... Hi, sorry that your having such a rough time. Changing meds can make things really hard and it can take a while for the meds to kick in. The old med has to get completely out of your system and the new meds have to have time to kick in. Cymbalta takes a few weeks to fully start working. Lamictal takes several weeks to get up to your full therapeutic dose, having said that... (1 replies)
