    I'm still very unsure of how I like Cymbalta. I switched off of Zoloft 100 mg because it was not helping with my depression. I began with cymbalta 20 mg and when my doctor increased to 40 mg I had severe mood swings and felt out of control. Major anxiety, panic attacks...etc. I decreased the dosage to 20 mg again and have found a good balance I believe. It hasn't been a miracle drug l ... Show Full Comment

    I have the dreaded "sexual side effects", unable to orgasm (never a problem before), less desire, etc. I also had the numbness, tingling and burning stomach. It really helped my mood but I can't take the side effects. Dr is gradually switching me to Lexapro.

    Comment:
    After ten years and many different antidepressants, I finally found a great combination: 450 mg. Wellbutrin XL & 60 mg. Cymbalta per day. It would be VERY expensive without insurance, but I haven't had any depressive days (where before I couldn't get out of bed and was tired all of the time) since beginning Cymbalta. The first day of taking it, I felt nauseous, but after that nothing ... Show Full Comment

    YOU SHOULD TAPER OFF INSTEAD OF STOPPING ALL AT ONCE, IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL TERRIBLE IF YOU STOP ALL AT ONCE

    I have suffered from depression for most of my life. I attempted suicide after my son was born and was put on Lexapro. I fell like the Lexapro did absolutely nothing for me, except make me angry. Cymbalta has been like a godsend. I have only been on it about a month but I have felt such a remarkable change in myself. I am happier, have more energy and have an overall better view on life. I&# ... Show Full Comment
