Dear bulldog,

This has happened to me when they upped my Cymbalta to 120mg.  I just did not feel like me, I felt like I was in a fog.  Many people react similar to this same way from their meds.

Talk to your Dr as maybe your dose is to high or possibly a differnt schedule for when to take the meds may help.  Please don't sit home feeling bad, go get that help.  We are here for you all the way.

Hugs to ya

Hi Bulldog, I don't have any experience with those meds, but I know that when I have changed doses or meds I sometimes feel like I'm living in a dream for a while.  It usually goes away, but If you are feeling concerned, tell your doc right away.  I wish you all the best, as Kitt said, we are here for you.

Count me in too. When I've had dosage changes - or way back when while my doctor and I were still figuring out the best med for me - I've gotten foggy and in that flat-mood-not-me place.

I hope you and your doctor can find the best choices real soon!
