Generic Cymbalta - Duloxetine
Post a Reply
Continued from preceding post: After a couple of weeks I felt like someone else, not me. This is not acceptable. If the delivery mechanism of a drug makes it different from the brand, then how can it be deemed bioequivalent? Being unable to experience positive emotions and feeling that my head is in a vise? No thanks. Back on brand and yes, it's a fortune, but given the alternative... Generic Meds for mood disorders do not seem to be held to the same standard as drugs for physical disorders. Or am I being too "subjective"? ...

Generic Cymbalta (Duloxetine)
1 Reply RSS
Cymbalta's generic, duloxetine, was given to me by my pharmacy without notifying me of the change. I'd been taking Brand at night, 120 mg. for four plus years and the drug made a tremendous difference in quality of life. On the generic I had insomnia from the get go, felt depressed and exhausted during the day, and didn't figure it out for several days because the generic capsules are exactly the same colors as the Brand. (There ought to be a law...) Dr. suggested I then try taking it in the morning; then at dinnertime, but was still unable to sleep for more than three hours at a time, even after thirty hours of wakefulness. Feeling spaced out during the day made it Impossible to function normally, and eyes were still wide open at night. After a couple of weeks I felt like s... ...

IS THERE A DRUG THAT CAN DO WHAT DULOXETINE60MG WITHOUT CAUSEING YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT? ## Hello, Vickie! How are you? What are you taking it to treat? This information would better enable me to answer your question. For example, if you're taking it for anxiety and/or depression, then I'd suggest asking your doctor about Prozac/Fluoxetine. It is classified by the FDA as an SSRI antidepressant and is well known to not cause the weight gain than many others do. As a matter of fact, it has sometimes caused weight loss, along with nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. ...

I plan to never touch one again. Any thoughts or advice? And to all who suffer, may you win your battles in your time and find sweet rest. Thanks. ## Hello, Rick! How are you doing? Those can be normal side effects, when you first start this medication. Things usually improve, after about 4 to 6 weeks, once your body adjusts to the medication. Other side effects may include dry mouth and weight changes. What others have you tried? What condition have you been diagnosed with? ...

The dr prescribed me cymgen and I am very afraid of gaining weight as I already struggle with my weight. Is there anything I can do to ensure that I dont gain weight? ## Cymgen contains the active ingredient Duloxetine, which is an SNRI antidepressant and while this class of medications is known to cause some weight gain, it is usually not significant. That's why they are chosen, by many doctors, over the SSRI class, for patients with weight issues. As to making certain you don't gain any, there are a few things you can try that may help. One is to keep track of your eating habits, since this effects brain chemicals, it is highly possible that it could cause your appetite to become increased, which could result in your eating more food than you actually need. Thus, you should tr... ...

I was diagnosed with crohn’s about 6 months ago and the last month I’ve been having bad lower back pain. I recently went to a pain clinic and got prescribed meloxicam 7.5 mg 2x, Duloxetine dr 30mg, and Baclofen 10mg 3x. I’ve been having bad nausea, and still having back and stomach pain. I was wondering if anyone has been prescribed this for crohn’s pain, or can tell me what you’re prescribed for pain associated with crohns pain, Thanks! ## Hello, Sam! How are you?
