I have tried Cymbalta but couldnt take it due to side effects of extreme edema in my hands, feet and face. I have tried Lyrica and gabapentin too but cant take either of those due to unpleasant side effects.I am wanting to find out if most of you who take an antidepressant/anticonvulsant think it has helped your pain levels and what meds are best to help reduce pain besides opioids and muscle relaxants.
