Unless it has another brand name, I have never taken Wellbutrin BUT I have taken Cymbalta - with drastic results..
I have fibromyalgia, and diabetic poly-neuropathies, my endo prescribed cymbalta for me for DPN pain and it did help. I took it for about a year. However, I also developed a disastrous gamboling problem. After stopping the pill the gamboling problem went away in 2-3 months time.
If you have ANY issues with addictive behavior, OCD anything at all that causes you to do become Even a little obsessive (even House cleaning) BE VERY CAUTIOUS in using Cymbalta.
Good luck my friend.
