Hello blondie. I, not certain if you're taking it off label, such as for pain (Fibromyalgia) or as an antidepressant. You should begin to feel some change, but it might take another two weeks. Give or take a few days either way. Cymbalta as a rule of sorts, as most antidepressants, can take up 4 weeks before the drug is working at its full theraputic potential. Best of wishes,pledge
I am on Cymbalta for depression and it took about 3 weeks for me. But I am on a much higher dose 120mg. I am having some other physical problems that are causing me pain and also make it hard to get out of bed. (see my profile). The moment I felt the Cymbalta working was one morning when I woke up and I wanted to cry but I couldn't. I don't know if this is good or bad but I think I've been in a little better frame of mind since then. Sorry to tell you it takes so much time but continue to communicate your symptoms to the doctor. And remember, if they get really bad there is no shame in calling a crisis line! All my best to you and I hope you feel better soon! Lisa Z.
