GG,

I saw that you wrote on another thread that you took cymbalta but it stopped working for you. i am currently taking cymbalta and have in the past taken an antidepressant then it stopped working and had to switch. it was a difficult period. I was just wondering how long you were on it before you experienced a reduction in its effects?

cpt, I am trying to remember, but it wasn't the greatest time in my life and I kind of gave up on a lot of things then. I think I was only on it 6-8 weeks. I was off everything for 6 months and things got bad this month, so I went back to the doctor and am now on Wellbutrin; hoping that goes well....gg

I hope things go well for you too, gg. i was previously on zoloft and it started not to work as well, but it crept up on me and i didn't notice until i was neck deep in depression. I am now watching over my should for it to happen again.

cpt, well I thought "I" could just handle this all on my own, a pride thing, I am not sure. I was diagnosed with major depression two weeks ago and the doctor really wants me to give Wellbutrin a year! Yikes!!! I go next week for a followup and he may add another drug with it since I do have a lot of anxiety. To be honest, I hate this...I don't want to take anything. I want to "conquer" this myself, but I guess I haven't done a good job of that, so I will try again. Good luck, yep, know about that depression creeping up on me.

are you going to psychiatrist to manage your meds? i ask b/c a suggestion of a year seems very long. it should be a kinda check-as-you-go sorta thing. like one month at a time, then 2 months, then 4 months. i also take something at night for anxiety--and that has made a big difference. much more than the antidepressant alone.

and about the pride thing---"well I thought "I" could just handle this all on my own"---you are, you sought help. and that is something to be proud of.

Thanks cpt...I did seek help with the help and love of a few good friends. I am going to my medical doctor for this. I guess he is seeing that I have been very depressed for a year now? Not sure, but I do have to go every month once I get going here. What do you take for anxiety at night?

i used to take amytriptylene, but it made me way too tired when i changed to cymbalta, so now i take nortriptylene--it helps quiet my head when it is time to sleep.
