Cymbalta is an antidepressant medication. It has been approved for use in treating symptoms of depression and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). It is also used to treat fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy. Cymbalta is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI). Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain and depression has been linked to the inability to create enough serotonin. Norepinephrine is another neurotransmitter linked to depression. Cymbalta targets both serotonin and norepinephrine, unlike SSRIs, which only target serotonin. Both of these neurotransmitters can impact mood.

Clinical trials have shown Cymbalta to improve mood, increase appetite and allow for better sleep. It can also increase energy and decrease nervousness.

Don’t get me wrong—I still have little short term me...
