I have been taking GENERIC Cymbalta for three weeks. It is not as effective as Cymbalta, which I have been taking for over seven years. While taking the generic brand, I felt like I had been taken off Cymbalta and prescribed a completely different drug. My depression and anxiety increased leading me to have difficulty with my every day activities. I am now back on Cymbalta and feeling better.

I have gained 13 pounds, have trouble remembering almost anything, and have no desire to do anything at home after work. I cannot make myself get up and clean, cook, or do bookwork in the evenings. Very frustrating.
