Typically we do not add Celexa and Cymbalta as they both boost serotonin identically in your brain. Your Cymbalta does exactly what your Celexa does...but adds some norepinephrine too. In theory you should just need Cymbalta or maybe a higher dose of it... There are some rare cases when we add them, but i would certainly report your worsening and ask your doc to do something else.
