Cymbalta and crazy sleep

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 ...

amount to take

Am taking 60mg per day, but still feel depressed. How high can you go withthis drug? ## Hello, Dee! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem you're having. 60mgs is usually the maximum dosage for this medication, it's not been shown to have any greater benefit in higher amounts. How long have you been taking the current dosage? It can take about 4 to 6 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in the body, so you know how well it is working for you. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. ## How many zopiclone 7.5 do people take if they have a reasonable tolerance.

Cymbalta for RSD/CRPS

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 and full body tremors or jumps

I have been on different anti-depressants for years. About four years ago I was put on Cymbalta 30mg, raised up to 90mg, then lowered back down to 30mg. The problem I am having started about three years ago and I have yet to find one doctor that knows anything about it. I have full body tremors, not just my hands. It is like my entire body jerks and jumps and I expel a whoosh of air when it happens. Sometimes they get so bad that they seem close to a seizure. I have had a bunch of evaluations. My neurologist says it is mental, psychiatrist says physical. I have simply been in tears. Has anyone else had anything like this and what did the doctors tell you about it? ## Trembling or shaking of the hands and feet are listed as possible side effects by the FDA, as well as full body tremors, ...

Interaction of adderral cymbalta and gabapentin

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 and Blacking Out/injuries

Has anyone ever experienced blacking out or injuring yourself while on or during withdrawals on Cymbalta? Mostly head injuries, because of blacking out and hitting their head on things. If so, do you know what triggered it? ## A sudden withdrawal from Cymbalta can create a risk of seizures, which could be causing such problems. Other withdrawal effects can include nausea, rebound depression, and rebound anxiety. While taking it, it is very well known to cause dizziness, as a side effect, and rarely seizures, gait disturbances, and syncope (fainting). So yes, it is entirely possible to experience these types of problems while taking it. Has the person's doctor been informed?

Can cymbalta cause false positive tests for methamphetamine?

I'm in a hospital paralyzed from my T-6 down becuz of an abscess which was MRSA on that vertebrae in my spine! Well my Dr came in this morning and told me he's not going to give me anymore narcotic pain meds! He claims I'm testing positive for meth! My question is, cymbalta's the ONLY new drug I'm taking. Does Cymbalta cause false positives for methamphetamine? ## I'm also testing positive for methamphetamines and I take Cymbalta - I have never taken methamphetamines in my life. ## I took my first drug test today after being put on this damn antidepressant and the doctor called and told me I need blood work cause I tested positive for methamphetamines, and that's the only new drug I've been put on. I'm very upset. ## Can Azithromycin cause a false pos...

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...

Cymbalta Adrenal Insufficiency

I have been on Cymbalta for 7 yrs. For the last 4 yrs I've been on 120mg per day. I have dealt with many, many side effects, however it helped me so much I put up with them. But the last two years I started having severe heart palpitations and extreme bouts of fatigue. I had many cardiac test and was eventually diagnosed with a heart arythemia. And now last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency with my cortisol levels dangerously low. My FP doctor referred me to a Endocrinologist, but before I could get there I was hospitalized 4 days with pneumonia. Extreme Adrenal insufficiency causes fluid to build in your lungs. Coincidence? I don't know? Has anyone else on Cymbalta had symptoms of Adrenal fatigue? Has anyone else been on Cymbalta for 7-8 yrs? ## Actually, many me...

Best medicine for restless legs

I need meds for restless legs and fibromyalgia!!! I take 60mg of Cymbalta 1x a day and Lortab 7.50/300mg every 4hrs... I also take Baclofen 10mg for a neck injury when it gets bad but not every day. Nothing helps with the restless legs. Help!!! ## Cymbalta is horrible for Rls it's probably what's trigging it for u, probably should try a different antidepressant ## Cymbalta is probably making it worse. The opioid should help.... ## This may sound silly but I took Andrew Lessman Circulation & Vein Support for Healthy Legs. It helped within a week. It has 600 mg of Diosmin in it. You cam buy it at his website or at HSN. ## My Dr. put me on Carbidopa/Levadopa years ago. (Sinemet). Works wonders. My Dad when he was still alive suffered from RLS, which I wasn't aware of till h...
