I was taking 60mg but was exhausted after a few months of taking it still, so I had to go down to 30mg. I felt like I went downhill after that.. I could definitely tell the dosage went down and I had a bad week... but now things are getting better so I must be getting used to it! I hope the Yasmin works out for you. It has helped me with so much and I love it.
thnks for the reply, well i have been on the cymbalta for about 2 months and i finally have gotten over the side effects, except i seem to stay really tired and feel like its getting me down and sleep, hmmm, i have no idea what that is...... so, i think im going to wing myself off the cymbalta.... im not depressed all the time, just when its 2 weeks before my period i get real depressed and aggravated, mean, ect... i used to be on cymbalta 60 mg at the beginning of last yr. and the med. worked for about 6 months and that was all, so i got off of it.. i have been on all kinds of anti. depressants and nothing ever seems to work and it makes me so mad and feel very hopeless... and whats really bad, it when the dr. says, "WE HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING AND NOTHING SEEMS TO HELP AND I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO!" so, that depress me more.... she has alwaz wanted to put me on BC pill but i have my tube tied b/c of yeast infections so i really didnt wanna go that direction. yeast infections every month is no fun... so i decided i would go ahead and give them a try... i was going to try them with the cymbalta but we will see if it works without them and if not., i have no idea what else to do....
sorry so long but i guess i needed to rant....... thnks
