I have Sciatica, Spondeliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease and Fibromyalgia in both my hips & legs, I have had 3 sets of nerve blocker injections that did not help. I had a herniated disc, in my lower back, (scar tissue has entrapped nerve in it), intractable back pain, I have been falling a lot at home or if I am out somewhere. I get very confused and short term memory is really getting bad which is a symptom of Fibromyalgia, I don't want to go anywhere, I rarely see my friends. I feel like my feet and legs are running and my body is not catching up. I have also last year had left shoulder surgery for small tear in rotator cuff, bone spurs leaning on rotator cuff, osteoarthritis and fluid around the arthritis, 1 month after this surgery: I have what feels like electricity shocks ...

I am in the later stages of RSD and have tried ALOT of Rx that haven't helped. Has anyone else taken cymbalta for RSD & did it help? I am taking Cymbalta now and can't tell that it is helping at all. I take 30mg now and in 7 days start taking 60mg. Is there any Rx that you have/are taking either than Cymbalta that is helping w/RSD/CRPS pain? I have already tried trileptal, neurotin, gabitril and topomax which haven't helped the neuro pain. Open for any suggestions. Thanks. ## Hey there, I am in the earlier stages of RSD (but it still hurts like nothing I have experienced in my life before). The doctor prescribed me Lyrica and it has done wonders for me. Hoe that helps! ## Cymbalta works in a very similar way to Lyrica, so it has helped some people who are suffering from ...

Scary Drug Interaction Concern - I need answers!
Post a Reply
I am on cymbalta 60mg at night and 30mg in the morning along with 200mg of gabapentin 3x a day for fybromayalgia and mild depression. I was given adderall 30mgs and I took a few of them. I felt focused but had started to sweat excessively for a couple of hours and my pupils are dilated. I looked up the symptoms and it linked me to serotonin syndrome. Being freaked out I didn't take my gabapentin or cymbalta yet today. My question is...if I took 60mg of adderall this morning, should I take the other two scripts (cymbalta and gabapentin) today or skip them and wait 24 hrs for the adderall to leave my system? Do I need medical attention or am I being paranoid? My muscles are cramping up in my back and hands so I'm not sure if this is caused from skipping my meds for fibromyalgia or...

Cymbalta - what a pain!
1 Reply RSS
Just started this medication, one 30mg capsule and I had the most excruciating burning stomach pain. Within hours I had hot and cold sweats and for 5 days unable to eat or sleep and feeling so very ill. My GP gave me Peptac Liquid which barely helped. Never again! ## I was on cymbalta60 for neuropathy from my cancer treatment. I truly felt like running infront of a bus. I stuck with it for a little bit but to no avail. Coming off of it was just as bad if not worse. Be very very careful. It is for but a few people.

I am looking for someone who has been on this medication for a while. I would like to know how fast it works and if there were any side effects with nausea at first? ## I had nausea in the begining but it ceased after a while. Had some problems with constipation too. I have always been baffled why someone with anxiety problems such as myself is put on an antidepresent. I felt really tired all the time. There were a few times when I would fall asleep at my desk at work or almost fall asleep driving in the car coming home from work. Sometimes I felt like I had no desires to do things just from being so tired. I have recently gone off of it and I have had some strange things happening. I have been getting some weird shocking feeling in my head and body. it's very strange. ## prescribed...

Cymbalta pros and cons
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Cymbalta for 3 months. I was prescribed it for nerve pain. I take it 2x daily but after reading about the withdrawal symptoms i eased into it. I still only take it once daily. I noticed a raise in my blood pressure at the start and odd headaches. I always take it with milk just to help with stomach issues. As far as how fast it works, I think all medicines react different to each individual. This medicine has helped tremendously with nerve pain. Good luck. ## Yes, we are all different, so while the FDA and NIH can list details regarding certain common side effects, there is no way to know how any medication will affect any given person. The typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, weight changes, and mood swings. Are yo...

Take Cymbalta and I can't loose weight
1 Reply RSS
I've been on Cymbalta for 3 years for depression and anxiety. I am about 30-40 lbs overweight but I can't seem to loose weight no mater what I do. Has anyone else ran into this problem or no what to do to loose the weight. I take 120 mg per day ## Yes, weight gain, or the inability to lose weight can be a normal side effect of most medications in this class according to NIH reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and mood swings. Do you also make sure to get plenty of exercise and to eat as healthy as possible? Are you on any other medications?
