... cymbalta when lost insurance due to cost). I recently refilled prescription and have been experiencing extreme tiredness, weakness and sleepiness for the past week. This has never happened before. I noticed that the manufacturer is one that have never had before with this (Heritgage) medicine before. Is there some difference in what is in this company's version than others that could be causing this reaction?
I think it could well be a difference. I found when I went from named Effexor to the generic, there was a marked difference. Doctors and pharmacists (in my experience) say they are the same, but our bodies know different.
I had quite a time convincing a doctor my body found the drugs different. You may well have to do the same, and ask to go back on the original make. The doctor, at the time, needed convincing, but I insisted. I do hope you sort this out.
Keep us updated.
