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.

I have been on several medications for Depression, but Cymbalta has worked for me. Some of the other drugs made me suicidal and just didn't work. Cymbalta has saved my life. I reviewed the Drug side effects and I am lucky to not have any problems with Cymbalta. This drug works great for me. i have been taking it now for 7 years.
