Cymbalta And Crazy Sleep

Kendra Says:


I wake up most nights around 2:00-3:00 and feel like I am in some crazy video game. I feel super dizzy, feel like the room is full of strobe lights, experience brain zaps and have crazy dreams. My neurologist said he has never heard of some of these symptoms and I am wondering if anyone has experienced this. I am on 90 mg. of cymbalta for my fibromyalgia.

Unfortunately, doctors don't usually know as much side effect information as a pharmacist, or researcher would. Diagnosing, and treating are their areas of expertise, but in most cases, they only know the basic side effects that most medications might cause.

As to the Cymbalta, poor quality sleep, psychomotor restlessness, dizziness, and sensory disturbances have all been noted as being side effects according to FDA reports.

My husband couldn't take this medication, it messed with him very badly, after just two doses.

Is it helping your fibro? Are you on any other medications?

It does help my fibro for sure. I use it for anxiety as well.. I just hate the way I feel at night. It seems to be worse the longer I’ve been on it.
