I have an addicting personality and am affarid to take them
22 Jan 2011
I took this medication for symptoms of diabetic neuropathy and although it did not work for me, it really did enhance my mood. I am not a person prone to depression so I am not sure if that is why the medication didn't work or what. I stepped down from the drug with no noticeable side effects. I am sure it is different for everyone. I wouldn't worry about its addiction, it really doesn't cause anything like that. If you are going to try it for your neuropathy I highly suggest it. I will warn you it is expensive, it was expensive even with my insurance coverage. Good luck to you.

Cymbalta is an antidepressant which is not addictive and it will not make you "high". If your doctor has prescribed this, it is very important that you follow your doctors directions and take the medication as prescribed. Are you taking this for depression or pain control? Also, do not share your medicine with anyone else. It may take sometime before you feel the positive effects of this medicine so give it time and trust your doctor.

My doctor is switiching me from Cymbalta to Celexa due to high cost of Cymbalta. Even the generic Cymbalta costs me $377.00 a month.
