Hi, CC! I don't take Cymbalta, but I am on other psych meds and I have a big problem with my partner. He doesn't really believe in psychiatry or psych meds; with him it's the old *if you really wanted to you could pull yourself together*. He hates that I take meds and he's absolutely sure that my meds are CAUSING my problems. He researched the meds I'm on and every time I sneeze he's sure that it's a dreaded side effect. LOL!
Is that the sort of thing you're dealing with? Please drop a line back ~ there are a lot of folks here and I can sure bet they've had problems too.
Best wishes, WCV
If your husband has done some research on Cymbalta then I can understand why he would not want you to take it.
I was on it and didn't do well on it at all. I had to stop taking it and the withdrawal was a nightmare.
My hubbie wants me to never take it or any other SSNRI meds again.
Does your husband say why he does not want you to take it?
What is the reason for taking it? Depression? Pain?
My hubbie doesn't understand what is going on with me either but then I don't really understand either. That is why I am seeing a Psychiatrist and a therapist.
Hi I don't have a spouse but a son who just doesn't get it. Fortunately I talked him into seeing my counselor and I think he might understand it better. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all just talk ourselves out of anxiety and depression. Don't they think we would if we could? Take a walk, it helps.
Take him with you. Judy
