well yesterday my original dr was gone so i seen this other one and i am grateful i did! i was taking 30mg of cymbalta for awhile and things weren't getting any better so my dr decided to up the dose to 30mg in the morning and 30mg inthe evening that was monday. well by yesterday i felt like total poo. heart racing, chest achyness, just felt i could jump out of my skin. so went to see this other dr and guess what he told me? he said he had no idea of why a dr would put some one on cymbalta for anxiety because it is not an anxiety med. it will increase anxiety because it has epinepherine something or other in it and he is like you are already producing enough of that, this is why you feel the way you do. so he is weaning me off thecymbalta and starting me on lexapro. i take 30mg of cymbalta in the AM and 5mg of lexapro in the PM for one week then no more cymbalta only 10mg of lexapro. he said that should help the anxiety alot. anyone here take lexapro and have you had good results? how long before you noticed it working? and were there any side effects? doc said there shouldn't be any major side effects.
