> I have an extreme anxiety disorder. For the past year I've barely left my house. Even leaving my bedroom can be difficult.
> I've been prescribed Cymbalta at 30mgs with Valium to take as needed. I can't get myself to start the drug.
> I have a long history with meds...none of it very good. I've been in the ER twice with reactions. Once it was a rash and the other time I was way too sedated.
> Needless to say the experiences were not fun although they weren't life-threatening.
> So now I'm scared to death to take the Cymbalta. I just can't do it. Despite how bad I am at least I know it isn't going to get worse. If I swallow that pill it could get worse - but I know it could also get better and maybe I could have a life again. Still, I can't do it.
> Does anyone have a similar experience, a word of comfort or any advice on how to swallow that first pill and not have a huge anxiety attack doing it?

I have just the opposite problem..i'll take anything. "I know, let's give it to Monte, he'll take anything, Hey Monte, he likes it!" (Sorry, my pathetic attempt at humor. :)

I sincerely wish you well.
