Hi!! I was just wondering who else here has made the switch from Celexa to Cymbalta? I was taking 30mg of Celexa every morning plus Klonopin as needed. I was upped to 40mg but that made me incredibly sleepy and I was still having some breakthrough anxiety. Since I no longer have mental health benefits available to me for the year, my new PCP met with me and we decided to make a switch to Cymbalta. I was diagnosed with fibro 2 weeks ago so this will also help with that. How was your switch and how do you enjoy the Cymbalta?

Depending on your dosing schedule for Cymbalta, this is a very spendy drug.  I do not know the cost of Celex but I pay a co pay of $80.00 per month and I have insurance.

Good luck
