Since I drank as much (at first) on Cymbalta as I did on Effexor, I guess it didn't make things worse. What really helped my cravings has been Campral. My anxiety is reduced to what I think is "normal", and it has only been since I started that medication and have been able to stay sober. Having support at home makes an enormous difference, too.

What has also helped me has been to slow down - I am trying not to initiate any major changes in my life. For example, I don't like my T (**see - thread doesn't need to be redirected!!**) but instead of bailing out like I impulsively want to do, I am looking for a new therapist first. It sounds like common sense, but when I'm not feeling right, I rush to change as many things as I can until I feel better.
