I just started Cymbalta today. I am hyper by design. I have autism, antisocial personality disorder and brain damage. I have cerebral palsy lots of disabilities. I know it is early yet but after the first pill 60 MG, I have noticed a few things I really do not like.
I have NO sex drive which I really do not miss being autistic. Having antisocial personality disorder makes it a real constant struggle to keep my behavior within the expected parameters of societies rules under normal conditiions. Cymbalta is making it much harder to keep the most negative antisocial desires that are ever present under strict management. Thus far I have been able to keep my most base desires well managed but it is a real struggle I can not endure forever.
Cymbalta makes me so hyper I can not sleep at all. I am up all night. I am not depressed or at least I feel good, but I am but I feel like I drank a river of coffee with tons of caffene. I am kind of afraid because, I am feeling really inwardly aggressive even at home alone like I want to fight something or someone but there is no one here for me to get mad at, which is not a good or safe place for me.
I am thinking about speaking to my doctor tomorrow, because this scares me. Not being able to sleep at all is another Cymbalta negative. I am happy that I am more alert now than I have been in a long time but, I would like it to wear off long enough for me to get at least a little sleep. Let me know if any of you have any comments or suggestions. I will let you know how my chat with my doctor works out later today.
