when do most take their pills, day, night, 2 pills at a time or 1 pill twice a day, morning and evening? i am also on the Butrans Pain patch for osteoporosis pain. my recent bone density test -4.6 also on Buspirone 2 tablets twice daily and various other drugs for COPD. I was prescribed Cymbalta for osteoporosis pain but have also experience a better attitude, i wake up with goals for the day, b/4 i woke up depressed with no "gumpsion" to do much of anything.
I would definately call your dr. for more clear instructions. But when I was first put on Cymbalta I started with taking 30 mg twice a day. I was told to take one in the morning & one at night. They usually start you on a low dosage to begin with twice a day for a month & if you do not have any side effects & it is helping you they will change it.
After the 1st month they changed mine to taking one 60mg only in the morning.
I have been on 60mg once a day for about 5 years & I have not had any side effects from this medication but I know others have. So be sure to go online & check out the list of side effects for Cymbalta so you can watch out for any of them.
I wish you the best of luck & I hope you find relief.
Has anyone out there take 60 mg of cymbalta twice a day? Do you take both pills at once? In the morning or at night? I have found if I take one at night I can't sleep. So, I started taking them both at the same time in the morning. This is only my third day so it's trial and error. Any deedback is appreciated. Thanks.
I suffer from medication resistant major depression. Cymbalta has been the only anti-depressant that has even given me mild assistance (in addition to other medications for treatment). I was previously on 60mg once daily. My Psychiatrist is trialing an increased dose to 60mg twice daily. I am taking one capsule in the a.m. and the second in the p.m. I have no problem with this dosing regimen. However, as a Cardiac Nurse, I would always recommend consulting with your Physician regarding dosing schedule.
