Went to the Dr. today and she suggested I try Cymbalta. I am currently on 30 mg of Buspar and I also have Ativan when needed. She thought that adding Cymbalta would help with my GAD. I have taken Effexor in the past and hated it. Has anyone taken Cymbalta and were there side effects? Posative effects? I am looking at a months worth of free samples and am a bit weary of taking them. She did say the side effects were quite minimal.
i used to take effexor too, i hated it also. i have been on cymbolta 2 yrs now, and latley i have been hateing it. when i take it, i stay tired and zombie like, also really ill at everyone. in the begining it was great. but everyone is different. now i used to take lexapro too. it was great i stopped taking it because i felt great, i thought i was over depression and anxiety. and after a while i fell apart again and started cymbolta. i am thinking about going to the doc to go back on lexapro. just my opinion.. good luck--kalie
