I have been fighting depression for a couple of years. I have a history that contibutes to the depression cycle. I was wondering if anyone else was having similar problems. I have been on several anti-depression meds and they seem to make me worse. I was prescribed the new Cymbalta last week and had to come home from work today due to vomiting and diarrhea. This is something I have been fighting since I started the medicine. I'm going to stop taking it and talk to my doctor. What I wanted to know is if anyone has been combating grief? I'm thinking that my problem is more grief related and if I need to see a therapist. I have lost someone I've loved and adored for years last November. He didn't pass...he just passed on me. He now has a new relationship and I have to face him on occasion. It's a long and complicated story. He did what was right, but I can't seem to get over it. I feel like I'm sad. My stomach will drop and blood pressure rise if I have to be around him. I've also stopped enjoying the things in my life that I've worked so hard to achieve. Is there a medicine out there specifically for my symptoms? I have tried several including lexapro (gave me anxiety) zoloft (made me a vegtable)and now trying Cymbalta. I can handle it on my own most of the time. It seems that I will get worse during my menstral cycle. Does anyone have any answers...or perhaps something similiar to share?
Thank you...I'm at wits end.
