ive been taking it for my depression and now im told its also for pain why both?
Hello Eve54. Just to add my thoughts, I know. It seems strange. My wifes friend uses it for exactly that reason. As an aid to help curb her pain.(fibromyalgia) It might be said the same rule applys to wellbutrin. Its often prescribed as an anti-smoking medication. There must be a chemical compound inside these two drugs that makes it possible to have a duel/double function. Kind of interesting. Because as a rule, cymbala and wellbutrin are psychiatric, manufactured for the mind. ha! well, have a good Eve54, best wishes.
I take cymbalta for both as well... the depression it helps greatly but doesn't help my nerve pain that much. It is used for fibroidmilygia as pledge said and multi skelten neaurapathy too. I have back damage and sciatica.(I was put on Wellbutrin to help stop smoking and it works by the way)
