I'm sorry to hear the news. Wellbutrin doesn't seem to being do much more than a cup of coffee with a nice headache to go with.

I saw my pdoc today, first time in a few months, and she wants me to try Cymbalta. I told her I would but want some sort of back up plan. She said we would try some "treatment resistant" meds in 6 weeks if I don't like it.

I know you had no luck with Cymbalta, but I have a few questions. Any weird startup feelings? Also, she said to take at bedtime because some patients complain of sleepiness? What was your experience? Did you stop it because of side effects, or simply because it didn't work for you?
