Vyvanse and Cymbalta

I started taking Cymbalta 60 mg for depression, before starting Vyvanse.

I was doing very well, depression wise. My moods were more under control and I didn't feel depress anymore.

Now my doc started me on Vyvanse 20 mg (will switch to 30 mg in 1 week) and it's like all my depression symptoms are back So Vyvanse gives me a boost for a few hours but before taking it and after it wears off, I feel worse than before I started to get treated for my depression.

Any ideas?

Re: Vyvanse and Cymbalta

Maybe that type of amphetamine or the time release isn't suitable for you?

Re: Vyvanse and Cymbalta

Are you taking the Vyvanse in addition to the Cymbalta, or did you stop the Cymbalta and start Vyvanse?
