> > The 10 mg. blew me away. I was so incredibly groggy with intense agitation combined. I just couldn't imagine how I would have felt if I had started on 30 mg. It would have been a nightmare.

REALLY????? Unimaginable! I hope those who are meds sensitive know enough to open the capsules!

> >>Part of the problem could have been that I tried it when I started experiencing Effexor withdrawal symptoms but still this medication scared me so much.
> **I wondered if the fact that my meds were all over the place from having just been in the hospital (depression was that bad) was causing my bizarre reactions. But hearing from others on this board, most of us seem to be very sensitive to it, especially bipolars.

Could be. Who knows. Interesting that you think bipolars tend to be extremely sensitive to Cymbalta. I may be soft bipolar because of agitated depression. My last one was so severe and fit some of your description of mixed states in another post. I should have been hospitalized but I don't have health insurance. BTW, why do they call it "mixed states"? Does it refer to the combination of depression with anxiety?

> >>Now that I'm reading about your success, I'm thinking that I should give it another try going really slowly. I have the samples here. I don't really have much to lose.
> **Hopefully just your depression :-) You might want to start with just 1 pellet. Believe me, I felt it at 3, felt them kick in about 2 hours after injesting. I thought 'this can't be' but my pupils became dilated just as they did on 30mg. Now, 6 weeks later, I only notice a slight effect when I increase, but enough to realize these things are potent.

I was going to start with 3 pellets but now that you say that, I'll try starting with 1.

Do you have motivation on Cymbalta? I had none on Effexor or the SSRIs and I have none now. I would kill for motivation and the ability to leap out of bed in the morning to greet the day.

> Please keep in touch if you decide to try it. As more people experience this response I get even more amazed, and the word needs to get out. I truly hope others can benefit as I seem to be. - Barbara

Definitely. I live here :-) or should I say :-(.
