  • I take a combo of Lexapro and Wellbutrin for anxiety and depression. It has changed my life. For the better.

  • I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder, severe generalized anxiety disorder, and OCD. I tried both paxil and celexa, and neither were something I could handle. Paxil made me lurch around like a drunk person, and celexa totally killed my ability to orgasm, but not my sex drive, which was a real bummer. lol I'm on Cymbalta now, and this is the best I've felt in 10 years. It does take time for the medicine to actually start working, though, which is something you'll need to keep in mind. Mine took about a month to kick in. Some people will start feeling a difference sooner, though.
