Question Cymbalta for GAD & mild depression

Hi, im new here.

I have tried every anti-depressant under the sun and they all seem to give me the worst side effects that I end up stopping.

My therapist prescribed me a low dose of Cymbalta (20mg) to start off with. I took a lorazapam and then took my first dose, which was hard for me because I was so nervous to take it!

My question is will this help with my GAD/panic attacks and depression? I also wondered about weight gain with this pill? I don't want to gain any...I actually could stand to lose 20 lbs!

Thank you!
