  • 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
  • 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.

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

  • 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!

  • 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!
