Try it!: You obviously know what Cymbalta (duloxetine) is supposed to feel like and what it does for you. You would therefore know if there is any difference while taking the generic. Only people like you can tell us if the generic is good or not. And hopefully you'd save a little money too. If it's not the same, let your doctor know asap and go back on the brand. Thanks for your help!
