I know you didn't ask anyone but Linkadge but here's my 2 cents anyway...

If you:
- suffering some neuropathic kind of pain
- are NOT doing much anxiety
- are WELL grounded into reality (no depersonalization, no derealization)

.. then Duloxetine (Cymbalta) may be worth trying.

BUT if you're not suffering some neuropathy/fibromyalgia and didn't try Valenfaxine (Effexor XR) yet THEN this is hard to see any rationale go to with Cymbalta right away.

- Cymbalta side-effects are stonger than most SSRIs/SNRIs.
- Cymbalta is less effective (+ stronger side effects) than the SSRIs.

While I mostly agree with Linkadge about the relative safety of SSRIs/SNRIs AD, I feel Cymbalta may be one of the least safe modern AD. Which doesn't mean it is not safe... I wouldn't be scared to try it at all as a fact. BUT.. if it's true that some AD could induce permenant 'changes' (I do believe) in some (exemple: post-SSRI sexual dysfunction) then Duloxetine is one I would AVOID IF POSSIBLE. That's how I feel.
