How many of you cannot take anti-depressants because of all the unwanted side effects that out way the advantages? I have tried every one on the market and today was my last day of trying anymore that come out new. I was given Cymbalta yesterday 30 mg. Took it this morning and was sick as a dog all day along with being dizzy. I know anti-depressants are suppose to help with pain but they are not for me. I do take Xanax and have for the past 5 years with no problem at all, except probably I am addicted to it, but at this point I don't care. My son who is in med school thinks I am being ridiculous about the anti-depressants and said I really need to be on one. Well he can take it for me, cause not another one will go in my mouth.
