My first medication

Posted by llrrrpp on May 6, 2006, at 23:46:22

It took a few months, but I couldn't deny my debilitating depression. My first step was to get a therapist at the Uni health services. I was still going downhill very fast, and I was really scared. And I was referred to a pdoc (this jargon still sounds really weird, like a foreign language), who started me with 30 mg cymbalta 4 days ago - next week I go to 60 mg. I've never taken anything before, and I feel very wierd: insomniac, and off balance, kind of blurry vision, a little high, and kind of intoxicated. maybe a slight headache, but that could be related to reading psycho-babble for the last hour. I'm so happy that I found this site, because I have so many questions. Aide from some college psych. classes, I have no personal experience with any of this. I was only diagnosed with major depression last week. In the last few weeks, I feel like I've gone from having an illusion of self-control to utter vulnerability at the hands of T, pdoc and life in general. I guess I will start with a simple question: I have not looked forward to anything in weeks. I don't even look forward to eating -- not even chocolate :( and despite the fact that the food tastes good, it just doesn't have any emotional valence. I am losing weight, and I don't like it. Do any of you have experience with this, and will my medication help it?
