Antidepressants

Well today I finally got into a new doctor...the good news is that she listened...she believes what I am going thru,  but gave me a perscription for cymbalta!!  I am hesitant to go on antidepressants...mainly because I am not depressed (just tired)!!  Has anyone had any luck?

What is your diagnosis ? I know many physicians are prescribing anti-depressants because for some reason the anti-depressants help the symptoms. This has nothing to do with depression, btw.

I would strongly recommend checking out the Health Pages in the fibro / CFS forum and read the treatments recommended by the EXPERTS. Here's the link:

And here are some comments that I made this morning in the fibro / CFS board. I mention physicians who have (had?) CFS and/or fibro and successfully treated their disease. (I call these "syndromes" a disease and thank God a blood test for CFS is in the making !)
