some of the side effects on here, I guess this is why he put me on it.. lol I am scared to take it becuase i think it is going to make me high or I will have hullusinations or something or go into an uncontrolled panic attack. Can anyone tell me how they felt after taking this med? How long after did you feel anything? And also do you feel better? Good or Bad?
I was on cymbalta 30mg then 60mg For Me it just gave me more anxiety and depression I got weined by going back down to 30 and started welburin xl 150 the off cymbalta and on welbutrin 300mg and feel much better. This is just me I did not like the way I felt on Cymbalta. Unfortunatly it takes a good 6 weeks to work and that sucks because you do not know if it is going to work if you feel as though you are getting worse contact you Doctor I am sure he/she will work with you. my doctor added ativan for the anxiety I was having. The welbutrin is working great I still take the ativan I have learned the hard way NEVER stop a med without a Doctors help. if you feel the cymbalta is not working DO NOT just stop it. There are alternatives and other meds that can be added. I did not think I would ever get through these last 16 weeks which it took after trying 3 meds Lexapro,Cymbalta and finally Wellbutrin.
I hope this helps I will also say Welbutrin gave me back some of my energy and now almost all of it. Never settle help your doctor make you better and stay on the meds do not think okay I feel good now so I will stop. Did that myself and this is how I ended up in this mess.Good luck God Bless and I hope this helps somewhat. You can contact me any time if you have questions Barb
I was wondering if you also have depression? My doc put me on Cymbalta for depression and anxiety. For me, it made my anxiety worse and I eventually had to come off it completely. If you just have anxiety, I think something with perhaps less side effects, etc. would be of better help. Good luck.
is what I have used for many years, with great success. With in 15- 20 Mins. your minded will stop running one hunderd miles a hour and you Will feel a complete calming effect come over you. It will feel like you stepped out of
a cattle stamped, into a grass Field with a calf.
