Cymbalta for Depression

Cymbalta® (duloxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication used to treat several conditions, including depression. In studies, people taking Cymbalta for depression had more improvement in their symptoms, compared to those not taking it.
Cymbalta is part of a class of drugs called serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, or SNRIs for short. It helps to block the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine (specific chemicals in the brain) so that more remains in the space between the brain's nerve cells. This gives the chemicals a better chance of activating the receptors on the next nerve cell. As a result, the levels of these chemicals in the brain are more balanced and symptoms of depression can be alleviated.
