thank you for asking!
Why are you afraid? Lexapro and cymbalta are both antidepressants with a little difference in their mechanism of action but results are the same. Depression cure. Thats it. No worries and no need to get in to details.
One is SSRI and the other is SNRI. your doctor had some thing in mind to shift the meds.Trust him.
Take care
