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 itself...no 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.
