I don't have a high speed connection to watch youtube, but I took cymbalta for a couple of months and it was the only drug - at 60mg/day, not the 30mg - that helped me feel my feet again. It also helped improve my mood. The ONLY reason I'm not on it is because I have a seizure disorder and anti-depressants can sometimes affect that. Unfortunately, cymbalta did. Otherwise I had no side effects. Drugs and responses are VERY VERY individual. I tihink we all need to remember that.

I very much agree with PAlady, drug responsiveness as with many other things can differ greatly from individual to individual. I definitely feel that Cymbalta has helped me. But with all the negative posts I hope I don't experience some of the bad things down the road. What are the bad effects of taking Cymbalta? I mainly read the effects of getting off the drug. I am so glad that I found this site and all the wonderful people who are here to offer their experiences and advice.
Have a Blessed Weekend.

I agree also! I've never tried cymbalta, but I've been on a myriad of SSRIs and SNRIs.  I absolutely hated Effexor, but other people might love it.   A person's response to a drug is very individualized.
