I was just diagnosed with bi-polar about 5 months ago. I am 30 and it came as quite a shock to me. Doc says I suffer from mixed episodes and severe depression episodes. During these episodes I get SEVERE anxiety where I feel like I am going crazy and crawling out of my skin. I never get mania (I don't think) Maybe a little hypomania sometimes- (not sure) Anyways, my doc has me on 200 mg. of Lamictal and 150 of zoloft, and 1mg of clonazepam as needed. I was on 50 mg. of zoloft & .25 xanax as needed for 8 years until this change. I still have the depression but not near as bad as it use to be. My doc wants me to try Cymbalta. Any suggestions if I should try it instead of the zoloft??? I am so scared to try something new and go backwards. thank you for responding.
