Take cymbalta (duloxetine) 60, lamictal 100, tegretol 600, klonopin 2.5 for OCD and mood. Is this a safe combination. And is 60 the usual dose for cymbalta (duloxetine)?

Combo is safe. Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60 mg is the average dose, but can go up to 120 mg per day. Your doctor is juggling a lot of drug-drug interaction potentials, but the doses all look good. Glad you had the allergy testing. Sounds like you are getting very knowledgeable and competent care. Avoid alcohol and grapefruit because they will both greatly effect the blood levels of your medications. Enjoy the weekend! by the wayyour profile says that you are on luvox. Read more...
Seems fine. These dosages seem to be workable although it is an intense combination of mood stabilizers. The dose of duloxetine at 60 mg is at the usual amount for the treatment of a mood disorder although higher dosages are thought to be potentially helpful for the treatment of chronic pain. Stay safe!

Since being on cymbalta (duloxetine) 60 mg. 2 months very hyper...Also take tegretol -klonopin-lamictal...If I go back to 30 how long til steady state. Is this rare?

Cymbalta (duloxetine) hypo mania. This is not rare at all. We are learning to rely less on antidepressants in bipolar disorder because of this. Antidepressants, especially snri's like Cymbalta and Effexor may cause more mood switching than most. Wellbutrin is said to cause it the least. The issue is not the steady state, but whether this effect will continue even at 30 mg a day. Latuda (lurasidone) is approved for treatment of BP depression. Read more...
Hyper on cymbalta (duloxetine) From your other meds, i suspect you might have a bipolar spectrum disorder which antidepressants can trigger mania or mixed states with hyperness with depression.

In addition to tegretol, lamictal, cymbalta (duloxetine) my dr. Wants me to take 1mg of klonopin 3 xdaily. Does this mean that a person has serious stress/anxiety?

Not necesstsartly. Your doc is trying to find a combination of meds to control your sx. Klonopin (clonazepam) is safe ; effective for anxiety ; also helps mood stabilization. Read more...
I guess ... ...Your regimen of tegretol, etc is not helping enough for your anxiety, so your doc is suggesting you take the Klonopin on a regular basis. I agree with dr jacobson that you may wish to discuss some of the atypicals, especially Latuda (lurasidone) which may have a better se profile. But even so, if you are already being treated for diabetes, your drs. Just need to work together. Read more...

Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60/tegretol 400 /lamictal 100/klonopin 1.0 at 9am. Missed dose of lamictal yesterday. Did not feel so anxious. ..Is this possible?

Yes. It takes a while, missing lots of doses before the symptom you were trying to relieve will reappear. It sounds like you're on it as a mood stabilizer. Just take the medicine when you realize you've missed it and take the next dose on the same scheduled dose. Read more...

Can Cardizem 120, lamictal 100, tegretol 200 and klonopin. 5, and Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60 all be taken in the morning with breakfast. It would make my life easier?

Need more specifics. There are different types of these medications, such as long, intermediate, or short acting cardizem.
