Is it possible to overdose on Cymbalta?

Though it may be somewhat difficult to do, it is very possible and the lasting effects from a Cymbalta-related overdose are permanent and severe, at least from what I have personally experienced. If you have previous personality disorders (which by taking this medicine already- I would assume that you would), they will be greatly altered in a negative manner. I personally advanced from typical depression/anxiety/borderline to now dealing with agoraphobic schizophrenia. The typical side effects of dizziness, confusion, overheightened senses (usually causing hallucinations)- they...

Asked in Medication and Drugs, Lexapro, Antidepressants, Cymbalta

Can Cymbalta and Lexapro be taken together?

My psychiatrist prescribed both at once. Answer No they should not be taken together why not? Cymbalta and Lexapro have SIMILAR BUT NOT EXACTLY THE SAME mechanism of action [MEANING: these active ingredients illicit the same response and the enzymes attach to the same receptors (receivers) that prevents the serotinin from leaving the brain]. Cymbalta is an SNRI (Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor) and Lexapro an SSRI (Selective-Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor). Serotonin is "BELIEVED" (not certain) to lack from people who are clinically depressed and norepi has "significant" correlation...

What is the difference between an ssri and an snri?

I found the best answers for questions regarding medication differences were found in asking a local pharmacist.

Is it safe to take a combination of 25 mg of adderall 3 times daily 60 mg of Cymbalta once daily 20 mg of corgard 2 times daily 5 mg risperdal at bedtime and 25 xanax 3 times daily?

It could be as they are all used for different things - tolerability of medication varies a lot from person to person - I am assuming the Xanax is .25 mg per day. There is a once a day xanax and adderall which may keep the levals steadier and be easier to comply with.
