Hi Theo.

> Do you feel at all that Cymbata will be good for anxiety?

So far, two people have reported a reduction in their anxiety after only one day. This is nice to hear, but only time will tell. Be aware that several SSRIs can produce anxiety as a startup side effect that eventually disappears and yields to a reduction in anxiety and depression.

> Can you roughly compare how you are currently feeling on Cymbalta to any other SSRI's you have taken in the past?

So far, I find it to be cleaner than the SSRIs or Effexor. I can detect no effects on cognition. No fogginess or spaciness. No anxiety. No sexual side effects. These are things that have occurred with me with these drugs in the past.

I hope this helps. I know you want all of the answers right away. I'm afraid there are no guarantees that Cymbalta will act similarly or differently from other drugs based upon the drug category it is loosely placed in or the side effects that appear early in treatment. I think we are all in this discovery stage together.
