  • I had to stop taking it because there is no generic out and I was taking 60mg a day. Its almost $300 a month. I havnt been on and antidepressant since. Thats been almost a year ago now. I had PPD so it really did help get me through that first year. I would recommend this medication over any other antidepressants. Ive taken plenty of them since I was 16 but that was the only one that helped. It does make you sleepy at first and kinda numb to everything thats going on but in my situation I was mean. I would get angry and lash out for stupid things. This helped calm my anger and help me realize these little things arent worth getting angry over. Hope this helped

  • Yes it is possible to get pregnant on cymbalta but I wouldn't recommend it. It is a class C drug, there isn't enough info out there stating the risks to the fetus. This med made me tired for about 1 month then my body adjusted to it. It made me feel so much better but when it is time to get off of it seek help it is not easy.

  • yes its possible to get pregnant while taking it but I agree with the above, once your pregnant and need to stop taking it get help. It is hard especially if your taking more than 60 mg a day.

  • So does this mean you took CYmbalta and eventually got off of it (why?)
