Cymbalta

Hi All. My medication with cipralex is not working.

My doctor is thinking of putting me on cymbalta.

I have read terrible things about it, and am seeing her tomorrow.

Any good feed back on that anti depressant?

I've been taking generic Cymbalta (Duloxetine) at 60 mg daily for about 10 years, and I have had no negative side effects. There are probably "horror stories" out there for every anti-depressant because everyone is different and can potentially react differently to the drug. I personally developed extreme agitation (akathisia) when I was started on Prozac many years ago, and I just couldn't take it, so I was switched to something else that worked beautifully. Yet I have read and heard of many people who took Prozac and thought it was great.

All I can say is be mindful of any symptoms that are causing you distress when starting any new drug, and if they occur, call your doc right away for advice.

I hope it works out for you.

Everything has side effects...even things that are natural can't be taken with certain foods. I get my blood checke every several months. Ask a lot of questions. Weight the good with the bad ? Good luck
