I was told to stop Cymbalta after 3 years/it stopped helping and just start Prozac 20mg. I was so nervous couldn't sit still very panicky this morning. I was so afraid to start taking it and don't know why. I had to do something b/c I was getting more and more depressed. Please someone give me some great news about this med. I can't afford to gain weight either. Please Please tell me something good.
