Default Cymbaltia?

Does anyone take cymbalta and if so what are your feelings about it. It has been a lifesaver as far as my physcial pain assiciatated with depression. My dr told me today that a lot of people have nausea with it. He said I was one of a few of his payients that it has worked for. Any comments?

BE CAREFUL... my doctor gave me samples to try. It worked great when added to my Effexor but little did I know it wasn't covered by my insurance. Therefore- I had to go thru major withdrawal! Vomitting, coordination problems, hysterics, chills, shakes- you know- like coming off any major drug like alcohol or heroin. Please, Please check with your insurance before you get used to it!!! It's too new to the market for many to cover. I don't want you to go thru what I did!
