Cymbalta has been the only antidepressant that has worked for me so far, but it makes me so exhausted. I could fall asleep on the floor any moment. Why is Cymbalta causing such extreme fatigue?
Unfortunately, this is a side effect for some people. I was on Cymbalta many years and endured this issue, but eventually asked to be changed to another antidepressant because I was sleeping too much.
Hi Sphynxxx! I don't know what mg you're on, but I was on 30, and it did the same thing to me. They switched me to 20 mg, and I take before bed and this seemed to resolve it. Hope this may help. Take care, Trkey
cymbalta done the same for me too but it also caused insomnia
Are you still on cymbalta? I have tried everything too and cymbalta works wonders for me, however I can't function on it. I have severe chronic fatigue and can hardly get out of bed most days. Have you tried anything else with it and had any success? I am currently trying edronax!!
I was just recently increased from 60 to 90 mg a day. I've been on it for about 6 yes now and it never made me sleepy. I always had energy with it, lost a lot of weight and the increased dosage is helping tremendously with my fibromyalgia and depression. I did read that the tiredness is a side effect for some.
