    I have not, but my rheumatologist mentioned that to me for my joint inflammation. Though I have heard from others that it works wonders for your joints alone. My friend told me it should be the brand name, not the generic.

    Hi Chris, I was prescribed cymbalta for depression, a long time ago and unfortunately it did nothing to help my depression and I did have facial neuropathy back then, and it did not help the pain. I am quite resistant to any antidepressant unfortunately. I hope it helps you, blessings, donna

    Chris, back in January my psychiatrist prescribed Lamotrigine and later Cymbalta. My anxiety from Sjorgens was actually bringing on flares. Cymbalta has changed my life. I am much happier now. I can actually sleep without having nightmares. I have not had a flare since I have been on Cymbalta. Because of Sjorgens I had all of my teeth pulled in June ( no flare) I just had surgery for corporl tunnel (no flare) It is amazing! I highly recommend it. You don't know you have taken it other than you are far less stressed. You will also sleep much better. Give it a try. May God bless you as he has me.
