Went to a new Psych Doc for meds and she prescribed Cymbalta. Just wondering if anyone has any experiences with it?

My experience with Cymbalta has been pretty good thus far. The worst side effects have been some short term problems with constipation, decrease in appetite, a pretty bad case of the zaps (which I actually liked), mild drowsiness (though I'm a lot more aware), and difficulty achieving orgasm. I'm at 90 mg a day right now.

Brain Zaps eh? Sounds interesting. They say its very rare when your on the drug, only usually happens when you just stop taking it quickly

My psychiatrist says it's a placebo effect, but I disagree. About four hours after I started to take Cymbalta, I started to feel absolutely euhporic. That was accompanied by a constant shivering (almost like what I like to affectionately call the "pee shivers"). It's also not only centralized in the brain. My whole body feels it, but it has definitely decreased in intensity as time has gone on.

I think this is where my drowsiness comes from, because I find it quite pleasant to just lie down and enjoy the sensation (which leads to sleep).

Bringing it back up to the top, I can't believe only BJK has been on Cymbalta
