I use melatonin and a homeopathic remedy called Calm's Forte for sleep.  I'd try something like that before I'd resort to medication.  As for Cymbalta, haven't done that one and wouldn't, it's bad enough going through what drugs that only target serotonin do let alone one that targets two neurotransmitters.  If you don't suffer from depression, I'd think that's the wrong med anyway. But I'm sure there are many on this site who have liked it; that's baseball.
