I have tried many kinds of antidepressants, which never really worked for me. Three years ago my doctor prescribed Cymbalta for me and within four weeks, I was happy, I was literally a new person and it just felt good to feel normal. I tell everyone that it is my miracle drug. It really is. I love it and I'm grateful that I can finally take somthing that works for me. Very very grateful actual ... Show Full Comment

I was taking this medication and it helped me get out of bed and back to work, but that's about it. Once I started taking this I couldn't go anywhere though, not to the grocery store or anywhere that there were alot of people or noise, I couldn't handle it.

I didn't realize how many physical side effects there were with depression. When I was placed on Cymbalta (after many failed attemps with other treatments) the physical side effects became almost non-existant within the first few weeks. I have now been on Cymbalta for over a year. I think this is one that can really help me.

Comment:
I have been on Cymbalta for about 8 months now after being on 150mg of Effexor XR (450mg Effexor XR) 5 years ago but I tapered down myself. But NEVER totally get off of it if you have been at a high dosage for a year or more, I thought the world was coming to an end, crying etc. Then I took a 75mg from my Psy and in a couple hours I was ok. The Cymbalta I started 8 months ago was a 60mg pill by ... Show Full Comment
