Has anyone been on this drug for nerve pain? My doctor has just prescribedit for me based on the severe nerve pain (due to a failed surgery) I have but also to help with some depression issues.

I asked my doc the same question. He told me chronic pain is depressing, at least that's part of the situation. Its a SNRI, and Cymbalta is an SNRI. The difference being.g Effexor has a generic.
I wonder why he didn't add Neurontin? It is specifically used for nerve pain.
If you are not in pain management, ask for a referral. They are most qualified to help with your pain issues.
