I have only taken 2 doses so far. The next day I had a mini nervous breakdown, and had thoughts of hurting myself. I am taking these to sleep, not depression. I have had a bad reaction to Cybalta before about 10yrs ago. Is it possible for it to make me have those thoughts that fast?
Is it possible to have suicidal thoughts after only taking 2 doses?

I'm sorry to confuse. The medicine I took was Trazadone not Cymbalta. I took Cymbalta years ago and had a bad reaction. Was just wondering if Trazadone could do the same and how quickly. Haven't had suicidal thoughts or depression in 10 years.
Hi, i think it is unlikely. I can't 100% say that these symptoms are not from the Cymbalta, i really think you will need to speak with your doctor about this... these could be psychological side effects, or it could be that this breakdown you reference was a coincidence, and would have occurred regardless?
Eedmiston0219: First, IF a Psychiatrist prescribed these meds for you, by all means call him and ask him why he prescribed, for you, drugs that would cause side effects that would enable you to fall prey to seizures; confusion; hallucinations; blurred vision; nausea; vomiting and diarrhea... to mention a few. This is called Seretonin Syndrome.
Second, Stop taking the Trazadone until you can speak to a Psychiatrist. IF he is a General Practioner and NOT a Psychiatrist, don't take the Trazadone. Psychiatrists are more knowledgeable concerning those medicines and the interactions. Trazadone is typically used for insomnia; panic attacks and/or depression.
As far as suicidal thoughts, you didn't take enough Cymbalta to bring you down that low. Also, when you feel suicidal, know you can either call your local hospital ER or the Sheriff's Office for assistance.
PLEASE call your Physician and PLEASE do not take the Trazadone.
