been taking it for about eight years for depression seems like its becoming less helpful. Can it stop being effective no matter how high the dose? I take 60 mg. per day now.
It is normal for the body to build tolerance to any substance. Over time the body gets used to the medication and it becomes necesary to increase the dosage in order to obtain the same effect. Talk to your doctor about what would be a safe dose for you or maybe even adding a different medication in a small dose.
I was on cymbalta for a year and loved it! My doctor was giving me free samples. When the free samples werent available I was switched to generic. Not sure if this applies to you but the generic is not even close to Cymbalta so I had to go off of it. I wasent sure if you might have switched.
