I was put on Cymbalta about a month ago. Took it for three week with absolutely no beneficial effects whatsoever. Only thing I notices is a horribly dry mouth. I have read all kinds of reports of it being physically addictive and a long drawn out process getting back off the stuff. If I perceived it was doing even the slightest thing beneficial I would have stayed on longer, but why stay longer and increase the risk of physical addiction for nothing in return? Did I give up too quickly?
