Hey Denim girl,
I studied all the drugs in depth for depression and tried many but ended up on Cymbalta. My daily dose is 120 mg devided in 2 doses.
I quit looking at all the side effects and it seems to be working or something is.
Other then some weight gain I do not notice any major problems with it.
I know it is hard to accept that you need the meds but you may be able to come off them. Please be comfortable with whatever med you choose.
I am the same way, I just can't help researching but for every positive I usually find a negative............so then it is back in my lap again.
I believe Cymbalta as other antidepressants put weight loss or weight gain as a side effect to cover themselves.
Bless you sweetie,
