I was diagnosed by my doctors as having fibromyalgia. They wanted me to take Cymbalta. When weaning me off Lexapro from 20mg to 10 mg the symptoms went totally away. I never went on the Cymbalta
I also was diagnosed with fibro. Put on Trazadone. Thought it helped for awhile, but then it seemed not to. So I didn't take it as a med for Fibro.
What Trazadone did help with was sleep... it was great. But noticed the side effect was feeling like 2 Mac trucks had run over me. Took me awhile to put it together. Guess I didn't want to give up the sleep solution. Now that I am off of it, and have done some research, have found out just like you, the Fibro symptoms can be caused by different meds.
Glad you are feeling well and didn't have to go on Cymbalta.
