Our expert says:
Not all antidepressants work well for everyone. Most work usefully in about 70% of those who take it, so one may need to try 2 or 3 to find the one that best suits your own unique cheistry. Cymgen seems to be a generic form of the over-popular Cymbalta.
And it generally takes 2 to 3 weeks for a new drug or a changed dose to show whether it will be useful.
If you are also seeing a psychologist, then IF that psychologist is working with you on CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) that could be really useful, and worth persisting with. And you really should see your prescibing psychiatrist to discuss exactly the issues you rise here, as he needs to hear them and take them into consideration. Maybe Cymbalta / CymGen isn;t the right drug for you - it helps some people and doesn't help others, and all good shrinks would be familiar with several alternatives.
