I have chronic fatigue and now, apparently fibromyalgia. My doctor has asked me to take Lyrica and Cymbalta. The Lyrica is no problem, but the Cymbalta (30 mg) I took one time while I was off work to see if it caused side effects, and I was dizzy and it made me very tired. The doctor told me to take it before bed, but when I woke up, I was still very tired and "zoned out". It took about 5 hours for this effect to go away.

I have to work, the most I can get is 4 days off. My doctor suggested starting it on my days off. What I want to know is if this fatigue and zombie feeling goes away. And if it did, how long did it take to go away? Thanks, I really need to know whether to just give this drug a pass or slog through a month of working through this
