Cymbalta. I have roughly a week left on the cymbalta and up until now have been able to manage both the anxiety and mood swings with herbal teas. Lemon Balm and passionflower both really helped to start, but things are getting out of control. I never know if I am going to go into a rage or just break down and cry like my heart is breaking. The anxiety is getting to the point of panic attacks. I feel like I am suffocating and am not comfortable going out of the house. My doctor doesn't want to put me on anything until I have been off the cymbalta for 6 weeks, but there has to be something I can do.
