I went cold turkey off of 7 10/325 mg Percocet after 7 years. I am still in pain so my Dr prescribed Gabapentin 300 mg tid. This did not touch the pain so he added Cymbalta. I have taken 1 30 mg Cymbalta for 2 days. The nurse told me to give the Cymbalta a few weeks to start working. I can't wait that long, my pain level is at an 8. I want to use my Fentanyl patches, so I need to know how long it takes Cymbalt to leave my system after taking 2 delayed release capsules.
hi i was on cymbalta for years 120mgs a day and weaned myself off of it but taking two pills isn't enough to even get into your system and start working i don't blame you for wanting to go back on your patches as the cymbalta and the gabapentin which i take 900mgs a day doesn't help either so i have to stick with my pain pills to, as if you decide to stay on this site you will find friendship ,support ,and answers. i just started myself and it is so nice to be able to talk to people even if it's not in person as family gets tired of hearing how you hurt. So give us a chance looking forward to hearing from you Leron
