I have chronic back and neck pain, Fibromyalgia, and Osteoarthritus, and I have heard, read, and talked to people that say Cymbalta is the way to go for the pain and Fibromyalgia. I was wondering if anyone knew if I could just switch to Cymbalta, or if I had to wean off the Pristiq (I take 100mg)? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks relunsford2007
I wouldn't recommend just stopping the Pristiq and starting the Cymbalta. The withdrawals will still set in even with the Cymbalta. You can do a fast taper over the next two weeks and then start the Cymbalta. As they both affect the same neurotransmitters, should be a smooth change.
