I wouldn't question it just enjoy it. Maybe too much norepenphrine. What is your normal functioning level like? Phillipa

Sometimes antidepressants make people more anxious and depressed.

If you're bipolar, the Cymbalta may have been destabilizing your mood.

Of those three to choose one to get rid of? You're on half the typical maintenance dosage of both tegretol and lamictal. Discontinue the one you tolerate least and double the other just to be safe and take it along with Klonopin?

However, logic and reasoning says continue to take both mood stabilizers and that Klonopin is more of a "luxury", however. But, I know how it goes, I feel you when it comes to taking it. ;)
