Several years ago, my doctor gave me a prescription for Cymbalta. Since it had not been on the market long, I found the prescription was over $200 and my insurance did not cover any of it. Now, a few years later and dozens more of the same class of drug on the market, I am able to get it for just over $8.00. I am now in the process of tapering off another drug for depression, arthritis, and fibromyalgia before starting Cymbalta. I am wondering if anyone here has taken Cymbalta and if it helped you. I'm afraid I'm going to be disappointed. I'm desperate to find something for my pain. It has been overwhelming for the past several months. Does anyone have any experience with it?
