I value your thoughts! Let's face it, at this point it's all trial and error in AD's b/c we really have little idea of how they work :)

> > I'm on my 5th week of Cymbatla (60 mgs). Initially, Cymbalta had few side effects and controlled my anxiety. But within the past 10 days, the side effects have really picked up (sexual, sweating [a lot!]) and I feel anxious. In some ways I'm not suprised -- each new AD comes along with a lot of promises that generally don't pan out. I'm meeting with my doc next week and I'm considering 3 different routes:

> hi, steve,
> i just reread your original post again. i am very fuzzy here lately due to food-deprivation (over the last 48 hours), so sorry about that. for that reason i think i'm gonna take a break from posting, lol. most of my views on the neurotransmitters still stand, but, anyway, looking at your personal situation, you had indicated that you had done well on an SSRI and cymbalta previously, so..to reanswer your question according to the options you listed, i would reduce to 40 mg first. i doubt you're still interested in my opinion at this point, but i just wanted to share that anyway. i was wrong not to take your personal response to these drugs into account. i should probably say more, but i honestly can't think at this point..
