Ledgekay, Hi I am so sorry for your experiences. I was put on cymbalta after having panic attacks but I was not diagnosis correctly because the wrong questions were asked. And I went into the worst phase. I was already numb but was cracking around the edges and cymbalta made me a zombie. I wound up in the hospital with gi problems and my digestive system still isn't right. Getting off cymbalta was a nightmare. I just tapered off lexapro but never went up to the dosage doc told me to use. I slept way too much so if I wasn't depressed anymore I would have known it I would have been sleeping. I am not the same. And I finallly found a therapist that did diagnosis me correctly. Meds are still a problem but they are always right and have always been my whole life.

I agree for every side effect you go in and tell them and get that vacant stare and that mmmmmmmm, I hate. No one wants to hear about them cause they don't want to be responsible for any part of a side effect. To have been the doc prescribing the drug, the one to deal with the side effect or to help you understand so lets play it is not there. It does not take a degree in anything but common sense to know that a drug of these types or strengths or ones that mess with brain chemistry with have side effects. That is a no-brainer if you ask me. Not will these drugs have side effects, the questions should be what are the side effects and go from there. And it is sad that you were having good success and then they stopped listening to you and the docs themselves caused their own meds to stop working. How sad for you and for them. What ever happened to hippocractic oath, do no harm?
