Linda - January 8

Hello, my doctor prescribed Cymbalta for me. Can you tell me how this can help me? I've tried a few different antidep. Currently i take Trazadone for sleep. I was also prescribed lexapro. But these really haven't helped a lot. Im still tired all the time and in pain.

Thanks so much.

My doctor put me on Cymbalta a month ago, 60mg a day, today she told me to start taking two a day. I haven't noticed any relief yet.

Cymbalta made me sick. I used to be on Lexapro and that wasnt cutting it. Now I am on Prozac 20 mg a day just to maintain my attitude. If it was up to my doctor id be at least double that along with a high dose of amitriptyline that has never helped for what it is supposed to. Try a natural doctor if the anti dep arent workin.

Hi Linda: Medications are trial and error. You must find what works for you. I use Remeron an antidepressant, flexeril for muscle spasms, talwin nx for pain and also you could have another underlying condition that you need to find to get the relief you need, mine was restless leg syndrome. Sometimes serotonin antidepressants makes Fibro worse.
Talk to your doctor.
