Comment:
I suffered from Major Depression with suicidal tendencies and anxiety. Cymbalta was the magic pill allowing my symptoms to settle down, stopping anxiety and thoughts of suicide. Results have been fantastic, insomnia is a problem,taking the drug in the early afternoon seems to control the sleeplessness.

Comment:
I have fibromyalgia and was diagnosed with depression after my twins were born. I was then diagnosed with anxiety after one of my twins passed away suddenly two years ago. I have to say that Cymbalta is great for my pain and depression, but I have had to have Klonopin for my anxiety.

I have been taking for about 2 months but in the last few days symptoms are back. I think I need to ask for an increase. Am currently at 60mg.

Comment:
Tried Wellbutrin, the tremor was unbearable. With Cymbalta I still have my sex drive (not always orgasmic, though). I'm calm and happy on the outside, but still feel angry on the inside (at times). The main side effect: "I am soooo hot, and sweaty while sleeping." Unfortunately, not all the pain has gone away, but the depression has!
