Replacement for cymbalta

Patient

Q: Im on cymbalta for depression for 3-4 years now and lost my insurance in Sept. This drug is very expensive , I was on citalophram (celexa) previously but it stopped working. the last 6 months I have felt like cymbalta isnt working either, I have all symptoms of severe clinical depression ,BAD YEAR..lost my corp. job, my apt., and my fiance..I am sooo tired all the time, I did see a therapist recently in hopes that it will help, My question is ...is there an affordable anti depressant on the market that would safely replace the cymbalta? No Zoloft,Effexer or prozac ..they made me feel weird..I have some pristique.but its very pricey too. Thank you for your help..
