Common Questions and Answers about 60 mg cymbalta weight loss

cymbalta

I have been taking it since April and that hasn't abated any. Unfortunately I did not experience any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> of appetite from it like everyone says. I take 200 mg a day. But if the other side effects haven't gone away, those proably don't either, and increasing the dose would probably make them worse. You could try phentermine or Bontril for appetite control if you wanted to try something with less side effects.
It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> especially since it was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing Weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
I started taking Metformin for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> on 12/7/07 and have lost 8lbs. I was impressed because I was not that good over the holidays. I am back on to the program now and hope to continue to lose. It is helpful to see that other people have had sucess with Metformin.
I lowered to 60 mg a day for a few days, (I ran out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span>) then started 20 mg per Dr. prescription on Celexa. I am definitely suffering withdrawal from Cymbalta. What dose should I be taking of Celexa to help avoid withdrawal? If both meds are SSRI, then why is withdrawal so bad?
Don't know if you'll see this as last post is so old, but I have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span> (60 mgs in summer; 90 in winter) for years for my fibromyalgia. I noticed that when I did air travel, I would experience at least a day (or 2) of Fibro pain within 3 days of flying. I wondered what I could do to prevent these flare ups after flying. I decided to try Melatonin. It helped so well with flying! No Fibro flare ups! I wondered what would it be like to take it regularly?
When I lost my baby I went back on it going between 75 and 150 mg. I never lost the baby <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> and have gone from wearing a size 10 in May 2005 to a 14/16 now. I was recently talking with a dr. friend when he explained to me the dose-dependent effects of the SSRI and SNRI effects. No wonder I have no get-up-and-go. At 75 mg I am mostly gettin serontonin effects. No libido, not caring much about my appearance, and Weight gain.
Cymbalta balances hormones. Stress hormone & another. Read what you get from the prescription. Take it at night if the nausea bothers you, until your body adjusts. After a few months, I was able to switch back to daytime. I take 30 mg. when I get up with lots of water. Then when I eat breakfast, I take the other 60 mg. At 60 mg. the pain & stiffness was gone. We added 30 mg. more for the depression. I have energy. Spring up from my chair without a struggle.
I'm not sure that Wellbutrin is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> miracle. For me, I've noticed that it curbs my appetite tremendously. I forget that I'm even hungry. I see that others feel the opposite, so it depends on the person. But I did switch drugs because I was on Zoloft for a year and a half and gained 30 lbs. and could not, for the life of me, lose any of it. I could eat 700 calories a day and exercise 30 minutes a day and still not lose one pound.
I`m just now getting results using a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> clinic. Pills, shots, diet exercise, and not much food. And water, lots of water. I am still on effexor and probably will be for a while yet. This diet , is at least motivating me to really keep working at it and hopefully be able to get off the diet meds, and the effexor sometime,too.
Klonopin can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> gain, depending on the individual. In me, it caused me to lose about 50 lbs. (and I am not a big individual). It also caused depression, decreased appetite, blurred vision, ineffective digestion and insomnia (it affects stages 3 and 4 of your sleep). I would highly recommend that an individual get on anything other than Klonopin (or any other of the Benzodiazepines). These are some of the most addictive drugs on the planet.
I understand that it takes a long time to get this drug out of your system and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> is very slow. I think that most of the 4 pound <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> Loss is because I fasted for a few days and took UltraClear which is a powdered "metabolic detoxification" product you mix with water. I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet. It is a de-tox flush that I thought would help get Lexapro out of my system. I think it has helped.
He has been taking 10 mg of Ambien nightly for maybe 8 YEARS, has been down to taking 5 mg for about a year. He has been taken off the Ambien, but what are the long term effects? I find alot of info on short term effects, but could his memory issues be due to AMBIEN? Please help.
Your hormones will be messed up for years after stopping this shot. It will be your most difficult <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> you ever lose. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> is easier after pregnancy due to breast feeding and all the other hormones that go into effect after childbirth. I had always heard hormones are something very delicate that can be knocked out of kilter very easily. I was so happy to have such an easy form of birth control in DP, and was happy to be free of the periods. I will never do it again.
I found something else though that keeps my mind in check but doesn't affect my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> negatively, but I exercise also and eat right. I'm on 10 mg of Haldol, 200 mg of Topamax and 2mg of Xanax for anxiety and that places me at the right state of mind. I just take the xanax as neeeded though so I don't get addicted.
I called my doctor today and the nurse told me the reason for the 150 mg was that my family doctor wanted to help me with extra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> and thought this might do the trick. I asked about Cymbalta as I am taking 60 mg and he increased it to 120 mg, sort of nervous about this as it is designed at high doses for people with pain. That isn't me. We will see. The endocrinologist indicated my doctor had me in hyperthyroidism.
I am currently taking 60 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span> and 2 grams (1 morning - 1 night) of Xanax. I do experience depression and panic/anxiety.

I feel that the drugs are making me worse (anti-social, fear, Weight gain, poor attitude and Loss of any ambition to do anything but lay around). I desperately need help.
Pediatric dose is 20 mg every other day. And yes, whoosh disappears within about 6 hrs of taking a dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span>. I weaned slowly, my neurologist programmed the process but after a week or so off, the whooshy thing began and progressed to the point I couldn't work. My neuro did not prescribe it for the TN but had switched me to it per my request. I liken this "whoosh " sensation in the head to driving in my car, trying to tune in to a radio signal but my car can stay linked to it.
two weeks after i had started the topamax i went on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span> 30 mg the first week then 60 mg the second, but i had to stop it cause quite honestly all that medication does is mess your body up. my whole digestive track and stomach has been messed up since, i started with constipation, now i have diarrhea often, stomach cramps, and Loss of appetite from the topamax. i started smoking weed this year, and its the only thing that helps me eat and maintain my Weight.
What dosage are you on? When I first started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span> at 30 mg it worked AMAZING the first time I actually had hope, but after about a month it started to lose its affects so she increased it again which only made it worse like almost the worst I've ever been, I was so incredibly suicidal and impulsive that I ended up in a psych hospital for almost a week. At the hospital they increased my Cymbalta (again) to 90 mg and added 150 of wellbutrin.
I am taking 60 mg Paxil at night, 15 mg of Buspar 3 times a day, a thyroid pill, Neurontin for back pain, and have tried Trazodone, Remeron, Seroquel, Cymbalta, all of em for slsep. Nada. I can't fall asleep at all but I really, really have to be waken up in almost an ice cold pool of water to wake up.
OK, have been prescribed pain killers for a few years. I was getting 180 norco and 60 Kadian for pain. I moved to WA and have been with out meds for a while. I went through minor withdrawls, no sleep, fatigue, no motivation runs, etc. Now I got my Dr up here and am getting a referal, and more meds. I am kinda wanting to shy away from the pain meds and deal with the pain, but instead go on an anti depressant, anxiety medication. I have symptoms of dresion an anxiety.
I am currently taking 60 mg. of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span> (morning) and 2 grams of Xanax (morning & bedtime) per day. How can I wean off of these drugs and get help with my depression and panic/anxiety? I feel like I am losing my mind and life is passing me by.

for example paroxetine causes sedation and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> gain, and prozac causes activation and a bit of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span>. Citalopram is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> and sleep neutral in most people. All SSRIs and SNRIs have sexual side effects, EXCEPT perhaps Pristiq, a new SNRI that has very low incidence of sexual side effects in the one or two trials that have been done with the medication.
My doctor prescribed it for my migraines as I had requested it since all the other treatments seemed to have Weight gain as a side effect while this one was the opposite with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> as a possibility.

I many other symptoms, but I don't want to take all of your time. The doctor has me on 60 mg. of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Cymbalta</span>, .04 mg. of Clonidine, and 1 mg of Xanex at bedtime to help me sleep. I did not have high blood pressure until the POTS. I used to have a blood pressure of 117/68.

My doc prescribed it for me for Weight Loss.( 50 mg/day) I have not lost a pound...nor have I lost my appetite. Irritability? Yes. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span>--no. I am on Zoloft 50mg/day for depression for 11 years now.

I have been on 60 mg of Lyrica for 5 years- treating Fibromyalgia and I've gained almost 30 lbs. I can't lose the Weight and want to go off the Lyrica. I also take 60 mg of Cymbalta every day. I HATE the way I feel if I miss a dose, or even take it later in the day. I've never had an addiction problem in my life, but this is so scary. I really thought I was going crazy until I googled forums discussing the w/d symptoms.
