    and the weight gain...i am aobut to go off from cymbalta, i just get myoclonic jerking, sweating, weight gain, doesn't help w/pain. andi don't handle the higher doses. so i am on 20 mgs. only. i have no energy what so ever....started taking ambien and that is just making want to sleep more often all day long if i could...left message w/dr yesterday, because it isnt helping with the depression... so i am thinking i do have a lot of other things going on.

    i just wan to breath life again, does lexapro help withougt gaining weight?

    any suggestions?

    I liked it and did not gain - everyone is different though. I did not gain on Cymbalta either but had other issues.

    You may want to give it a try - my mother & mother-in-law use it and like it as well.
