    Hi!

    I got your response to my post and was wondering what the difference was for you between being just on wellbutrin and that + the effexor.

    Thanks.

    You know, I was never just on Wellbutrin. I started the Effexor first and felt better, but not all the way. I never felt really joyful. She added the Wellbutrin and I felt so much better. I actually thought I was going manic when it kicked in, but someone I worked with told me that this was how I was supposed to feel!

    btw, now I take Cymbalta (120mg) instead of the Effexor. It's the same kind of ad as Effexor--works on serotonin and norepinephrine--plus it's supposed to help with pain. Lots of doctors are prescribing it for FM patients--even the ones who don't have depression.

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions!

    Francie
