Cymbalta makes me so exhausted. Would Effexor do the same? Has anyone switched from Cymbalta to Effexor with any success?

Pristiq also made me feel tranquilized/ very tired. Cymbalta helps me a lot, but the fatigue side effect is a huge problem for me.
Sphynxxx; I have heard this alot with cymbalta and the two of these medications are in the same group but most don't have as much problems with Effexor xr from what I have read. You might just check with your doctor it would or should not be as hard to change from one to the other being there in the same group of medication and hopefully you would not have to wait as long for the Effexor to start working for you. We all react to these medications different.But I know this has been one of the main complaints with Cymbalta. Good luck.to you. Give your Doctor a call.
