I was just given cymbalta and have only taken it for 2 days so far. I think it's starting to help, for weeks I would get this jittery nervous energy that was going through my whole body and it wouldn't go away no matter what I did (meditation, breathing, xanax etc) so I finally went to the doc. Well I think the cymbalta's starting to work because I'm not feeling the same scary all over fluttering I was feeling before... at least not constantly, I've gotten a few hours of relief here and there and it's a blessing, so I'm really hopeful about this. But, I've noticed now, I have 2 of the symptoms listed- the appetite suppression (where was that one when I needed it?!) and nausea. I've noticed that it lasts pretty much up until a few hours before the next dose. But it's like I can't eat, can't even force myself, food doesn't taste good and I like can't even stand to swallow it. I had just started a good healthy eating plan and had lost 5 pounds so not being able to eat is going to screw with my metabolism b/c I could barely choke down scrambled eggs so chicken is out of the picture for now. I'm rambling, I'm sorry, this is my 1st post, I jsut want to know if anyone else has gone through this? Does it last long? Will I adjust after I take it longer? Are there any other "personality" side effects (I don't like meds to begin with but with antidepressants, I hear they can make you feel not yourself, like robotic). Any advice and personal experience is truly welcomed. Thanks so much.
