Thanks for your response. I have always been more sweaty than other people but since I've been on Cymbalta, it's gotten so bad that I have to carry around handkerchiefs all the time. I keep towels in my car for when I'm driving. I've always been fully functional sexually. When I got put on Cymbalta, I had some difficulty with anorgasmia initially, but that side effect abated slightly so that I could at least function but not like before Cymbalta. I think it's worse now because I'm depressed again.

I shy away from TCM and herbs because of the possible interactions with my medications. I'm on too many medicines that react to herbs. Also I have done enough research to know that the herbs sold at TCM shops could be laced with all sorts of nasty chemicals like DDT because they are grown in places where herbicides, fungicides, and fertilizers are used that are banned in most countries because of health risks. If it works for you, then great. I tried it once and not only did I not like the flavor, or having to simmer the herbs, or the expense, it didn't seem to help me much. I have many friends who swear by TCM and seem to have great results. So, maybe you're one of the lucky ones who respond well to TCM. I'm glad it works for you.

Linkadge, thanks for the extra information. Hopefully I can find something to replace the Cymbalta that actually works that won't make me feel like I have hot flashes and prevent me from enjoying sex.
