What is a good medication to take with cymbalta for anxiety?

I recently switched from Xanax to Valium because Xanax has a short term half life where as Valium is 40 hours therefore causing no rebound anxiety. I had been on Xanax for 30 years for accute severe anxiety disorder along with an anti-depressant.
The combo of Cymbalta & .5 mg of Valium 3x daily has been a complete life saver for me. I have felt better in the past 3 month than I have in 30 years!! As I'm sure you know it takes a multitude of trial and error to find that magic combo of meds that helps you. I suggest asking your doctor about Valium for anxiety in addition to your Cymbalta. I have no drowsiness, but am sleeping 8 hours straight at night without waking up once. I havnt been able to do this in 10 years +!! Best of luck to you!!
Just keep swimming...you will get the right combo for you.
