    experiences with cymbalta

    i have generalized anxiety disorder, and it's been amplified since ive been going to college. i do not experience depression, just anxiety, insomia, rapid heartbeat, nervousness

    my doc thought cybalta would be best. so im trying it out at 30 mgs a day. the list of side effects are pretty extreme....are all antidepressants like this ? has anyone's anxiety been helped by this drug ? my anxiety is so bad that i only get 4-5 hrs of sleep each night.

    Re: experiences with cymbalta

    I personally hated Cymbalta. My doctor put me on it about a year ago and my pupils were almost always dilated and it sent my anxiety sky high! I actually have more of a generalized anxiety disorder where I'm anxious or nervous feeling most of the time with the occasional anxiety attack, but the Cymbalta was causing me to have a lot of anxiety attacks. It didn't work for me, but that's not to say that it wouldn't be a good fit for you. Best of luck to you.
