I have been on Effexor for the past year and it helped substantially - but at a pretty high dose (450 mg). I suffered from extreme sweating/shivering so tried to get off it only to find my depression returning with a vengence. So now I'm taking 225mg Effexor and 30 mg Cymbalta until next week - I'll drop to 150 Effexor and increase the Cymbalta to 60. After that I see pdoc again and and presumably he'll up the Cymbalta as I continue to taper the Effexor to zero. I just hope the Cymbalta is as effective as the Effexor was for the depression. So far, I haven't seen any change - but the dose of Cymbalta is probably too low.

If it weren't for the sweating/shivering, I'd probably have stayed with the Effexor - so I give it two thumbs up - especially if it works for you at a lower dose.

Good luck
