You’ll never know unless you try - different medicines affect people differently, like how Ativan (Lorazepam) caused me to hallucinate, but it’s my friends go-to drug when she’s having a panic attack.
It took me years to accept that taking some kind of medication may help - in fact, I’ve been on meds since I was 10yo, and only fully accepted it a few months ago.
The best bet would probably be to take it for the month and see if there’s a different - ask people you see on a daily basis if they notice a difference because they usually spot things before you do.
A lot of it is trial and error. I mean, I have yet to find a perfect fit over the past 10 years, and I’m still looking. It’s easier now that I’ve accepted it (I was damn stubborn and out to prove that I didn’t need meds and could handle things on my own).
I am currently on Prozac. It helps with my OCD and Depression. My sister is on Prozac, too, and she finds it works. She took herself off of it for a while and noticed a change and started taking it again. But again, everyone is different.
I’m still searching for a better fit, something to help my ADHD (it’s a bitch) and help me concentrate. A could of people from the Autism Workshops I went to recently are on Riddlin and, based on their personal experiences, I’ll be bringing it up with my Psychiatrist tomorrow.
I personally don’t know the benefits of Cymbalta, nor the side effects, so I can’t give any direct advice, but I guess you’ll just have to try it and see. If you or the people around you notice a negative change, let your doctor know. And if they (or you) notice a positive change, take note.
