    Swims curious about the order of taking 2 particular drugs... This morning I took my Ritalin only, and a few hours later realized Swim that Swim forgot to take his nightly Cymbalta....Swim popped 2 20mg since it was his day off and is about to snort another 20mg. what swim is getting at is not taking the Cymbalta until way later at night seems to have a much better euphoric effect? and Actually works great for concentration which Swim has None of off Ritalin.

    So, In short,

    1.Does Cymbalta dull the effects of Ritalin.
    2Is snorting/sniffing Ritalin worth it or better than ingesting it? Thanks all. Patiently awaiting... ;)

    Ohh yea and Swim is also on 150mg of Welbutrin. Does Wellbutrin help as Swim as heard from quite a few people to enhance the Ritalin effect?

    Re: Cybalta + Ritalin, Would Cymbalta Cancel out the ritalin effects?

    Swim is far from a expert but..............
    Sounds like this combo could lead one to some seritonin regulation problems,at higher doses anyway.
    Swim is very interested in what effect can be manifested by snorting Cymbalta/duloxetine HCI.And at what mg do swiy find it effective?

    edit:cymbalta is a snri.....the n is norepinephrine,swim is unsure how that complicates the effects.
    There are alot of common medications that can cause serious side effects.......even death.Everything from certain OTC herbal products,DXM,and opiates.Talk to swims chemist and he should cross check the list for swim..............


    stay safe........bige

    Yea, Swim knows better than to snort Cybalta. thats pointless. But back on track to my questions, Swim take 60mg Cymbalta that is an SSRI, SNRI which is why SWIM is asking, would Cymbalta Regulate the Ritalin which effects the Same areas?

    XxGiOxX added 1 Minutes and 20 Seconds later...

    Im just asking about timing. Swim hasn't taken the Cymbalta yet Fearing it would Regulate the Ritalin that was ingested.

    XxGiOxX added 2 Minutes and 29 Seconds later...

    And when Swim says Regulate swim means, the euphoric and regular effects of Ritalin Would go away sooner. If thats the case, Swim will take their Cymbalta at night instead of at the same time with the Ritalin. =)
