I have never taken cymbalta myself but i know others here do so I'm sure they'll be along to reply to your post.
I just wanted to say how sorry I am about your aunt. It must be such a difficult time for you all. At least she is getting the right help now and changing her meds will help also.
When someone has suffered a nervous breakdown, it really is the lowest point you can ever feel I think.
I suffered a breakdown when all my past came back to haunt me. I was also abused as a child by my mums boyfriend and this was harder to cope with as an adult. I take lexapro which is helping my depressiona dn anxiety and my therapy is slowly helping although it all just takes time.
From feeling so low, the only way is up. I feel like ive risen from a big black hole and I know I am getting better now.
I wish your aunt all the best and I think its wonderful how supportive you are of her. She will appreciate that so much as she starts to get better.
Take care and keep in touch with us. Let us know how she gets on.
cherish all your happy moments....they make a fine cushion for old age
