I wonder how's this combo? Is it strong or dangerous? And do you need less ritalin when you start taking cymbalta cause cymbalta also raises norepinephrine? I think I will try cymbalta. I could also try effexor but I lean more towards cymbalta.

I've taken cymbalta and stimulants like Ritalin and adderall for 10 years with no issues.

I've found that when i switched from prozac to cymbalta, that I need to take less of my stimulant medication. I take 90 mg of Cymbalta a day, which may cause a larger effect.

Hi,
I am thinking about trying cymbalta but I'm not sure.
I have ocd and I don't know if cymbalta helps against this.
On the other hand nothing I tried so far (lexapro,anafranil,tianeptine,wellbutrin) worked either. :(
I am starting to think that maybe no antidepressant will work.
They all make huge claims and promises and then they don't keep
them.

For example they say ssri help against anxiety but they don't make me
any less anxious.
