Im 25 and have always had a problem with depresion sinse i cant remember, I only really came to terms with it recently and decided not to deprive myself of help any longer,iv never wanted to take antydepresonts,but i thaught is i want to have drive and energy in life i have no choice.
Im on 30mg of cymbalta a month now,besides the extreme yawning all day that makes my jaw sore and tense,im starting to feel better im not having breakdowns and snapping at people like i usually am im alot more chilled and posative and am sleeping better, but i am seeing so much negative feedback about them and am afraid that after a while they'll have bad affects, and i really dont want to put weight on, shakehead specially because of my self asteem issues i cudnt handle that cus not so long ago i succeeded in losing over a stone. Has anybody had good experience on these to share? and if i was gonna get bad side affects would they have appeard already

Hi there,

Make sure to eat properly and get plenty of exercise. Cymbalta can cause weight gain, but if you are careful, you shouldn't have any trouble as you are so young. I think it effects us as we get older. Around 30 or so. But at that time, we start to gain weight anyway. So some of it is side effects and some is natural. Just keep moving and try to walk a lot.

Let us know how it goes. Keep posting.

Hugs, Karen
