- cymbalta, lyrica, insomnia, xerostomia, back pain, fibromyalgia, side effect, sleep, fatigue, savella, mouth
Cymbalta caused me to have extreme fatigue and insomnia but i lost two stone and had dry mouth and yawning which isnt terrible side effects
Lyrica helps me sleep has improved my fatigue but has increased my pain, caused nausea, upset stomach, major headaches, ataxia and a wide range of other side effects.
I want to try Savella
Added 6 Jan 2016:
I started on 60mg of cymbalta at night then changed to morning, eventually increased to 120mg and then dropped back down to 60mg before starting Lyrica.
I take 75mg twice a day of Lyrica
I am presently on 225 mg. Daily of lyrica for severe nerve pain ( sciatica damage) , and just increased to 60 mg cymbalta daily for depression, anxiety, an back pain. Lyrica has been a lifesaver for me. I would probably be in a wheelchair without it. I did gain about 20 lbs, but it was more than worth it. I can't really evaluate the cymbalta that well yet, but have seen no adverse effects to date. I am 59 year old female. I had spinal fusion a year ago, and it has been a long road! Good luck to you.
I tried Lyrica and Cymbalta and neither worked. Getting off Lyrica was a struggle. My rheumy said savella probably wouldn't work either and it's very expensive. I wish there was something that helped the pain besides tylenol.
I tried Cymbalta, it made me gain weight
I have been on Cymbalta for over 5 years and Lyrica for at least 3 years. The trimbles has nearly stopped and the Cymbalta was used for depression but my doctor said it also helped with the shaking.
I cannot comment on Sevilla however the combination of 300 milligrams per day of Lyrica and 60 milligrams per day Cymbalta is working well for me with no adverse side effects. When I was on 150 milligrams per day of Lyrica I did not notice any worthwhile pain relief. I take these medications for fibromyalgia, avascular necrosis and degenerative joint disease.
