Do not be frightened. Whatever is going on you will get through this.
It does get better, I am now off antidepressants and doing really well.
I have seen several really old posts that people had your experience. Back from around January. Most people won't come back here and post when they get better, you know, trying to put it all behind them and everything.
I'll be on for a little while longer and will try to answer as best as I can. Hang on.

So of course, we think we should feel better, because we are told so.
Some people take Drammamine (otc motion sickness med) to help with that feeling. And yes, some days you will feel much better and then, hello, here is comes again.
If it is the physical stuff, hang in there. If you are spiraling downward emotionally, talk to us here, but please let the people in your life know how you are feeling, have them come here and read some of our stories. Real people, real experiences. Not what the docs are being spoon fed by the drug companies.
I tried to put my status to show I am online, but can't get it to work. If you have any questions, I am going to be online for a while longer tonight, so ask away!

i was put on zoloft the day after my baby was born and i was still in the hospital.. that was six months ago and the beginning of my nightmare. two months zoloft, two months lexapro and then almost two months cymbalta. finally i suspected that it was the drugs all along making me feel so horrible and that is when i decided to get off the cymbalta and never take an AD again!!

This fear, I totally understand. Before Cymbalta, I had never taken an antidepressant and went on for situational depression. Well sister, I thought that my brains were permanently damaged in ways that would never be repaired, but knew I was never going to take Cymbalta again.
i guess if i hear that other people had it come back and eventually got better i could relax, but now i think i am just psyching myself out that i did some kind of permanent damage.
I can only speak for myself, but everything I thought was damaged, ruined or not going to work again is all just fine. Emotionally and physically, I am pretty much intact. Not permanently broken.
This has to really suck for you because you did not take it very long. Our brain chemistry is all so individual and different, so it is impossible to tell you when/where/how you will start to feel better. Sorry, but really it is so different for everybody because everybody is different.
Do you have your friends/family helping you with this? Are they supportive?
