    I was taking Wellbutrin at night and Prozac in the morning. I decided to ask my Dr. to put me on Cymbalta so I would only have to take one antidepressant instead of 2.

    He told me to take the Cymbalta in the morning but I already have a really bad problem with daytime sedation and take Provigil for that. I tried taking the Cymbalta in the morning for 2 days and just could not get going, even though I was taking the provigil. So I decided to take it at night. Now, I'm having a hard time sleeping which I don't get because it makes me sleepy during the day. Also, does anyone get the side effect of their ears popping? Thanks for any thoughts you can share with me. LuAnn.

    I have been on Cymbalta for a while.I take it in the morning.You will feel tired for a while but it goes away.I have no problem with it at all now.I never had a any side effects at all.Maybe i am lucky.It is helping my pain too.I take trazodone at night for sleep.I wish you luck.Give it a try and hope it works for you.

    I guess I'll just hang in there and it give it more time. I think I will continue to try and use it at night where it does cause sedation and see if I can get used to that. Thanks so much for your input. LuAnn
