  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • I am suffering from severe depression due to the terminal illness of my partner. Just lately, I seem to want to sleep all day and night. I find it hard waking up. I also have very little appetite and have noticed weight gain despite this. Two months ago I made an attempt on my life. Since then the citalopram has been doubled from 10mg to 20mg. I am also suffering with a stuffy head feeling and sore eyes most of the time.

  • Meds are not ridding me of headaches or migraines, & now I have insomnia & acne! :( No longer on Verapamil or Simvistatin, just over one yr now. Off of Amitriptalyne since August, off of Celexa since Sept/October... allergies & insomnia crept up during transition from Amitriptaline/Celexa to Cymbalta.
