I think you're fine. I have recently started taking Cymbalta and remember at some times feeling a bit warm and even had worse anxiety the first couple days I was taking it. You're just a little panicky. Try toß relax and distract yourself.

You don't have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

Those are normal SSRI side effects. It can be a bit disconcerting but totally normal.

Well, I can't really compare it to much because it's the only thing I've been on but I do find that it helps with my anxiety and overall mood a lot. When not taking it I basically get to the point of not being able to function because I become so obsessive with health concerns and it starts to affect my life.

It's also useful as a pain medication which works wonders for me because I've been diagnosed as having mild stenosis of the spine which was causing me bad back pain.

Side effects for me were a little bit of constipation and that's pretty much it!
