It is said to be activating. Cymbalta, though prescribed mainly for depression is also being used for CFS/FM. My experiences with it were normal starting fatigue that was gone after a week. I never felt stimulation from the medication, or any other form of SNRI (Cymbalta/Effexor)

Now that you've switched over to Cymbalta, how's it going? Any side effects? Sleepiness, speediness?

Is it taking care of you depression better than Viibryd?
