I really have no faith in my prescribing doctor but I was given Cymbalta after landing in a psych hospital due to severe depression. The doctor there put me on 30mgs of Cymbalta and it has def helped back pain tremendously!!! However, I am still struggling with zero energy, lethargy, lack of any interests previously rewarding. I don't feel like dressing, getting out of my house, really no interests in doing anything at all. I don't know what to do. I tend to have anxiety but quit taking xanex due to abuse. I just want to find what will help me get back to the person I used to be, outgoing, energetic, fun, a real go getter. Now I barely can get anything done without forcing myself. I don't really have suicidal thoughts but just thoughts of despair, the feeling that I'll always have to live this way. I don't trust doctors in their knowledge of how to treat me. I'm at my wits end and have not having a life. Please, any suggestions. I have thought about upping my dosage to 60mgs per day but don't know if that's the answer. I haven't had side effects as described by many people.
