Before taking meds I am tired all the time, can't focus, trouble sleeping, fidgety. Do you think it will help. I took Celexa previous it didn't do anything.
Just remember when you first start this your symptoms may even get worse for the first few weeks meaning 1 to 2 then those side effects go away. and you must take for 6 to 8 weeks until you reach the full Benefits of the medication but you should feel some improvement prior to that don't pay that much attention to the side effects they have to list them even if it did not happen to this medication but did to a drug that was simular to this one. Most people have had pretty good luck with this medication. Also never just stop this medication it must be tappered down before going off of it. Hope this does it for you have a good day. Chuck1957
I take 20mg of Cymbalta and it does help with depression and my Fibromyalgia pain. I do think it makes me sweat more than usual but other than that I have no side effects. It is a hard medication to come off for most people so never just stop taking it without your doc's knowledge. Good luck! Also, I take it in the morning so it doesn't interfere with my sleep. If you are still having trouble sleeping talk to your doctor and hopefully he or she will prescribe something to help with that.
