  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for depressed mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 60 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This was originally given to me as an anti-depressent that is supposed to help with pain. I am not aware of any negative side effects. While I am still always in pain, I can only assume, it would be alot worse without the Cymbalta. The unexpected benefit came as a result of my dosage being doubled for Fibro. Given a number of constant and occasionally overwhelming pressures I am living with, I find it remarkable I haven't gone into any deep depressions and I believe it due to the additional dosage
Cost: < $25 monthly
