I've not taken cymbalta, so I don't have any experience with it. We have many members here who are taking it or have taken it and I'm sure they can help you out. Stay in contact with your doctor and read through the possible side effects, if you have any worries tell your doctor. If you start out with a small dose and work up to a higher one then you should be okay under supervision. This said I am not a professional. Let us know how you go okay? I get scared taking new meds and it's normal to feel anxious about it. We are here to listen and support. Again, welcome.
