I thought cymbalta was approved off-label for panic disorder? I know it is still under trial for gad, I believe. Others have said it got full approval for gad/sad already, but I haven't found that anywhere on the net. The funny thing is, Effexor XR did not work for me, as the cymbalta did. I don't know what is different about
the two, except cymbalta is not supposed to be as harsh. When it is really kicking in, I do get nervous energy, but nothing like agitation/anxiety. I don't know if that makes sense or not. It's like I can feel the nervous energy, but no one can notice it.
I have been reading awful things about weight gain after a year or so on it. Some people say they lose, and some say the gain. What does everyone else think?
