I'm currently taking Wellbutrin but I have back surgery in May and I'm having horrible. Horrible nerve pain so I'm also taking Nurotin. The nerve pain is getting better but I'm not sleeping at night because the pain is so bad when I try to relax. So my doctor suggested that I may want to try taking Cymbalta in place of the Wellbutrin & Nurotin.
I would like to know if anyone else is taking Cymbalta and has it helped with the depression? I have tried Zoloft but I gained weight like crazy and my sex drive non existent. I hate that I keep having to try new medications but with all this nerve pain it makes it very difficulty to play with my kids, get to the gym and I'm really getting down in the dumps. I'm to the point where I don't even want to leave the house because I just don't want to do anything. It's really get bad. They told me it would be 6-8 months, possibly more before I'm feeling 100% and that is just for the nerve pain. So the longer it goes on, the more depressed I get. = (
I hope someone has some ideas, suggestions or comments on the Cymbalta or any other medications you have tried.
