Thanks for your response Marty. Years ago I did try Effexor, but couldn't tolerate it. I felt unpleasantly overstimulated on it. Cymbalta so far has had few side effects, except for pain in my chest and heart palpitations. I think it's the most effective AD I've ever used, but I am concerned about what it may be doing to my body, especially my heart. I have no anxiety from it and my sleep is perfect. Also, I am concerned about the effect it has on blood sugar levels.

This is the first time I'm having therapy. In the past I only used ADs without getting any therapy. Maybe the AD response is not from the Cymbalta, but from the therapy. My therapist uses regressive hypnoanalysis. So maybe I don't need the Cymbalta.

One thing that concerns me is the brain damage from untreated depression. Maybe I'll quit the Cymbalta and go on to Zoloft or Celexa to avoid getting brain damage.

Thanks again Linkadge, Phillipa and Marty.
