I'm on Cymbalta, which helps my mood swings, sometimes. I always have headaches and I'm always tired. I also am still so unhappy. Do I need to change my medicine or what else can I do?
How long have you been taking Cymbalta?
If you have been taking this medication for longer than 8 weeks it may be time to talk to your doctor about making a change.
We have a downloadable guide called "Tips for Talking to Your Doctor about Switching Medication " which you may find here.
It does sound like a change may be in order if your depression is still present. Talk to your doctor when you are able.
Kristina, how long have you been on Cymbalta? If it's been under two months, it might just take a little time for it to totally kick in. Otherwise, you should probably talk to your doctor about how you're feeling, as maybe you need something else along with it. As for feeling unhappy, I don't think any drug can make you feel happy, per se, that'll have to come about from changes you make in your life, whether in your living situation or belief system. Are you seeing a therapist? Often times, therapy can be of great help in conjunction with medication. I wish you the best and hope you'll let us know how you're doing.
