Hi this is Kitt. I take cymbalta and my pdoc cranked me up to 120mgs per day. I craved carbos and was going through boxes of cheerios like you would not believe. I gain 10 lbs and I was eating already before the med was started. I talked to Pdoc and insisted on going down to 60 mgs of the Cymbalta which has made a huge difference in the cravings.
Exercise is good but I agree, talk with your pdoc as a huge weight gain is not healthy and IMHO it is depressing too.
Hope you get this sorted out. Welcome to HealingWell. Please stick with us.
