  • I have had been taking Cymbalta over the last 10 years off and on (mostly off). My experience has been that although it has been beneficial for my symptoms (anxiety & depression), the physical side effects are too much to handle long term.

    A few months
    Depression
  • It was effective for fighting my depression, but weaning off of it is a very slow process
  • I take it at night to avoid drowsiness and it helps with pain during sleep.

    A couple weeks
    Fibromyalgia
  • It helps me with depression as will as my nerve pain I have down my left leg.

    Depression
  • Start small to ease potential side effects. You can open the capsule and take half, to start, and then ease up over a couple of days. Don't be discouraged!

    Depression
  • I haven't had trouble with Cymbalta, but if I forget to take it for a few days I really feel it. Terrible nausea, clamminess, anxiety, etc. Set alarms as a reminder!

    Depression
  • This is an extremely difficult medicine to withdraw from. For that reason alone this should be farther down the list of meds you try if you are trying to find something that works for anxiety or depression.

  • Been using it for over two years. I have side effects when I stop using it for over a day but in general have never felt any improvement.
