> Okay, I'll try to keep this short!! I have MDD, have been on Zoloft, 50-150mg, Effexor XR, 75mg, and now Cymbalta, 60mg. Cymbalta alone wasn't working for me, so I'm also taking 37.5mg of Effexor XR. I seem to be going through cycles...I start feeling okay, have one or two days when I feel very good, (hopeful, energetic, happy) then crash hard. I've been questioning the Cymbalta since I first weaned off the Effexor with it. As it turns out, my ins. co. won't pay for Cymbalta. I'm relieved and afraid at the same time. Are the withdrawals really that bad after just 2 months? And I'd also like to ask any women with MDD and going through menopause if the two screw with getting the medication right. And for those of you who think all meds are bad, I'm glad you can function without them. I can't. Any and all information, encouragement, etc., is very much appreciated!!

I agree with azalea. Also, cymbalta did nothing for me. IMO Effexor is far superior and my drug of choice. PMS, Perimenopause, and menopause can exacerbate depression. It's very complex. Your hormones are like a current, ever changing and unpredictable.
