cymbalta and trouble sleeping

Hey Everyone -

I've been on Cymbalta for a little over three weeks now. Started feeling some relief from my depression after about 2 weeks, but for the past 3-4 nights, I've been having a lot of difficulty sleeping. I have no problem falling asleep, but I have been waking up CONSTANTLY throughout the night.

Has anyone else experienced this side effect? Does it eventually go away or get better? Any natural/herbal supplements that might help?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I feel like I've been going crazy the past few days due to not getting a good night's sleep......

What time of the day do you take it? Be careful on alternative products as some of them cancel out the AD's effectiveness.

Re: cymbalta and trouble sleeping

I take it first thing in the morning. At first, it made me really tired during the day, but that side effect seems to have gone away. Now, the problem is staying asleep during the night - I wake up at 1 am, then 2 am, then 3 am, etc.....

Any suggestions?
