Medication changes

Been dealing with a lot of depression and suicidal thoughts and today my pdoc decided to change my antidepressants. Taking me off lexapro and starting me on cymbalta in addition to the abilify. Kinda nervous/scared sense I’ve been told it takes 4 to 6 weeks for the cymbalta to work.

I used to gladly change meds when I was just bipolar. Look at it as something to look forward to. You’ll be better soon


It does take a while for anti depressants to start working. I was in quite a depressive patch myself last year and they started me on sertraline and that took a few weeks to get the full benefit.

Each day is a day closer to being well. Work with your doctor and stick it out you will get through it.
