Linkadge and Phillipa,

Thanks for responding.

I haven't tried escitalopram. If the Lamictal doesn't work, maybe I'll suggest it since Celexa worked before it pooped out.

Yes, I've wondered about the Cymbalta for the past few years causing an uptick in my heart rate. When I was diagnosed the cardio-electrophysiologist told me he was certain that the Cymbalta didn't cause my condition. How he knows that, I don't know. He was a very brilliant guy and his explanations sometimes went over my head. My current pdoc would like to take me off of the Cymbalta ultimately for the reason that it may be increasing my heart rate and I sweat uncontrollably on it. (I agree with him.) So, we'll wait and see what, if anything, the Lamictal does. I just took my first 25mg dose last night and in 2 weeks I go up to 50mg.

Phillipa, yeah, I have to be quite careful about what I take. I'm on quite a combination of meds. I hate it, honestly. Keeping track of all of the pills and refills and paying the copays isn't fun. At least I have health insurance. I'd be destroyed if I didn't.
