Hello I been struggling with anxiety and panic attacks for 4 years now but there were times where i was ok. And honestly I never tooken anything for my anxiety until now I been taking calazopam 0.5 mg. But my main question is and new symptom is hyperventilation I just been experiencing this now for 2 months now. So my doctor put me on cymbalta 30 mg for 3 days and then 60 mg after. Is there anyone that can help with this I really want to know if I start taking the cymbalta will it stop my hyperventilation please someone that experienced the same or knowns please help iam very nervous on taking the new medication. Just feel like it might be worse.
Sorry it took so long for someone to answer you..But yes the cymbalta if you have not started it should help with the hyperventolation along with panic attacks.Remember it takes about 6 weeks to reach its best level so it may not right away but stick with it And what I do is breathing deep and slow when i feel them coming on you what to inhale slowly and deep where you can see your stomach come out then exhale slowly also. The main cause of hyperventilation is shallow breathing and breathing fast..Hope this helps you some any questions feel free to post again.This fell between the gaps there are so many great people here that well give you good answers.So if you don't get one please feel free to post again.Hope you have a great weekend.

Ness forgot remember also many of the side effect of this drug go away with continued use. But if for any reason you have problems please ask. And let your doctor know so you get an answer as fast as possible Just remember nothing is wrong with you and you are no way alone with these problems..I found that to help when we feel all alone and what is going on with us.have a good one and stay positive it helps.
