What causes tiredness while on generic Cymbalta?

How long will it take for generic cymbalta to be in full effect. I have been taking 60 mg delayed release capsules for eight days. I feel so tired i wonder if this tiredness will go away. I am adult ADHD and also take 10 mg of adderall three times a day . Thanks for any insight you could give me. Regina

Cymbalta needs about two weeks to give its effects on improving energy. It may take up to eight weeks to improve mood. So you should wait one week more to feel more energised.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
