It sounds like you're at your wit's end. In my opinion, take the medication. A lot of us debated whether or not to take our medications. We worried about
side effects, having to take them forever, the stigma of being on an antidepressant.
I suggest you start the med and also learn the techniques necessary to float through an anxiety attack. Take some classes or join an anxiety group. In the meantime, the medication will be helping you live your life again.
Also, ask your doc if there's something you can take to help with any potential side effects of the Cymbalta. Maybe you could temporarily take Xanax, Ativan, Valium or Klonopin. Good luck!
