Hi i am new to all of this but i was wondering if anyone has has switched from paxil to cymbalta. I have an oppiate addiction that i have overcome with the help of suboxen, but have a herniated disk in my back and heard cybalta may help eleviate pain. Does anyone know if this is true and due you just stop the paxil c/t or due you have to wean yourself off of it? Does cybalta make you tired? And is it good for anxiety? Sorry about all the questions but believe it or not my doctor didn't even know. Makes me wonder!!!
