ANTIDEPRESSANT AND APPETITE SUPPRESANT
I am on 60 mg of Cymbalta a day. I have put on a lot of weight in the past year due to many things. Can I take an appetite suppressant whilst on Cymbalta and if so which one do you recommend?

Generally I dont recommend using appetite suppressants together with antidepressants 'cause in some cases it may worsen depression. If you need to, try a herbal product - ask at your pharmacy.
