[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.
