Earlier I had written a post titled Cymbalta Withdrawal Symptoms Suck where I had gone on a rant of all the shitty Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms I was feeling. To my surprise, that post became very popular and a lot of people have weighed in about their experience while weening off Cymbalta.

Cymbalta has effected my libido…negatively effected my libido. I had previously talked about the fact that I thought my Cymbalta for depression wasn’t cutting it for me.

I had earlier posted that I felt Cymbalta wasn’t working for me as an antidepressant. Along with not working on many depression symptoms Cymbalta lowered my libido. Finally I had an appointment with a Psychiatrist and I was shocked at what she told me.
