Cymbalta For Anxiety

How is an anti-depressant (Cymbalta) supposed to help my social Anxiety?

I was recently prescribed Cymbalta for my social Anxiety to take on a daily basis. But I’m not depressed, I just get anxious when I’m around people I don’t know. So why do doctors keep prescribing me anti-depressants? I tried Lexapro in the past but it didn’t really do anything and made me feel worse after a few weeks. I just don’t want to take a med that’s going to make me feel emotionally numb.
Well she also prescribed me a very limited supply of Klonopin to take as needed when the really Bad Anxiety hits, and benzos have helped in the past but only if I take at least 1mg but they won’t give my anything above .25mg. They just keep giving me anti-depressants and I’m not sure what they’re supposed to be doing.

Anti depressants do help your general feeling of well being tho you do have to find the right one. I see someone has said they didn’t help them at all so I’ll be the person whose anxiety did respond well to anti-depressants. Give it a try? 6 weeks in a reasonable period. If you have the same experience I did you’ll be glad you persevered. I found that daily situations that used to make me anxious just didn’t anymore. It was when I was squashed on a train and realised I hadn’t noticed that I knew they’d found the right thing. Then when I was used to not feeling anxious and I came off them I’d lost a lot of the fear.
