I don't know about the NE factor but I believe it might cause anxiety/irritation in certain individuals. At least that has been my experience. Hopefully, the cymbalta will even itself out after a while. Don't quit just yet! Keep me up to date because it sounds like we have similar reactions to meds.

This is so weird. SSRI's cause me anxiety - especially Paxil. After a week or two on Paxil I was a total basket case and ended up in a doctor's office being given a Xanax to chew up.

On Effexor, though, my anxiety decreased. (Although it's not gone).

I guess it's really so true about different people's reactions. Since we have opposite reactions and Paxil made me anxious - maybe Paxil would make you calm?

Good luck.
