chewbacca Posted October 13, 2006 Share Posted October 13, 2006 Hi I am going to try and make my messages more sensible. I was wondering if anyone takes cymbalta for anxiety and obsessing over things but gets sleepy from it? If you do then does anyone take wellbutrin with cymbalta? I ask because I feel like a moron for giving up on cymbalta after a couple weeks when it took my anxiety away. I gave up on it because I was very tired from it and I am tired of being tired from all the crazy meds. i know my problems are not nearly as bad as some peoples or that my side effects are not nearly as bad as what some meds cause. But being tired sucks when you have a demanding job, school, and family. I am able to function but i get tired and take naps which takes time away from my family. I am at my wits end with this and figure I know i need to just take something and keep taking it for months. my med history is prozac - made me tired, sexual issues, and shakiness, stuck with this for a long time and tried it a couple times. serzone - didnt help paxil - terrible for me anafranil - terrible effexor - felt lousy and did not work for me celexa - took for a few months at highest dose and did not work lexapro - trying now for second time but it is making my anxiety worse wellbutrin - ca not even take it for the fucking exhaustion that the lexapro is causing me because I am so anxious, and obsessiong over all of this that has been going on for so long. i hate getting back the comments about not sticking with it but i know that is my problem i have another appointment monday and i am leaning towards going back to the cymbalta and just taking it for a few weeks without wellbutrin to see if the doctor is correct in that the cymbalta does not make you as tired because it works on the N stuff. but it did make me tired so maybe i just quit to soon. they wanted me to take 30mg and then go to 60mg after a couple weeks, after just a few days my anxiety was about gone, not the obsessing but the anxiety was much better. right now I am using more klonopin then I have in a long time. so if the cymbalta works for the anxiety then does anyone have luck with it working for obsessing or ocd? If it makes you tired or sexually messed up does anyone take wellbutrin with it? thaks for all your help Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
