In reply to Cymbalta it is..., posted by francesrose on August 8, 2008, at 15:13:25
Yesterday was my first day on the Cymbalta and I just had the usual side effects from starting a medication - dry mouth, stomachache, insomnia. Maybe a minuscule reduction in anxiety? For about five minutes yesterday my brain seemed to stop long enough for me to take a look around and realize that things have gotten really bad, really out-of-control, despite my best efforts to keep it together.
The one thing I'm asking myself a lot lately is why do I keep going off medication? I tell myself that I won't EVER go off of them again, then things get better and I go off of them. And things get worse. Then I go on them, etc. etc. etc. Sigh.
Anyway, I have to address my anxiety issues and I hope this medication will help!
