I've been on Cymbalta for almost 3 weeks now and I've allready started to begun to notice a change in my mode and thinking. I don't seem to be worrying as much which was my main problem and have started to feel like there actually is hope out there. Yes, I seem to be putting on a little weight but I'd rather my mind being right than being concerned about a few pounds. I do get a little sleepy with it, my doctor recommended I take it at night.
I am on the Cymbalta too and I think it is a good med but I really hate the weight gain. My pdoc says it is not known for causing weight gain so I put her on it too. LOL
Glad your doing better.
I also have Crohns and have been on Cymbalta for a little over 5 weeks. I believe the meds have helped me. I'm not 100% but I'm doing alot better than I was without it. I have not experienced the weight gain as of yet, however, I have experienced the lack of sex drive. All in all, I cannot complain, as it seems to be working. The doctors told me that it takes 4 to 6 weeks for it to fully take affect, so hopefully it work even better for me in the next few weeks. I'm currently on 90 miligrams, don't be alarmed, I'm also 6'6" and weigh 275 pounds, my doctor said that I need that much of a dose for a guy my size.
Gee, with that said maybe going up to 120 will help me. I'm not having trouble sleeping, my problem is that I'm a constant worrier of things that have not occured and of past regrets in my current relationship that I have made a mountain out of a molehill.
