View Full Version : Strattera and Cymbalta combination

Good evening everyone, hope you all are having a good day.

I am on Strattera 40mg, and Cymbalta 90mg for ADHD and Major Depression. I know that Strattera is a NRI and Cymbalta and SNRI, and I was wondering if anyone has had this combination and did you see improvement? I think I am on a strange combination with these two, what can I expect? Thanks : D

Did your doctor discuss any of the reasoning behind this? That would be a great place to start.

I don't know if it's a strange combination or not, but if it is strange, then there are probably specific ideas behind it. A lazy or thoughtless doctor would likely prescribe something "tried and true", not an odd pairing that required justification.

I'm no doc but I will say this is an unusual combo because they are both basically antidepressants.
