Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have purchased Cymbolta a drug which belongs to Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors ((Dapoxetine)which is widely prescribed in Depressive Disorders and as pain killers in certain conditions.

You have purchased Cymbolta from Canadian Pharmacy who claim it to be generic. It is very difficult to be 100% sure about their claim. Please have a trial for a week or two and you will notice the efficacy as you have been taking it since 3 years.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
