Thanks for the good wishes. I don't know why, but I was a little surprised she suggested Cymbalta when I talked about antidepressants. Maybe it's that "It's new so I'm gonna start prescribing it a lot" thing. Or maybe she's just happy with what it's doing for some of her patients. Even though I was envisioning trying an older drug, I have no reason to not be open-minded about it. I used to feel hopeful when trying new medication. Now I just dread it. Will report back in a week or so.
I am sorry you're backsliding. I really hope it's temporary. If this persists another day or two, then yeah, maybe you're ready to try an increase and see if you can avoid going too far down.
