You may gradually see improvement after the first couple of weeks, but takes upto a month to feel maximum benefit. Be patient, don't be alarmed if you experience some mild nausea and headache at first, it will subside, and I think you'll find it to be a good medication.

I tried it for 2 months. First month at 50 then Dr increased it to 100. I felt no different. Please dont give up after a short time. I am back on Cymbalta 60 and doing better. Sometimes our bodies just need a break from what really works. I feel alot better and I know its because of switching back to Cymbalta. Try to ride it out for as long as possible but if you are extremly worse get back to your Dr. I hope this helps. Good luck!
