Cymbalta saved my life!!! I am so blessed to have finally found a medication that really works and does NOT make me like a zombie. I have been on Cymbalta now for 1 year. I take 90mg a day. I dont suffer from anxiety or depression anymore. Its such a fantastic feeling. For the first time in a long time, I am finally living a quality life. Someone on the site mentioned that they sweated alot at night when sleeping while taking Cymbalta. I too do this, but if this is the only side effect.... its allllllllllllll good in my book. I used to be on xannax, paxil and lexapro and none of them worked. I was on xannax for over 17 years and it was a real nightmare (to say the least) getting off of it. I had withdrawals from hell that lasted about 1 1/2 months. I was so pleased to read on this website that others are having good expeirences with Cymbalta. I was on another Cymbalta site and most of the people there were slamming Cymbalta, saying that it only worked for a month or so and then they were right back where they started. Anyway, just like with any medication like these, you should always have a phyciatrist supervising for at least a year. Also, make sure to get a good therapist that can teach you coping skills so you can eventually handle matters without as much medication or none. Hope this helps some.
