    Note that several of the “symptoms” in Lilly’s handout are not actually symptoms of depression. Vague aches and pains, dizziness, etc. — not symptoms of depression. Of course, Lilly markets Cymbalta in their Depression Hurts campaign as a drug that makes your physical pain vanish if you also have depression. The evidence for Cymalta treating pain in depression is incredibly weak, however. Just another trick from our pals at Lilly.

    The checklist was supposedly derived from the University of Michigan’s Depression Center – http://www.med.umich.edu/depression/
    However, I have a hunch that the research behind this was funded by a, *ahem*, pharmaceutical grant.
