The same has happened to me!
Even those who do gain at the start of therapy tend to return to their normal weight profiles over time. But I did switch drugs because I was on Zoloft for a year and a half and gained 30 lbs.

Cymbalta is the name-brand version of the drug duloxetine, which is used to treat generalized anxiety disorder and depression, as well as to treat pain and tingling associated with certain diseases and conditions.
Please try again later. My experience has been that on Effexor I ate like a horse!!! I drink occasionally but only 1 glass of wine no more ever. Calgon, take me away! After reading the adverse reactions to this pill my doctor should have never prescribed it to me I am only 37, this is not fair to feel the way I feel.
I have and it is like living in hell day and night. BB code is On. The cymbalta has worked wonders. Cymbalta weight loss side effects. All in all, if you do not move or excersise much, even with the loss of appetite and not eating much, you are going to eventually gain some weight with this medicine.
Good luck to all.

It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills metabolife and xenedrine that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet.
Take it at night if the nausea bothers you, until your body adjusts. I love this anti-depressant. We are unable to collect your feedback at this time. The only one that worked for me is wellbutrin which is energizing.
I have been on Cymbalta 20 mg for a year and it has helped me tremendously - I have lost weight - about 5 lbs.
I waited a while before I tried Cymbalta.
