I was prescribed cymbalta by a gp to help with my fibro and also my depression (4th anti-depressant for me to try). However, after 7 weeks on 60mg my pains aren't any better and in fact since starting (on the 30mg) I have had pains and stiffness in my fingers, and now I have had sciatica in both legs for days. I am sleeping during the day even more than before (which is a feat). My mood has not been helped either. At times I feel like I am going out of my mind, other times I just feel flat. And a few nights ago I felt so irritable and angry I could have gladly killed someone (even had a vision of me doing it). I just don't know what to do anymore. I have not left my flat for weeks. I don't want to see or speak to anyone. The dog has ripped apart the sofa as she is so bored, and I'm not even mad. All the pieces are scattered around the living room, and I couldn't care less. I've started drinking when I hadn't really touched much alcohol for the past two years. And I've spent way too much money (online!) on clothes (pointless as I hardly ever get dressed properly) and decorating materials (I have started so many projects in the house I can't cope and everything is a disaster). My daughter who normally helps look after everything has been staying at her dad's this past week and she won't be home for ages yet. My son goes there tmrw for the week. I am scared to be left on my own.
What have other's experienced with this drug? I'm tired of changing anti-depressants. I think it's messing up my brain.
