Hi

I was diagnosed with GAD (and some panic) which was the main feature of OCD like worry- I have been on Cymbalta for 4 months, increasing to 90mg 2 months ago- I thought I had cracked it so to speak until travel, a previous stresser, caused me to feel worse to the point that even on my return home, my old panic came back with a vengance- I feel better now for some reason.

1. Is it normal to expect some kind of occasional relapse even on a theraputic dose, and then to get back to feeling better as if the relapse never occured?
2. I believe increasing to 120mg Cymbalta may help- could it be I havent yet got the best dose and this is reason for the relapse
3. Can Lyrica or another drug be added to Cymbalta to increase efficiency

Thanks

1. Yes. 2. Possibly. 3. Low dose Risperdal usually added to augment.

Is it ok to take supplements such as Vitamin D, Zinc, Magnesium and Probiotic alongside Cymbalta to see if they help
