I am on Zoloft 50mg in the A.M. and about
ready to switch to Cymbalta 30mg once per day. This is basically my idea, my PCP doesn't know squat about depression meds
in my opinion. Long story on why I still see her...live in Alaska....have depression and anxiety
from Lyme disease...no specialists up here...blah blah.
I researched Cymbalta quite a bit and it seems most Lyme patients tolerate it pretty well. My Aunt is on it and finds that it works for her, and my cousin is on Pristiq (another SNRI, but not approved to treat GAD) and it works really well for her. So that's why I want to switch because the Zoloft is doing nothing, and every time I try to increase my dose I get really irritable.
Anyway...my PCP said drop to Zoloft 25mg for 1 week and then start
the Cymbalta 30mg the next day. Does this sound right? Also she didn't have any suggestions on whether to take it A.M. or P.M. The Lyme makes me super sensitive to med changes so I want to do this as smoothly as possible. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I also take Seroquel 50mg at bedtime and Klonopin 1mg/day.
Thanks for the help!
