I was put on Cymbalta about two weeks ago. After about three days I started getting very depressed even tho I've never had a big problem with depression before. It quickly went to suicidal thoughts and self harm within two weeks, though along with that I was getting rapid heart beat, more anxiety, and constant dry heaving/throwing up that was getting worse instead of better, not to mention I lost 4 pounds in that time. (which is a big deal since im barely 100 pounds now) I was just taken off of it, but i was wondering if anyone else had these troubles?
Hi... yes I had major depression from cymbalta. I took it for 6 months and got severely depressed. Lost my sex drive and felt like a zombie. I am weaning off it now. As I wean off its giving me severe anxiety. I was subscribed this for pain and anxiety. Didn't help either one. Just made me depressed. I was never this depressed in my life!!
