I've been taking 60mg of Cymbalta for about a month and still feel the same. Is there anyone who could tell me more about this anti-depressant? ## Hi, Several people tell me the older Anti-depressants work best for them. Tofranil (or something like that) and others. Depending on your condition and what you can take for it you may want to try one thats been around for decades.... Good Luck... ## I have been taking cymbalta for about 3 months now. Before cymbalta I took lexapro. Neither one really cured every sypmptom of my depression. Sometimes counsilling is needed to. Talk to your doc and see if maybe there is another alternative.

Does anyone know if cymbalta raises your pulse rate . Mine is running 90- 110 since I started taking it. ## Cymbalta - I am on the lowest dosage but my B.P. has really climbed. Other than that, it seems to do wonders. Is there a remedy other than go off? ## There aren't any warnings listed for that, but you should speak to your doctor about your concerns. ## I started taking Cymbalta because of a sever neck ache and head ache, My bp is always around in the 60 range, then after taking the medicine it shot up to 90. Which my heart felt like it eas going to jump out of my chest. ## Wow! My pulse also increased to 90-100 since being on Cymbalta. I went off for awhile and it went back down. Now that I'm back on it I am staying above 90. My doctor doesn't believe there is a connec... ...

My dr. Put me on cymbalta for severe stress and anxiety. I took 1 pill last night and was fine till this morning. I woke up all shaky and a little nausea. Im fine mostly when im laying down but when i sit up i get hot, nauseated, shaky, and increased heartbeat. Anyone else experienced this? Should i stop taking it or wait and see? ## Those can be serious reactions to a medication, the one that is most concerning is the increased hear rate, which can cause serious risks to your health. Since you have just started it, I would suggest not taking anymore of them, until you talk to your doctor. Have you contacted them, yet? ## I take 90mg of cymbalta and lorazepam and i be feeling trouble like nausea and sometime actually thow up lose of wanting to eat food or it dosn't taste good at ll.... ...

I've been taking Cymbalta for 9 months. I'm experienciencing muscle pain in my arms a lot of sweating. Is this normal? Please advise. Thank You. ## Sweating can be a side effect of .Cymbalta. Try going down from 60 mg to 30 . Then, after about a month, if the sweating is worse than the benefits, taper off cymbalta, and try something else. ## I have had the sweating problem, but it's been when I missed or took it late. I wake up with my legs sweating. Yuck! ## No one but you and your doctor can say whether or not you should change your dosage, or try a different medication. The FDA does list both the sweating, and muscle pain as being possible side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, dry mouth, and mood changes. However, as females, there are othe... ...

The only antidepressant I ever took for a short time was Zoloth to get me thru PMS. Age 56. I started taking Cymbalta 2 weeks ago and I feel wonderful. I was moody(never knew when it would happen). Sluggish, gain weight. For the short time, I have been moody one time and loose weight. Plus I'm changed my diet to eat healthier and exercising. It boost the serotonin in system. ## All SSRI's are harmful, some fatal while taking/withdrawling. Cymbalta is a dual SSRI (SSNRI). Take 5htp OTC at a health food outlet, no side effects. I've been at 60mg/day since 11/04, and I am pissed. I have diabetic neuropathy, no mental/emotional issues. Save yourself, pharma won't. In short, all SSRI's are FDA approved chemical lobotomies, and your Dr. makes money prescribing them. Good L... ...

I just went from 60 mg to 80mg or cymbalta. I have fibromyalgia,neuropothy and depression and anziety. Has anyone taken 90 mg and did it help you? ## It didn't help me when I took it, but I am probably not the best judge. I tried it years ago and have since found out I was misdiagnosed and being treated for the wrong thing. It was not going to do anything to help the pain I was having. A higher dose may cause a resurgence of the side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight gain. Read more: Has it been working for you? ## Hello, I'm looking for help for my mother.

What happens if I drink wine with Cymbalta? I like my wine. ## Well it really depends on your dosage, your alcohol tolerance, your metabolism and etc. Cymbalta can cause drowsiness in some people and alcohol can intensify that effect. In some meds, alcohol can also affect the absorption rate in your body, making you get too much or too little of the necessary drug. However, as long as you aren't taking huge doses of the drug and getting drunk every day, you will probably not have any severe problems. If you are concerned, speak with your doctor or pharmacist first and they can provide you with more information. ...

Cymbalta 40mg

I have been taking cymbalta now for 6 weeks my dr upped me from 30mg to 4g 3 weeks ago. I feel very down in the morning still & jittery symptoms seem to get better as the day goes on, however I do take .125mg oh klonapin if needed for anxiety. My question is do you think upping to 60mg will help?? I really don't want to come off them as tried so many!!!! Please any help or advice very much appreciated. ## Hello, Phoebe! How are you? It would be best to give the current dose time to reach its full level of efficacy in your body, to see how much it will help you, before making a decision to raise it, again, or not. It usually takes about 4 to 5 weeks. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. How long h... ...

Cymbalta 60 mg

Hi. I have been on 60 mg Cymbalta for anxiety before with great success (which is why I stopped because I felt so good). Anyway a year later I am having another episode with anxiety and was put back on Cymbalta 30 mg. I was only on that for 8 days and then switched to the 60 mg. I am finding some increased anxiety (but within my body not mind) on the increase and it has been 9 days. My Dr. thinks I should go back down to 30 for three weeks but I almost feel like now that I have been on the 60 for 8 days the symptoms will subside any day and I don't want to start over at 30? Has any one had a similar experience. Replies would be greatly appreciated . Please only positive feedback, no horror stories, I don't think I could handle that right now. THank you! ## Though I haven't b... ...

I forgot to take my tablet last night at 6pm and I took one at 10am this morning when I remembered to take it. What time should I take it tonight? Also I am feeling very nauseous - is there something I should do in order to feel better? I have had some neurofen but the headache is not going away at all. Also I am dizzy. ## Hope you are better by now. Resume normal dosage when you miss one. Try saltines for your stomach. I use ibuprofen for headaches and body aches. Ask your doc about dizziness. I take Cymbalta before bed. ## I was told to take it at 6 pm when I get home from work. I only get dizzy when I forget to take it and feel like crap the next day and have to take myself to bed and don't like driving when I feel like this. What are saltines? ## Saltines are crackers like Premi... ...

Cymbalta HELP

I have been on a variety of antidepressants over the last 7 years, most recently Cymbalta for the last 18-24 months. From Nov 2013 - Nov 2014 I had been taking 90 MG daily. While my dose increase from 60-90 MG helped at first, after a very short time my skin/face became horrible and no matter what I have done for the last year nothing has helped. But I stuck with it because I was mentally/emotionally feeling better. Then last summer/fall it had gotten to the point where I no longer felt the meds were helping me at all - in fact, I physically was feeling horrible majority of the time and I no longer felt any benefit of taking it (no energy, no motivation, nauseous, sick at times, headaches, horrible sweating and I was ALWAYS hot, memory loss and confusion) - so with my drs help I began t... ...

Cymbalta meds.

I've been on Cymbalta for 5 years now. I went from 30mg to 90 mg. Back down to 60mg. The reason is I felt it no longer helped & the side effects out weighed the good, but then again its been awhile. Cymbalta is the only medication that has totally worked for my panic attacks & social phobias. But for about the last 2-3 years now I've gained at least 30lbs, my ears ring so loud, pain in my joints & insomnia. Oh and yes my scalp itches like crazy & horrible dreams. Tomorrow im going to 30 mg, until i have this out of my body, and find another answer. I'm scared but there needs to be another answer. ## Hello, Martha! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems you've had. What else have you tried? Was Prozac (Fluoxetine) one of them? It's an SSRI ... ...
