Comment:
After ten years and many different antidepressants, I finally found a great combination: 450 mg. Wellbutrin XL & 60 mg. Cymbalta per day. It would be VERY expensive without insurance, but I haven't had any depressive days (where before I couldn't get out of bed and was tired all of the time) since beginning Cymbalta. The first day of taking it, I felt nauseous, but after that nothing ... Show Full Comment
