    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.

    This medicine makes me feel good. However, the constipation and weight gain discourage me.

    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.
