbalta v. Wellbutrin, I'd love to know.
Avatar n tn if i could try cymbalta, and he put me on 30mg cymbalta 2 x daily. I would like to get off the Wellbutrin and be on only one effective AD at a time...Can I wean off Wellbutrin safely and continue cymbalta? Thank you for any help yyou can offer...
Avatar f tn I was on Cymbalta for 5 years and it just stopped working. I like my Cymbalta and had very little side effects with it for many years but all of a sudden I started getting headaches and anxiety, sleeping all day and missing days at a time from work. They have switched me to Cypralex now and I am quite concerned it won't do as much for me. It has only been a few days so I cannot determine the effects quite yet, except that I have the shakes really bad.
Avatar m tn After taking Wellbutrin 150mg 2x daily and my Zoloft 100mg together fro the first time I woke disoriented and dizzy Just was wondering if I should of started the wellbutrin one a day to get used to it.
Avatar m tn To test things out, I weaned myself off of the drug around January and remained only on 60mg of Cymbalta. I suffer from depression and anxiety. The Cymbalta (I used to be on Zoloft) is really not all that by sex drive, fatigue, and general apathy. The combination treatment with budeprion has proven wonderful, as it helps offset the side effects of the SSRIs and SNRIs. When I was off of the budeprion, my blood pressure went down, and I felt more calm--almost sedated.
Avatar n tn Were you on Wellbutrin first and did well on it? Or, were you on Cymbalta first? If you really think Cymbalta is the med causing your anxiety you need to work with your Dr as far as tapering off it. Getting off it can be done. I took it myself and was able to taper with my Drs help until I was completely off it.
Avatar n tn I have been on Wellbutrin off and on for 10 years, on Cymbalta for 4-5 years and Geodon for 4 years. I have been on Geodon 40 mg at times, but recently for the last year or so, on 20 mg. Recently, my psychiatrist bumped me up to 40 mg again. It seems like the last time I was on 40 mg, I also had anxiety and obsessive thoughts. I was just wondering if anyone else had the same experience with Geodon, since that is the only thing that has changed recently.
Avatar n tn I've never taken Cymbalta- but I have taken Wellbutrin and I felt a sense of euphoria while taking the Wellbutrin. I don't recall feeling dizzy on the medication so you should contact your doctor and give them your symptoms. Seems to me that you may be having some sort of reaction to it so your doctor should be aware of what you're experiencing. All they may have to do is adjust the strength/dosage of the Wellbutrin. Hope this helps and good luck.
Avatar f tn Rob called this morning @ 9:06 (msg: love you miss you), 9:13 (msg: love you miss you), and 9:46, when I picked up, still in bed. Went to bed at 2 last night, stayed up watching VH1 (Rock of Love Bus reunion, for the 2nd time, and second to last episode of Love of Ray J, which doesn't really even interest me).
Avatar m tn I was on both welbutrin and cymbalta and the withdrawal was awful,,,,,have been off 3 yrs and will tough it out, I drove my entire family nuts!
Avatar n tn I recently discovered that a toke a day seems to help my behavior patterns and just seems to help with overall OCD. I take Wellbutrin and Cymbalta daily. I dont drink any alcohol, I'm extremely fit, eat well.........etc. Is it ok to have a little hit on a daily basis?
