Cymbalta works on both serotonin and norepenephrine. So the added neurotransmitter might make a big difference.

Bulldog, cymbalta also works on dopamine, it works on all three neurotransmittors.

Happyflower, that is a big dose to start with, I started on 30 and worked up to 60. But I guess your pdoc knows what he is doing.

Cymbalta is working for me (with Wellbutrin) and most things don't work for me (except MAOIs to date). I hope you find the same relief I did.

I too am taking Cymbalta, and I think it's great.

What dose of Wellbutrin are you taking? How are the side effects with Cymbalta?

By the way, my pdoc started me on 60 and I was fine. Just a bit sweaty at night!
