I have been taking Cymbalta for 2 yrs. ;specifically,30 mg for 30 days..then 60 mg for one yr; and now 120 mg for the 2nd yr. I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety disorder 07/2005. I also have pain from cysts on ovaries/hormonal issues. Cymbalta has changed my life for the better. I look forward to each day..not to say that there aren't some days I just want to stay in bed..but less of those days then more. Cymbalta helps depression and pain effects/affects. I have gained 30 pounds in 2 yrs..but, I would rather have the added weight then uncontrollable sadness and pain on a daily basis.I hope this has helped you.
I will start diet/exercise program soon.
