    I no longer can aford to take this med. By far this has been the one antidepressant that has allowed me to lead a somewhat normal life. It's been more than 4 weeks since I have taken Cymbalta. The depression and anger/rage has returned.At times I can not control the rage. I become overwhelmed and have thoughts of hurting myself,again. Why does this drug have to cost so much.$240.00 a month

    The side effects were terrible for me. My jaws would ache and I was always tired no matter what time of day I took it. needless to say, I quit taking it and will never take it again.

    THE DRUG IS VERY HELPFUL, IF YOU TAKE IT PROPERLY.
