Today marks 3 weeks on Cymbalta for fibro , depression and anxiety. It was supposed to be the 1,2 punch to it all. okay so physically I feel better pain-wise in the morning when i wake up (i dont have to lay there as long before i can get up. Also im still really ache but it does take the edge off. so success!!! Anxiety wise i feel like I'm having the same results that i had with prozac. My thoughts are still calm. Depression wise I'm going through hell. I'm just sad all the time and sometimes i don't even know why. With sleep it's still really touching and go but I'm up every morning by 4 am. I just feel like I'm never going to sleep longer than that. Negative symptom wise i kinda feel like im going through menopause- hot flashes, headaches, some days i cant eat, and my IBS is still really bad. I get lightheaded easily. I think its to soon to say this is a good or bad fit for me but this is where i am in the journey.

Good news!
Depression wise I'm going through hell. I'm just sad all the time and sometimes i don't even know why. With sleep it's still really touching and go but I'm up every morning by 4 am. I just feel like I'm never going to sleep longer than that.
Are these essentially the same as before?

Aside from IBS, are these all new?

Thanks for updating us. It's nice to hear how someone is doing and learn in the process ❤️
