[QUOTE=americandancer]I have given cymbalta a try for the last 4 weeks. It took care of my anxiety the first 3 weeks, but have noticed the anxiety is worse now. Also, I have a bottle of wellbutrin xl in my cabinet, but I have heard this makes anxiety worse. I also have lexapro, but I am scared that will just keep me sleepy and make me gain weight. Any suggestions out there? I have xanax, but I take only at night to help me sleep.[/QUOTE]
I'm not familar with Cymbalta, but I have been taking Lexapro for about 7 weeks now. It did make me extremely tired for the first few weeks, but now I feel pretty normal. I haven't gained any weight on it, and I DID gain weight when taking other medications, mainly Paxil. My experience with Lexapro was that it made my anxiety better for 2 weeks, then a LOT worse for about 3 weeks. Now its seems like it's actually working. It just takes a while for your body to get used to it. If you really don't like Cymbalta, I'd try something else, but be aware that it could take your body a while to get used to it. That really frustrated me at first, but I'm glad I gave it a chance, because I am finally feeling like I'm getting a little better after months of terrible anxiety. Good luck my friend.
