Yey this is my first time ever needed to ask a question but I'm 25 years old have had a bad back since work incedent I'm goin threw pain management now doctor started me on 800ibprofen 300 3 times a day gabapentin works pretty good but i have a bad anxiety problem with some of the meds yesterday my pcp doctor added cymbalta only warning she said to me is that its expensife i need to no how do you think i woll do
Each person is different of course. Cymbalta is and can be great for lots of things. Just stay very proactive about your back pain. PLEASE!!! It took me 1 year and 6 neuro surgeons to finally find one that would operate. If pain gets worse then say something and stress it to them. Do you have nerve pain?
They wanted to have me try it as well but ins said no. I was on dilaudid for pain for 9 months along with Xanax and methocarbomal. Ask any question you need
Hi BGB. I want to be sure I understand completely. Are you taking gabapentin, ibuprophen and adding Cymbalta? Many of the folks on this site have great success with these meds. Ask your doctor for samples of the Cymbalta to try before you invest in the drug company to buy it. hehe! My only concern is the daily, long term use of ibuprofen. It can cause so many digestive problems, including ulcers and an increased risk of bleeding. Just be proactive in your health care and you and your doctor will find the best cocktail of meds to help your pain. Sometimes it is trial and error. Best wishes!
