I gave this medication 6 weeks and after seeing no improvement, have been given instructions to wean off it and move onto the next antidepressant. I have several "issues" I'm dealing with, one of them ADD. Cymbalta seemed to overpower the Adderall to the point my head was foggy again (couldn't concentrate).
