While I was reading the Reviews, I was that Some people have lost all interest in Sex while on this; This has happened to me too. However, I've only been on it for 3 weeks so far, so maybe it just needs to get regulated into my system or something. But It does help during the day. The 1st week, I felt l ... Show Full Comment

This is by far the only Antidepressant that has ever worked for me(and I've tried many). When I first began taking Cymbalta, I had frequent yawning and an amplified gag-reflex.

Comment:
I am bi-polar and suffer from depression and lots of pain. My shrink and I talked about Cymbalta, and with the other pain meds I am on (Lortab 10/500 and Morphine) and decided that this was okay to try.
