Cymbalta has worked great for me but I just got the generic. Depression is controlled but already hurting. Generic doesn't seem to be helping with pain like the Cymbalta did. Anybody else having this experience???

I tried Cimbalta but found I had urinary retention which I do not have when taking Escelatopram. I have also got chronic pain of my lower back. I take Cellebrix to alleviate this when I need to. Cymbalta covered both of my problems regarding pain and depression.
