Was what my Dr. ordered thinking it might help. He started me slow, and then increased the dosage. After about six weeks I was so anxious I couldn't stand it. I have heard that sometimes anti-depressants can have that effect on people and the anxiety eventually goes away. I was having a really rough time at work, so I had to go off of it and back on Wellbutrin which I'm not sure helps my FM or not. Has anyone else experienced anxiety with Cymbalta? I am new to this....diagnosed 3 months ago, but not new to all the symptoms I'm sad to say.
