      I’ve been on citalopram (Celexa) for 4 months and it isn’t having much effect.

      I’m due to see my doctor next week but I’m wondering if anyone has had some success with an anti-depressant they can recommend?

      I had severe anxiety and depression for over 15 years and no medication cured it.

      Eventually, a new doctor prescribed me with Cymbalta Duloxetine.

      It cured my anxiety and depression within about a month.

      Best medication I’ve ever been on and saved my life.

      I believe Duloxetine treats major depression instead of just depression.

      Well, 2 months ago my doctor agreed to put me on a trial of duloxetine and I think I can safely say: I feel “normal”! Meaning I have some happiness in my life again. I didn’t think it would work.

      I really appreciate the suggestion @Robby.

            Yes, Steve, I have been really well. I have experienced my first happiness for about 2 years.

            I am so grateful for Duloxetine and for Robby’s recommendation.

            You don’t know what a difference this has made.

            I believe Duloxetine targets major depression.

            Thank you @Robby.
