I do not like the side effects of cymbalta, heavy sweating, no sexual desire and can not reach an orgasm at all. I am also taking 1 mg. of ativan twice a day and ambien to sleep. That is why I proposed Xanax, just take that for the anxiety and tapper off the cymbalta and get rid of the ativan . I do not want to take an antidepressant with so many side effects, especially sexually. I am a newlywed and recent college graduate and am experiencing many life changes. My Dr. thinks thats xanax is too addictive and I should just get over the side effects of cymbalta.
I am currently taking 90 mg/d of Cymbalta for anxiety, is xanax a good substitute to Cymbalta?

I'm no doctor, but there are other medications for anxiety, for example Buspar. I was on that for years, and it helped a lot. Of course, always check with your doctor for advice - just had to add that in there.
When you're a newlywed, and young, and a doctor just tells you to get over not having a sex drive - find yourself another doctor. You're much too young not to enjoy sex - live!
