If you go back through the archives, to about August/September/October of 2004, you should find a fair number of threads about Cymbalta. When it first came out, a lot of us posted our experiences on it here.

I've been on it since late August of 2004, and can only give it a mixed review. It has helped my depression a bit, although it took adding Wellbutrin before it was anything like effective. It was helpful for pain from arthritis, but that seems to have tapered down a lot. (Meaning the pain is back again.) I tried everything from 30mg to 90mg, but raising it didn't help -- it made the sedation/amotivation worse, so we lowered it again and added WB.

As of yesterday, I've lowered it again, to 20mg, to augment the WB and (I profoundly hope) to ease the constipation my regimen is causing. I think it should be OK, since I'm not sure the Cymbalta is actually doing much for me.

Good luck, whatever you decide.
