Hey Mik from Chi town. How is Florida or did you go? I take Lyrica & yes it's expensive. It really helps my pain. You can call the Patient assistants number to get it for free. It's 1-800-646-2455. Hope they can help you. Your friend just West a bit... Mary

Lyrica should be available after 2013, that is when the patent expires.
Eli Lilly has the exclusive rights to market Cymbalta until June 2013.
The first patent for Savella currently expires in November 2021
Rightly mentioned, thanks!

We have Cymgen in South Africa. I tried it for 6 weeks but it made me quite anxious. Cymbalta never did that to me. I used it for depression - Cymbalta - but unfortunately it stopped working after 3 years. Now searching for the right fit. All The best Kathy
