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

I took Cymbalta for depression and pain and it kept me sleeping all day and made my depression worse. It did however help with pain of fibromyalgia but my Dr. said it was the worst drug for me to be on for that. Sleeping all day, how could I feel any pain anyway. good luck to all of those who it is helping...

After two years on Cymbalta I was looking to increase dosage from 40mg daily to 60mg daily but the cost is prohibitive.

Comment:
1 year on Cymbalta has not helped. Persistant insomnia, blurred vision, and sexual side effects were the main side effects while taking this medication. I wish I had been informed of the HARSH experience my body would go through when I decided to discontinue it's use. Currently, I am "tapering" down the dosage with the end goal....NO CYMBALTA!! Nasty drug!!!

I was suffering from major depression and anxiety until I started taking Cymbalta.I did put on a few pounds because my appetite increased but it was better than feeling depressed and anxious.
