    in four weeks I went from being unable to sleep and extream depression, even crying . I could not even be around my grand chrildren. It is wonderful. It also has, much to my suprise and excitement, it has no sexual side effects for me..I was on Cymbalta 3 years ago for pain management from back surgery and I was difficult to have an errection and impossible to have climax.
