Is There Any Difference Between Effexor And Cymbalta?
Posted 23 February 2011 - 09:54 PM
I've tried Wellbutrin (allergic) and Zoloft - neither worked. I'm desperate for relief from my severe depression.

It never hurts in my idea to get a second opinion as I want the very best help I can get.
Perhaps others more knowledgeable than I will chime in that I am incorrect, and if so i apologize, but I do think effexor and cymbalta work in different ways....
Good Luck and best wishes.

Standard disclaimer that I'm not a doctor/qualified in any way and that this is all speculation/stuff I've read on the internet though. But I'd imagine there will probably be a difference between the effects of 75mg of Effexor and the standard 60mg dose of Cymbalta.
Dx: Bipolar II/III (antidepressant induced mixed states/hypomania)
Rx: 400mg lamotrigine (Lamictal), 800 mg/day of carbamazepine (Tegretol XR), 600 mg/day Zyban (bupropion/Wellbutrin SR)
Failed meds: Cymbalta, citalopram (Celexa), agomelatine (Valdoxan), lofepramine, mirtazapine (Remeron), sertraline (Zoloft), aripiprazole (Abilify), quetiapine (Seroquel), trimipramine (Surmontil)
Partial-success: nortriptyline/Pamelor, moclobemide (Aurorix/Manerix), reboxetine
