Ok, um, what do you have?

Straterra was first tried as an antidepressant, and failed. It's an ADD med.

Cymbalta's for people who have bipolar mania, since you need to combine an antidepressant with an antipsychotic to avoid inducing mania in these patients through the use of an antidepressant alone. It's Zyprexa and Prozac combined.

If you have bipolar, you already take so many meds, I can't see the benefit to reducing two meds into one since you already have to take so many already. Plus, if you get the two separately, you save money-- Prozac itself is generic!
