> I have stopped taking Cymbalta after having been on it since late Sept., due to a wicked face rash and also not really being thrilled with the results. It took me a long time to put the face rash and Cymbalta together, but since I quit, my face has cleared up. I haven't read of anyone else on this forum having this problem, but it was pretty bad. I also felt a constant anxiety and an inability to concentrate.

I am also taking Abilify, .5 mgs, but I don't really know if this has helped.

Sorry to hear that the Cymbalta didn't work out. I'm in the same boat in some ways. Will probably start back on Effexor until I can figure out what else to do. At least my anxiety was under control and I was functioning better when I was on it. I just wish there were some easy solution to the lethargy and amotivation I had on it. I was wondering if augmenting with Abilify might be a solution. Are you going to give up on the Abilify or possibly increase your dosage? It's supposed to be activating so I was hoping it might give more energy and drive.
