I would like people to know that I have been to sseveral psychologists and psychiatrist and was prescribed several different meds for depression. Most of them didn't help at all or would hipe me up enough to walk to Texas. It wasn't until cymbalta came into the medical field that I was prescribed cymbalta for depression. The thing I first noticed was the aching pains I have had since puberty were gone. I thought I was just a winer so I kept my pains to myself. I thought they were normal. What a relief!!! My depression also got better because I no longer had to worry about the pain and what was wrong with me. I now think I may have fibromyalgia which a doctoe had diagnosed but I thought it was just (in my mind) as they say. I just want to let those who think they are in a major depression, it may be that cymbalta is worth a try.
