I was taking Cymbalta for neuropathy along with other anti depressants a short while back. I had to stop the Cymbalta because I could no longer afford it. Since that time I am on Citalopram 30 mg for depression/anxiety with clonzaepam if needed from time to time. I have new insurance and with the new generic Cymbalta I can now afford to take it again for neuropathy pain & it worked really well for me. Can these be taken together. I got the new RX today but don't want to start taking till know more.
Talk to your doctor before using citalopram together with Duloxetine. Combining these medications can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms while taking the medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
