My current combination:

AM: Cymbalta 60mg

PM: BuproprionXL 450mg, Clonazepam 0.5-1mg, Trazodone 25mg

Now he's adding Lamictal saying that if I respond well to it, we might be able to eliminate the Cymbalta. I don't mind that. I think the culprit in my uncontrollable sweating and lack of sexual desire/functioning is Cymbalta. I've been taking it for a few years and dealing with the side effects because it seemed to be working well with the BuproprionXL. Now I'm depressed again and he's trying a new direction.

I don't think he was really adamant about bringing me down to one medication. He was just talking about how it's difficult for him to tell what is doing what in my combination since when I started with him, I was already on a mix of medications. He did talk about the trend toward monotherapy. My depression lately is affecting the emphasis I place on other people's words. I tend to find things in what others say and magnify their importance and sometimes I'll miss their main point. It's this darn lack of focus and brain fog.

Thanks for the responses.
