    but some have with good results, and some with bad. It seems pretty mixed, and I don't think there's a way to tell whether you will be able to tolerate it beforehand.

    But maybe somebody else can be of help. Unfortunately it's always an experiment. If you try it and have difficulties, would you be able to get in to see your doctor quickly?

    Hope you get some more answers...
    all the best,

    I have been on Cymbalta for 4 years now.
    Everyone is different in how meds affect them, but for me, Cymbalta is the only medicine of its kind that my body will tolerate.
    I have no side effects from it, except that it makes me a little drowsy, so I take mine in the evening.
    Hope you find that it, or something else will help you out!
