Welcome to Healing Well.
I am Kitt and finally, someone on Cymbalta. It was prescribed for the depression and anxiety. It took a long time to kick in for me but I usually need a lot of whatever it is. I take 60mg twice a day. I was also taking 4 mg of Ativan at the same time.................
I have since been weaning off the benzo and so far am doing well.
I also see a therapist and we work on trying to recall what sets off the panic atacks.
Someone already mentioned that anxiety in small doese is a normal part of your life.
I would strongly suggest a therapist to work with you. Everyone responds to different methods of slaying the dragon within.
Be kind and gentle to your self, set small goals and keep posting.
We are here for you.
