Re: Cymbalta (duloxetine) - day 7

here's my first report...

taking 30mg once daily in the morning. only side effects are some mild somnolence about 3-6 hours after dosing. Some nights, I have experienced a little sleep disruption and initial insomnia on some nights. But I've been able to still make it to the gym, so I can't say that there's been any decrease in my overall enegry level. To my relief, I have not experienced any increase in anxiety or agitation. As Scott mentioned, the drug is rather "clean."

So far, I must admit that this is a welcomed improvement over my prior regimen of Effexor 37.5mg.

I plan to stick with 30mg for a couple more weeks.

I haven't ruled out upping to 40mg (20mg BID) or even decreasing to 20mg. As you might guess, I'm fairly med sensitive.
