Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I hope you will discuss with your Dr. the many different medications available. My pdoc always gives me the pros and cons of the medications. I thought the last time I went back on meds that I had tried them all but she reassured me that there were new meds and combinations that we could try. I have added Lamictal to my cocktail as I have the most problems with being depressed and feeling sad. I am still working my way up to the full dosage but I do feel like my moods have evened out better.
I even asked if I could be bipolar and the answer after disscussion was no - my sx are pure Major Depressive Disorder.
I hope the Cymbalta is not causing you to many side effects as you get onto this medication. I actually started this medication and worked daily without problems. Keep us posted on how you are doing.
