Cymbalta?
« on: August 22, 2014, 10:10:38 PM »
I took zoloft for 5 years, but have been off meds for 3.5 years now. Dr. Prescribed cymbalta bc he says my symptoms are from anxiety (tingling, twitching, numbness, electric shock feeling). I dont want to take zoloft bc that med caused twitching before it was a problem, and I don't want to make the twitching worse.

No antidepressant is intrinsically better than any other, either generally, or for a particular disorder, however, one or two may be for an individual. Unfortunately, the only way to know whether Cymbalta will work for you is to try it. The only significant problem with it is that being a slow-release formulation quitting is a little more complicated than discontinuing a conventional immediate-release med.
