Hidden Side Effects

I was 18 years old when my doctor put me on cymbalta for anxiety. He failed to mention however that cymbalta can sometimes cause "overactivation syndrome" in some patients. As a result the happy teen that I was soon turned in to an angry, overly emotional kid who slept around. I had never even thought about that before!!! My family was devistated and my life has been forever affected. As soon as my parents described my behavior to the doctor he freaked out and took me off it immediately. He apologized but I am still affected today. Doctors should be required to tell patients about these sometimes horrific side effects!!!!!
