I took cymbalta for a month... the first 2 weeks i had no appetite. the 2nd 2 weeks i spent in the bed throwing up. I lost 12 lbs on cymbalta, and it didnt help anything at all. (except my weight!)
Then my pdoc switched me to prozac. I am on it now. I have been on it for a while now, several months.... I think it is helping... I am not really sure because I am on 3 different meds now. I take the prozac, and trazadone, and focalin. I have been having ups and downs so Im not sure how its helping me.. I just wish that it were because this is the..1....2...3rd thing I have tried and Im just not sure anything is working. I always seem to be the complicated person anyways... so its so hard for me to find anything to help me..
Its different for everyone so... as far as I know I didnt have any side-effects when I started it so... thats good I suppose. Hopefully you will not have any bad side-effects either. Good luck and I hope it helps you! take care
