Trying to lose weight while taking Cymbalta.

Is anyone who is taking Cymbalta having trouble losing weight? I used to be 110 pounds at 5'5", but since taking Cymbalta I'm at 150 and can't seem to lose the weight. I work really hard on healthier eating and working out, but the scale won't budge. I attribute some of that to muscle gain, but I'm not dropping pant sizes and I don't feel or look any thinner ( I even measure inches and I don't see a change). Then, I get discouraged and fall off the wagon...Does anyone have any suggestions? Is anyone experiencing the same thing?

I have no idea about Cymbalta! If I were you I'd replace it with Garcinia Cambogia, It is the most well-received nutritional supplements used by the broad public for losing weight.

Why not explain why you're taking this powerful drug in the first place? Depression, anxiety, neuropathy or fibromyalgia? Many people were 5'5" and 110 pounds at some point in their lives, man or woman. I was 5'5" and weighed 110 lbs...when I was 12??? When someone posts a weight loss question without any helpful background information, it's like playing Wheel of Fortune with two letters...what's the point?

Yeah, karenduff, she may have major depressive disorder and you advise her to stop taking a prescribed medication and replaced with voodoo supplements. Nice!
