Ive been on duloxetine/cymbalta for about 4 months and i was about 150 and i am now 128 and still losing. I am not sure if any one else has had this but its kinda strange. I have had fibromyalgia for about 4 years maybe longer not sure. Im also on gabapentin.
Do they now have a generic, I don't have insurance and dont have alot of money'?
I've been on Cymbalta for close to 2 years for musculoskeletal pain from RA and SLE. I have extreme bouts of uncontrollable sweating even after all this time. I thought it was going to be a temporary side effect that I would eventually get over. Now, here I am... 23 months later and still... read more
Hi All, I've had an increase in anxiety lately, (have a lot on my plate) and was referred to a therapist (talk therapy) and a psychiatrist (meds). He prescribed Duloxetine (generic Cymbalta). I just started taking it at home last week on my 3 days off. The first week is 20 mg./day with a 10... read more
I've recently been prescribed 20mg Prozac instead of my daily 30mg Cymbalta, to hopefully help with the relentless fatigue. I understand Cymbalta is SNRI, and Prozac SSRI. Can I clean switch to Prozac? Do I start Prozac whilst tapering off Cymbalta? Or do I taper off Cymbalta entirely... read more
My doctor knows nothing about anti-depressants, the mental health service have refused help, and I cannot afford private help. I am trying to work this out myself, which is far from ideal, but I don't have a choice. I was on citalopram for 13 years (10 of which unnecessary as I had... read more
Cymbalta makes me so exhausted. Would Effexor do the same? Has anyone switched from Cymbalta to Effexor with any success?
Cymbalta has been the only antidepressant that has worked for me so far, but it makes me so exhausted. I could fall asleep on the floor any moment. Why is Cymbalta causing such extreme fatigue?
I have had diarrhea with the generic and Cymbalta. I'm on 20mg a day and its been 3 weeks, and I go 3 times a day. I talked to the Dr. and she said take imodium, it helps somewhat, I can't keep taking it. I have lost 3 lbs and I am done with dealing with this. Help! Bonnie
I was on Celexa for several years for anxiety and depression. I was then prescribed Lexapro for another 3 years. I tried to stop taking it but each time the anxiety, in particular would return and with full force. In a difficult high anxiety situation I would get a feeling that my blood pressure... read more
Last week I was diagnosized fibromyalgia after six year of medical checks and screenings. The doc prescribed me 60mg Cymbalta, 10mg Flexiban, along with physio. How long does it take to see the effects of Cymbalta? I have been on it for 10 days now, but I see little improvement. The doc told me it... read more
Constipation is also my problem. My doctor lowered the dose from 50mg to 20mg... in hopes that I would not be constipated. I will try to take 20mg every other day and see if it makes a difference. Hopefully, it won't cause me withdrawal symptoms! My heart rate is also increased w/this drug, I... read more
I have been on various SSRI/ SSNRIs for about 15 years. I took Effexor (it's generic equivalent) for a few years. Then my doctor switched me to Cymbalta (it's generic - duloxetine), which I have taken for a few years. I started all of this due to general anxiety. Many things have changed... read more
