DONT take Cymbalta!!
I have had OCD since I was around 11. I have been misdiagnosed with OCD, and tourette's syndrome when they first diagnosed my OCD. I have also been diagnosed with Major Depression Disorder, they thought at first it was bi-polar because my moods can change fast. They had two people decide it was MDD, for both OCD and depression TOTAL I have been on atleast if not more then 111 some worked, then wore off, others seemed to make the OCD worse, others didn't work at all. I also have general anxiety disorder. I think I also have a narcissistic personality disorder as well, or anti social personality disorder.
I am now 26. The OCD has gotten better than what it was when I was younger. It sucked. My depression is also getting better.
Doxepin worked wonders for my OCD but it also made me sleep ALOT.
Recently I tried something new, Cymbalta. I was told "you will feel it in your system in days, instead of weeks". I couldn't sleep, I had sexual problems, nightmares, tiredness. I felt drunk at work, I was dizzy, tired, I felt like I was out of my body. Started reading the horror stories about people trying to quit the medicine...I quit instantly. Not worth it.
