Has anyone taken this combination and, if so, what were the results?
 
Thank you for your time and take care,
Jon

Sorry FamilyGuy . . . I have no experience with those. I did find a site once where people would comment on certain drugs. If I can find it again, I'll post it.

OK . . . I Googled the two words and came up with quite a few sites you could try if you want:

http://www.google.com/search?q=Wellbutrin+Cymbalta&sourceid=firefox&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

I did not see the one I was looking for though . . . and my time is tight the next couple days. I hope you find some info in those pages.

It would be nice though if someone from HW could tell you their experience with these.

Blessings!

Sooooo sorry Jon. I am very sensative to new meds too. I usually check with doc or pharmacist to see if I can split the pills or start on a smaller does and build up to the prescribed amount . . . A lot of those types of side effects go away after your body adjusts . . . but if you have chrons or other chronic gastro probs it might just be a no no for you. Sounds like you really had it rough. I hope it was a sample and not a full prescription that you paid for and can't use.

I am starting out on half a dose for a week then the doc wants me to up it to the full dose. I was on Cymbalta aone a few months back and it didn't seem to help me much, so we moved on to another. When I was on it earlier I didn't experience near this level of side effects. Just took the second dose about 2 hours ago. Judging by yesterday I have about 2 hours til I "blow."

Thankfully they are samples that I got and not a prescription. Thank you for your thoughts.
Jon

Not brave, just desperate. I'm doing better than I was on Thursday. Just moderate nausea and cramping--nothing I can't handle. Now I can wait and hope that I see some improvement. Thanks for the prayers. :-)
