> I'm going to give this (Cymbalta starting at 30 mg for a week, then 60 mg) a try instead of going back on Nardil. My main complaints at the moment are feeling rather flat, sluggish, and having very little drive. I've not tried a SNRI before, so wish me luck, please?

It would be obvious to say those are feelings of depression.

Yes, good luck, I hope it works for you. It is a subtle agent and does take quite a while (personally at least) for it to reach a level that gives relief. It is less harsh than Effexor.
I went all the way to 120, though there are no studies that say 120 is any better than 60.

The one thing that you should probably be informed as a patient taking a SNRI is that if at some point you do decide to discontinue it, SNRIs are known to have a hard discontinuation syndrome.

That wasn't meant to say you shouldn't go ahead and I do wish you well when I say that.
