Default Cymbalta for depression?


Have been in a depressive mood for the past 2 years. Did a general health checkup which ruled out any serious causes. My HBA1C has been averaging at 6,6. So with the general health fine, the conclusion is that it must be my fluctuating blood sugar levels. I'm on a low-carb diet as well.

Feel tired all the time, not motivated to do anything, no emotions etc.

I got described Cymbalta Duloxetine 30 mg, 1 tablet per day. As this antidepressant worked for me in the past, I'm considering trying it again for a short period of time to get me back on track.

Has anyone got experiences of antidepressants such as Cymbalta to combat Depressive Diabetic periods?

I haven't been on antidepressants so can't help with that. Are you taking other medications that could be causing the tiredness, statins for example.

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.
