Zoloft Or Cymbalta??? Which Is More Effective

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post  

I am considering switching to cymbalta. I have been on 50mg of zoloft per day since being diagnosed with PPD in January of this year. I have heard some horror stories with both, and wondering which would be more effective long term. If anyone else suffers from this, and has used both meds...or knows someone who has switched from zoloft to cymbalta...let me know what SE's they experienced and if it was worth the switch. :hearts:

I am diagnosed with GAD and depression, once BIpolar. So I have been on almost every med possible. So lets see If I can help. WIth me, when I took Zoloft it was very ineffective, actually made me very angry. I tapered and changed to Effexor then to Cymbalta. Cymbalta worked very slowly on me, taking about 1 month to see any dramatic effect. Over the month, gradually I started to improve. Now I feel great, no depression or anxiety. No side effects for me, maybe a little upset stomach at first but it went away. Dont get me wrong it does work and works well, it just takes time and maybe a little dosage tinkering. I am on 120mg a day. Hope this helps.

That's pretty quick in the world of antidepressants! It often takes a full 2 months to notice a significant change. Glad to hear Cymbalta is working so well for you. Hopefully H3 will have success with it, too!
