Cymbalta Anxiety Reviews

Fri, 10 Jun 2011
My dr. prescribed Cymbalta due to my mild Anxiety and depression, since havng my children. I'm a mother of 2 (1yr old amp; 2yr old). I have been on it for 8 days now. I'm so tired, I can barely keep my head up, I have no appetite, I'm so dizzy I don't feel like I can stand up, I am irritable, and just feel sick! I am worse off now, than before! It's hard to take care of myself, much less my children. I just want to sleep all day. I just needed something to take the edge off and help me with Anxiety, so I can have more patience with my kids and husband and deal with life's stressors. This medicine is horrible! I thought the side effects would fade after a few days, but it's worse, no matter what time of day I take it. I will never take it again! I just hope I can make it through the day...can't wait until it's out of my system.
