Hi, Chuskey! Cymbalta is an antidepressant that is sometimes prescribed for chronic and tension headaches. Unfortunately, some of the potential side effects are an increase in depression and anxiety... even if you didn't have them previously. These effects generally resolve after just a few days to a week or two.
If this persists for more than two weeks or becomes more severe report it to your doctor ASAP.
Best regards, Wildcat
