have taken Cymbalta 30mg for 7 days and 60mg for 7days. When can I stop taking it?

Have just found out my doc put me on cymbalta and i'll be going back to my home country where this drug is not available. I will go see my doc later this week but was wondering if I could stop taking it until then? Don't wanna get too much in the system. ## There shouldn't be any problem stopping it that fast, you haven't been on it for that long. Do you know what's available to you? If not, feel free to post back and someone can check for you! :-) ## Start trying to get off it now! It’s the hardest drug I have ever had to quit. I have known lots of people that suggest counting the crystals in the capsules and each week reducing by 2 crystals and doing this for as long as it takes. Since you haven’t been on it for very long, it might not be so bad. I...

Cymbalta And Weight Gain

I gained 68 lbs while on Abilify. Now four years later my weight is still 30 lbs over my normal. I still have some depression and very severe anxiety so my doc wants me to try cymbalta 20mg once a day. I would rather be depressed than severely overweight. Anyone know if cymbalta tends to cause weight gain or loss? ## Actually, one of its most common side effects is decreased appetite, so it might actually cause weight loss. Learn more Duloxetine details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, I have been on cymbalta for about 4 years now, after a suicide attempt. I started off on one capsule a day which wasn't enough so it was increased to 2 a day. I fell in love with life again. I find it amazing and I can't do without them. HOWEVER! My weight has increased dramati...

cymbalta and tremors

Has anyone else experienced tremors while taking C? I look like I've got the DT's right after I get a dose. Also, sweats and not being able to sleep - hope they are temorary side effects. On 90mg for three weeks now. Thanks! ## Can 30 mg of Cymbalta make your fingers and hands shake? ## I took Lexapro for 5 years with good results, but I was switched to Cymbalta 6 weeks ago to hopefully reduce my pain from arthritis. I've had several side effects which are getting worse and I am now going to stop the Cymbalta. I've had restless leg syndrome, fatigue, nausea, weakness, sense of irregular pr fast heartbeat, but the worst are a couple of intense "hot" flashes which included all of the above. Terrible! Seriously, I was frightened at the severity, and I have never had...

Cymbalta 60 Side Effects

I have been taking Cymbalta for 6 yrs. along with Wellbutrin(150mg.) could it cause sores in my mouth? could it cause my hands to shake once in a while? ## Hi Mary, One of the side effects of Cymbalta (Duloxetine) is an "uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body". It can also cause blisters or peeling skin, rashes, hives, swelling in the face, and unfortunately, much more than this. The link below lists the vast majority of possible side effects, but I would highly recommend talking to your doctor about switching medications or opting for a natural alternative to this prescription if the side effects are too persistent or severe: I hope this info helps! ## I have been taking Cymbalta for many years,and I see that I have many of the symptoms. What I fear is that the effect th...

Breckenridge Cymbalta

Has anyone tried Breckenridge Cymbalta? CVS changed. I was taking Prasco pharmaceuticals and had no issues. Just concern ## Have you tried taking it, yet? If so, have you noticed any difference? Not all medications, or their generics, work the same for everyone that tries them, so the only way to really know how it will work for you is by trying it. Does it cause you to experience any of the typical side effects, which are listed as possibly including nausea, somnolence, or dizziness according to the Cymbalta details page? ## I don’t take that, but I had to stop using CVS for my meds because they were ordering the most ineffective generics I have come across. Then Rite Aid must have changed distributors because they did too. Wallgreens isn’t in my network so I am trying to s...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?

My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Wellbutrin XL Coupon Program Change. Anyone else?

I've been using the coupon program to get my brand Wellbutrin XL 300mg for $100/month for the past couple years. This past refill in January the pharmacy said the coupon program had changed and if your insurance doesnt pay anything at all toward the rx, which mine doesnt, then the coupon wont either, making it full price if I want it. Anyone else having this problem?

apotex vs pliva trazodone

My pharmacy just switched manufacturers of my prescription trazodone 50mg. It used to be made by apotex now it is pliva and I am finding that the new pills are having little to no effect and I am starting to suffer discontinuation syndrome. I talked to my pharmacist and doctor and neither one could tell me what was causing this. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who could shed some light on the subject. ## Yes, I can. Under Federal Law, by way of the Hatch Watchman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from their name brand counterparts by as much as plus or minus 20% in the active ingredient. Many people are not aware of this, including doctors, but the FDA considers this to be a very minor difference that does not affect the therapeutic dosing of medications. So,...

can lexapro cause a bad taste

I have been on Lexapro for two years now and I don't feel it has been doing anything positive for me. I've stayed on it because the doctors have insisted that I would be depressed without it. For the past year I have this horrible metallic taste in my mouth all the time which prevents me from enjoying any type of food or drink. I have been tested for all kinds of disorders relating to bad taste by several doctors and no one can find anything wrong. So I have concluded the bad taste must be caused by the Lexapro. Is there anyone else that has experienced a bad taste while on Lexapro? I have decided to stop taking the drug, I'm two weeks off it now and feel no different. Thanks. Greg ## Hello, Greg! How are you? Has the taste change improved, at all, yet? Most medications risk...

Treatment resistant depression

For 40+ years I have battled bipolar illness.. been through all meds, many ect, rTMS. and clearly dealing with trd... How can I find novel treatments.. spc.. sKetamine, or possibly GLYX13,, I am in Canada but will travel to get help.. Having a MI seems to in a less than important issue, the stigma and all.. but I don't care if it doesn't keep me from treatment.. ## Just get on the web and do searches for Ketamine and the other medication you wanted to try. There are clinics popping up all over because of the efficacy of Ketamine. Big pharma and Psychiatrists hate this because it takes you off their payroll money cash flow. Thankfully what is right is right and this works. Good luck. ## Where do you live? I was told by my psychiatrist that Dr. Roger McIntyre will be doing ketamin...

Mirtazapine Sleeping and side effects

Hi all. Great reading your posts. I am on Mirtazapine for the second time. Happy new year by The way. Firstly my psychiatrist put me on 30mg. It knocked me out every time. I had vivid abnormal dreams, lucid which I love. Nevertheless I had the munchies all the time coupled with lethargy, fuzziness and mild hallucinations. I kept going but was getting chubbier by the week. So i decided to ween myself of them feeling that my depression and residual psychosis from previous street drug abuse had resided or gone altogether. 3 weeks off them I was back in a dark gloomy and aggressive place my mood was irrational my thoughts racing always looking for someway to escape myself. 2 months later I went back on them and at first I felt like they were not working so the doc uped them from 15 to 30mg....

Bupropion 150 XL by Dr. Reddy's/ScieGen Pharmaceuticals

Do they work as well as PAR brand? Any other comments on this brand of Bupropion? ## Do not work as well. And couldn't return them. CVS still uses PAR and CVS policy is to inform before providing different brand. ## PAR Bupropion works better for me, (used 2 years). Get it in CVS by request only. I tried CIPLA for about 4 months, don’t like it at all. Back to PAR.

trazodone for insomnia

I have read the leaflet that came w/ my meds. Its listed as an antidepressant but was prescribed to me for insomnia. Two questions now. 1. Do I have to take it every night? 2. How worried should I be about the side effects? Frankly, I've put off taking it because I've never been diagnosed w/ depression, just insomnia & migraine. Any concise info you can provide would be great! Just speak to me like a person, not a doctor. Thanks! ## Trazadone. First off Trazadone is a cocaine withdrawal pill. And I guess it is prescribed for insomnia as well. My doctor gave it to me to help me sleep. It most definitely put me to sleep. But the bad, bad, bad thing about this medication is it stops your nose up to point where its impossible to breath. The first time I took it I knew exactly ho...

Help! Remeron and Cymbalta

Has anyone ever experienced anger/rage while taking Remeron? I recently tapered off Cymbalta slowly while introducing Remeron. I’m having extreme bouts of rage with no regard to anything, very far from the person I normally am. I don’t know if this is being caused by Cymbalta withdrawal or the Remeron. By the way - the week where I was on 15 Remeron and 15 cymbalta I was very energetic and positive, hyper productive. Obviously something is not right here. Could it be that this is just what I’m like without Cymbalta? Am I rapid cycling? I’ve never been officially diagnosed with bipolar 2 (mainly mdd and anxiety) but I’ve taken lamictal and cymbalta for 10 years after two suicide attempts. I’ve tried other drugs before that as well. Right now I am only ...

Cymbalta Experiences

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...
