My normal dose is 120mg. That is down from 180mg. I called poison control and they were not concerned. Neither were the paramedics today after my extremely severe panic attack. I thought I was dying! Could these two be related? cymbalta also interacts with my maxalt, Zofran, celebrex, armoire thyroid, zanaflex, Percocet, and fiorcet. None of my doctors seem worried. I'm taking it for chronic pain and fibromyalgia. I am considering going down to 60mg as studies show no significant improvement when the dosage is increased above 60mg. Any insight or suggestions?
I took double the dose once and it did nothing! I also suffer from anxiety and it made me a bit anxious, but since nothing happened my anxiety soon calmed. I believe your panic attack and the double dose of Cymbalta are most definitely related! You freaked that something serious would happen when you took the double dose, then let your mind take over and allow you to think of the worst things possible that may happen because of it!
I just did this same thing except I took one dose with brunch and didn't remember and took it again around 8pm.
I called the pharmacy and he said that I would be fine just skip my does tomorrow and take it as usual they next day
Said I shouldn't have any side effects except maybe sleep a little better than usual.
I did the same thing. I was at the pharmacy getting my flew shot and the pharmacist gave me a script that they had. I thought it was a refill on my 30 mg script. I was taking 4-30's each day because my MS Doctor had just bumped me up to 120, for ms pain. Was titrating from 30, to 60, to 120. I ended up going in consecutive days, 60, than 180, than 240 yesterday. Feeling sleepy and shaky today. Also take nucynta for pain. Feel a little more at ease after reading the replies to your post.
