I am now taking Cymbalta for anxiety it was for pain, my psychiatrist changed it. I have never had any side effects or weight gain at the 30mg. When increasing it to 60mg will that change? I am also on Topamax which has the effect of an appetite suppressant and weight loss. Thanks
Hi Lanabana. When I started taking Cymbalta I started gaining weight right away. I went to 60 mg right from the start. I have been taking it for 8-9 years and I gained over 80 pounds during that time. I had many of the side effects that are listed and they far outweighed the benefits (if any). I started tapering off last June (2017) and in a few months I started losing the weight. Some of the side effects are lessening and some are gone. I hope this answers your question.
