Cymbalta Overview

Duloxetine, sold under the brand name Cymbalta among others,[1] is a medication mostly used for major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.[2] It is a thiophene derivative and a selective neurotransmitter reuptake inhibitor for serotonin, norepinephrine, and to a lesser degree dopamine.

Cymbalta And Weight Gain
25 Replies RSS Share
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 / vyvanse / xanax = increased anxiety??
23 Replies RSS Share
I am 34 years old and have been taking anti-depressants for about 3 years. I started on Lexapro, which quit working after a year and a half. While I was taking Lexapro I was experiencing horrible exhaustion (I have a disabled child and work full-time...VERY stressful), so my doctor put me on Vyvanse. She also gave me an Rx for Xanax .25mg to take as needed, which I RARELY took (usually only at night to relax). Last spring my stress level went through the roof and my doctor switched me from the Lexapro (which wasn't working anymore) to Pristiq 50mg, which was AWFUL (Horrible, vivid nightmares). I took that for one month before switching to Cymbalta 30mg. I have never liked taking the Vyvanse because it's an amphetamine. During the summer I began experiencing horrible anxiety and ...

Cymbalta for RSD/CRPS
38 Replies RSS Share
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 ...

cymbalta Withdrawals
3 Replies RSS Share
Hi all, first time here. I have severe fibromyalgia, bipolar and ADHD. I have been in a lot of pain from the fibro and neck problems despite being given high doses of oxycodone four times a day. I have been. really depressed, unmotivated, indecisive, anxious and somewhat isolated. I finally couldn't take it anymore and went to my psych provider as a walk in. After I told him what had been going on, he decided I should try Cymbalta. From the very first capsule I took, my fibro pain WENT AWAY completely. But here is the problem. I started reading about the drug's lovely side effects and the horrible withdrawal that comes when one gets off of it and I don't know what to do. I am already sweating, leg twitches, and feeling anxious. i don't think I want to take this drug beca...

Need Help Finding a Dr in MD that will cont to Rx my Opioids
1 Reply RSS Share
I need help finding a new PM doctor in Maryland that will prescribe ongoing opiates. I have fibromyalgia and 2 herniated discs with left & right leg radiculopathy. I am currently taking Cymbalta 60mg, Percocet 10/325 (which barely helps and was just reduced to bid) and Gabapentin 300mg bid (which I'm coming off of bcuz of severe anxiety and mood swings). I was changed from Lyrica bcuz although it was helping with the pain it made me feel awful. My PM doctor had given me 3 steroid injections with each helping less than the first and now she trying to wean me off the Percocet bcuz she states I have been taking it for a year and the treatment plan has not helped. I am looking for a Dr in MD that will continue to prescribe my opioids and hopefully include a long-acting opioid into m...

Switching from Cymbalta to Limbrel for Osteoarthritis
1 Reply RSS Share
I am currently taking Cymbalta for my osteoarthritis, but really can't tell if it helps any. I realize I will have to be taken off the Cymbalta slowly by my doctor. However, I wonder if I might be able to start Limbrel while being "weaned off" of the Cymbalta? Would that be safe? ## I didn't find any problems, or interactions listed, but the ultimate decision is up to you and your physician. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Limbrel as possibly including upset stomach, gas, and diarrhea. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

Cymbalta stopped working. Now what?
2 Replies RSS Share
I took Cymbalta for about 10 years, and it seemed to help with a lot of my depression symptoms. I had to increase the dose over time, and maxed out at 120mg. But the last year or two I was taking it, it just didn't seem to do much anymore, and my depression had gotten worse as well. Has anybody been in the same boat? If so, would love to know if you've found something else that works well for you. ## It is normal for a medication to stop working as well for you, over time. Your body basically builds up a tolerance to them, which results in your needing a higher dosage, or medication change, according to FDA warnings. Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications? ## Do not quit this drug suddenly. You must taper off or you will have some had withdrawals

Getting off of Cymbalta
1 Reply RSS Share
I need to get off of cymbalta because I no longer have an ability to feel life. I no longer feel like I have what it takes to grow as a person and continue building myself. I feel stumped and I feel like my body shakes and aches because I am so frail. My life on Cymbalta is pure laziness and sleepiness. The problem is over-sleeping and not feeling active enough or energized enough to get out of bed. The active and energized person who had an ability to feel things and follow his drive has been completely tarnished by an over-use of this horrible daily drug. My brain has been zapped and "blocked" I guess you could say because this is a dopamine uptake inhibitor. I feel like there is a cloud in my head, almost like a little visor, or massive shield of blankness and loss of ability...

I have been prescribed this drug for leg pain, has anyone had this prescribed for related pain. What did it do. ## Yes, I take Cymbalta, and have for approx 6 month. I was diagnosed with human parvovirus, and the fibromyaglia is here to stay. It has does wonders for me. Lifted my spirit as well as has addressed my pain! I'm not as stiff, and my pain has greatly reduced. Its an interesting high. I'm an athlete, and I can really tell the difference when I don't take it. thanks Lee ## I HAVE BEEN TAKING WELLBUTRIN FOR OVER A YEAR AND THIS HAS SEEMED TO WORK. MY DOCTOR IS NOW SWITCHING MY MEDS TO CYMBALTA AND SAYS I CANNOT TAKE THE TWO TOGETHER.
