No it isn't like some giant fireworks, but you can expect suttle changes. It will be like many pounds lifted off your shoulders when you don't have the dark thoughts anymore. You will be happy and less troubled. Hopefully you wont dwell on past or future, these things you can work on with self therapy to help you along. You don't get high or anything, but you will experience more joy. Cymbalta also helps with any physical pain you might be having with depression. It usually takes four to six weeks to get the full effects and it wont be all at once, it will be gradual. I am glad that you are giving it a try. Any side effects should go away in two to four weeks.
Good luck with the cymbalta
