I take 30 mg x2 daily.  I feel it works great for me.  I used to be on Prozac & continued to have depression symptoms.  I have to say, since I've been on cymbalta, I no longer cry & I am able to cope better.  I started at 20mg x2 daily, but, I need more.  Good Luck & God Bless.

Dx with CD 1987, 3 resections, 3 abcess sx, OA back & hips, bulging disk, Major depression/anxiety, kidney stones & sx to remove, now 44 yrs old.  Still trying to figure this disease out & of course all the little extra complications that come with this rollarcoaster of a life with CD. 
 
Meds:  Hurmira every other week 40 mg, Imuran .75 daily, cymbalta 60 mg daily, Lortab 7.5/500 x 4x, fish oil, fovia,vit e,folic acid,Vit B12,inject monthly,

Rick, I actually started on 20 mg 2x daily, but, my symptoms didn't go away.  But, once I increased, I can tell I feel much better.  Not crying or having pity parties.  I don't know if starting at 60 is too much????  And I can't remember how quick it worked.

I take cymbalta and do think it helps alot. But valium and xanax won't help with depresision they will just help take the edge off stress or anixety. Ya know. They work well together for me. But we are different.
