I Would Like Information On Taking Cymbalta-120 Mg With Medical Marijuana Capsules. Do They Affect Each Other
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭
A MyChronicPainTeam Member

I take 90mg daily Cymbalta with CBD edibles and one has no affect on the other, for me. I would discuss with Dr. CBD gives you no high.

I Would Like To Know If Anyone Has Tried Agmatine For Fibromyalgia And Chronic Pain..
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Disclaimer.. I am not a doctor just my own guinea pig and can't recommend anything. Always check with your doctor 1st before taking a new supplement. I don't know if this interacts with ssris or antidepressant as this supplement helps with depression.

I am starting it tomorrow as I'm always using myself as a guinea pig lol. I've tried so many alternative treatments and supplements out of pocket. I saw many good reviews and articles about it. Surprisingly I never heard of it before until a week… read more

Is Anyone On Or Has Been On Zoloft?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

What was your experiences with this medication as this is what I’ll be put on after slowly weaning off of Cymbalta

Zoloft or Wellbutrin are common exchanges for [[treatment:Cymbalta.:5744c4716b4dcc379e000aaa]].. It's so individual the way we each react. You do have to let the Medication build to a level over a few… read more

Does Anyone Have Experience Of Taking Duloxetine?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, amongst other things, but I'm in the process of changing over from an antidepressant that I've been taking for 27 years, for anxiety and depression. Im changing from Clomipramine to Duloxetine because Duloxetine, as well as being an antidepressant, apparently helps with chronic pain. I wondered if anyone on here has experience of either, changing over, and/or taking Duloxetine? I'd appreciate any information you can give me. Thank you.

For Those Experienced With Cymbalta, What Are Your Thoughts About It?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Thanks to the Facebook page "Cymbalta Hurts Worse", more people are able to educate themselves about this drug. Personally, I think it should only be used as a last resort after diet, exercise, safer meds, and treatments have failed. I take that back - I believe it should be thrown out due to the harm it has brought to the lives of so many people. If you are one of the few lucky ones that have had luck with it - that is wonderful! I still like to caution as many people as possible before they… read more

Cymbalta
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone had difficulty in weaning off Cymbalta? My daughter went through hell for over a month with profound depression and fatigue, major mood swings, and extreme anxiety. It is our experience that the MINIMAL pain relief that is supposed to be associated with this antidepressant is not worth the side effects. One CRPS expert doctor (P. Choopra) says getting off Cymbalta is “brutal” and he finds it easier to get his patients off opiates than Cymbalta. I would use this drug only with extreme… read more

It is my understanding that when you are stopping cymbalta your doctor is supposed to gradually back you off of the cymbalta so you can avoid the withdrawal symptoms.

For Those With Fibromyalgia Or A Disease With Similar Treatment, What Are You Personally Using To Treat Your Illness?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I believe this is a question I'm always wanting to ask, since I just began treatment for fibro over a year ago, and I'm still in the process of switching and juggling medications. I'd love to know what's working for people and what isn't, and offer answers to any questions about my personal experience and what has helped my pain and depression. Answers can be anything that has helped you (yoga, sports, routines, having pets, etc.), not limited to medications.

I started out with all the meds it seems are the norm for fibromyalgia. Gabapentin, cymbalta, Soma, Vicodin etc. I am off all of these and only take my CBD oil and have pushed my pain level down. I… read more
