[FONT="Arial"][SIZE="3"]Hi Everyone,

I went to my doctor yesterday and he decided to take me off of Effexor XR 225mg and move me directly onto Cymbalta 60mg. These were given to me for my depression.

What I would like to find out is if anyone is taking Cymbalta and how long they have been on it? What type of side effects have they experienced and has it helped them?

If you have any information to share, please let me know.
Thanks,
Maria :angel:

My husband has been on Cymbalta for a few years, and it seems to help (he was on Lexapro before). It also is supposed to help with pain, but he didn't see that effect until he was on a higher dose (90 mg/day). I don't think he has any specific side effects from it but he takes so many different medications it is hard to isolate.

Hi, I've been on Cymbalta for a few years now, and I am also on 60mg. I don't see any side effects, nor do I see any help with pain from it, I am also on alot of other narcotics though. It seems to help with the depression, I was on paxil, effexor before.
