|I have found just the opposite of everyone here. My Dr. put me on cymbalta because of depression, and not only have I lost 15 pounds in a month, but I have really started to feel better.
There are side effects of cymbalta. I suffered from the sweats, the chattering teeth, and the decreased sexual drive. So, we switched to Wellbutrin.
NOT GOOD! I'm easily irritated, my appetite is WAY WAY up, and I simply don't feel "well" again. It's only been 5 days, and I'm going back to the 60mg Cymbalta and leaving the 300mg Wellbutrin alone.
I work in the construction industry, so the sweats are no big deal. The chattering teeth quit after a week, and my wife and I are working through the sexual side effects. I think that my ability to keep myself alive and interact with my children in a responsible fashion completely out-weighs any other side effect that might come from the medicine.
