I am a 22 year old female with depression and anxiety. My psychologist prescribed me with 60mg of Cymbalta and it worked great!! Recently after the winter holidays I started feeling depressed and anxious again, thought it was just from being around my family at the time, but after a few months it only got worse, even after being away from them. I saw my psychologist again and he upped my dosage to 90mg and told me to get more sunlight since daylight savings was coming up. I was very optimistic as Cymbalta really worked for me before. However it is coming up on 5 weeks this Friday since my dosage has been upped and I don't feel any better. I am going through a super stressful time in my life right now and will be graduating college in May, so this definitely isn't helping. I will be seeing my doctor again in early May. I know they say it takes 4-6 weeks for it to start working again, but like I said I'm almost at 5 weeks and nothing. So I am wondering if it is just taking extra long for me because I'm so stressed... I'm really hoping it works again soon because I can't keep feeling like this.
