Im glad I found this forum, I was just put on cymbalta last nite was my first dose 30mg my doc said take it for 7 days then is upping me to 60mg. Today I feel really weird im not really nauseas just feel like every now and then I could just throw up, and my heart is pounding like I was racing and im feeling really jittery like I took one of those OTC metabolism boosters, I cant stop yawning but not really sleepy. I was having problems with sleep, and just constant fatigue and malaise, not wanting to do anything, we did full check up and even sleep study everything was fine, but she felt I had a mild case of depression, Well I have to admit that at the begining of this year I had a really rough time my son got into some big trouble with the law, so we were in and out of court, at the same time I just started a new job and was trying not to loose it, then in feb my grandbaby was born but she had a tumor and was in hosp for 3 weeks, then she was having some issues after for another 2 weeks, so I told her yea I was probably depressed. So I really hope this works but I do not like feeling like this at and I hope the higher dose dosent make it worse. Thank all of you for all your input Im glad I know I can turn here to seek some anwers I might need.
