Cymbalta (cymgen), is the chemical duloxetine and is a very strong schedule 5 prescription medication used to treat severe depression and/or anxiety and related symptoms.

It acts as a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor in the brain, hence allowing the serotonin hormone levels to be more stable.
This will in turn affect transmission of nerve impulses across synapses and may consequently affect co-ordination and reaction times.

Affects will vary from patient to patient as everybody's bodies are unique.
