I've taken pretty much all of the SSRI and some worked for awhile, been on Pristiq 100 MG for a year and 50 MG for 5 years prior. The 100 Mgs for the past year has really done very little for my depression , so now my PDoc stated that I needed something stronger, so hence he prescribed Cymbalta, tapering off from 100Mg to 50 MG of pristique daily and taking 30 mgs with the 50 mg of Cymbalta daily for the past 4 days, effects are too early but I did
notice alot of anxiety
, mood has not changed although I'm working and concentrating fine. I then will go to after a week to 60 mgs of Cymbalta and no pristiq which is no big deal because pristiq no longer was working even at the higher level. My eating and sleeping
is ok, but zero motivation to do anything I used to like doing, I'm not hopeless but I'm worried if this does not work for me. I do not want to go into a severe depression like I did 27 years ago. Is what I'm doing considered good advice?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I've had anxiety disorder and depression off and on since I was a teenager. No drugs, no smoking, been through CBT several times, maybe need to go back to that as well? Not sure. I'm 57 and have a good life just cannot seem to get any pleasure from it on a continual basis.
