themadhatter Posted November 13, 2010 Share Posted November 13, 2010 So my doc just put me back on cymbalta 30 mg once daily as an alternative to intensive outpatient for some really bad depression. I basically got her to agree to try this before going outpatient since I don't have insurance as of yet. My question is, is it normal to get worse before getting better? It has been yearssince I was on cymbalta so I don't remember how long it took to kick in. Before I was put on it I wasn't psychotic but now I am starting to get worse ie hearing things and maybe seeing things. I say maybe because I was kind of sleepy when I saw shadow people and am not sure if it was a dream or not but I am def hearing voices occasionally. I have been on the cymbalta for about 4 days so I don't think it is helping yet but I am a little nervous about getting much worse before the med kicks in. The doc thinks the low dose will work well with my other meds (in the sig) espcially the abilify. I am just a little nervous. I plan on calling the doc monday since I am not a threat or harm to anyone and can sort of control the pyschosis, I mean I now the things aren't real for now. So is it normal to get worse before getting better on an AD. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
