Welcome to the depression forum. I have not taken cymbalta, but I believe there are a few on this forum who do. I take effexor, abilify and xanax. These I have found for me have the least amounts of side effects. But they work different for different people.
I am sure that somebody who takes cymbalta will post and give you some better information.
Also I believe there are some past posts that I can bmp up for you to read.
Hi there and Welcome from Lyme!
There are LOADS of horror stories about different AD's. Here in the UK, Prozac / Fluoxetine probably has the worst press; but for the most part, AD's dont deserve it. It is a case of finding a med that suits you. As Karen has said, Effexor works for her. For me, its Zoloft / Sertraline. Other people get on well with Cymbalta, Wellbutrin etc... We have a lot of members who take Cymbalta so I doubt it will be long before someone shares their experience.
I dont think Cymbalta is that addictive although there is an addictive element that goes with all AD's. Congrats on going back to work, keep at it... the anxiety will fade as you get used to it again!
Hey there, I take Cymbalta and it does ok for me, no side effects. I have been on it about 8 months now.
Kudos for you on returning to work. Be good to yourself and ease into your new routine gradually. Kitt
