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.
Hi Shirley iv taken duluxetine for2 years know.its a very good medication to take.🤗🤗
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
I have questions about the medication gabepentin. I’ve been prescribed this. Just wondering if this helps anyone.
I were giving quinine for my restless legs it works.
I've tried Eucalyptus lotion, which helps falling asleep, but not continuously through the night. So tired of being tired.
Use a pillow to raise your leg.
If you don't sleep on your back putative pillow between your knees . I hope you have relief 😌

Then if u drink........,.u give up ur right to bear arms. Sorry Alcohol Lobbyist.
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

Yes, works, but every hospital should have a therapy swim pool to help with exercises, healing, and pain management.
Drs lowering amt of pain meds due to opioid epidemic. People are resorting to street drugs because of it. Have others have their drs. lower their meds stating fed mandated?

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
