  • 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.
    Taken for: Depression
    Duration taken: A few months
  • It was effective for fighting my depression, but weaning off of it is a very slow process

  • 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!

  • I started taking it with breakfast in the morning, however, one year in I started experiencing severe nausea​ to the point of throwing up in a Chick-fil-A.I talked to my doctor and decided to take it before bed. This has helped and I haven't been sick yet.

  • Talk to your doctor if you suffer from migraines before you start taking Cymbalta. Cymbalta triggered three weeks straight of migraines for me and put me in the hospital multiple times. I also gained over 10lbs in the first two weeks of taking Cymbalta. This drug is an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE !!! The withdrawal symptoms continued for months and months, and even while I was on it, it didn't help my depression or pain at all. Nausea, fatigue, sleep problems, etc!!
