Avatar n tn I went off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> in May '08.I had some moments of light-headedness,especially when laughing.Kinda nerve wracking.Hope this helps, also had short bouts of pain in different places and 3 weeks of the runs until the docs decided it was probably the cymbalta.my symptoms were 'contra-indicated'.....
4753943 tn?1359938169 Did your doc just tell you to stop the Effexor and start the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>? What dose of Effexor are you stopping at, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> what dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> are you starting at? Some people have seamless transitions, while others report some symptoms of a discontinuation syndrome, like you mentioned above. Hopefully, you'll have a smooth transition. Definitely let us know how you're feeling.
Avatar n tn he gave me 3 weeks of samples of cymbalta and said try these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> see me in 2 weeks. everything i've read about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>, is that it treats depression, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if fairly new on the drug market. i was disapointed because i figured the doctor would give me something on an as needed basis. why would he suggest cymbalta? will it work for anxiety/panic?
Avatar m tn Hi Diane. I see that you must have ongoing balance issues, while on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>-for posting again. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> side effects which may pertain to this are: *Common - dizziness *Rare- orthostatic hypotension (specially at the start ) cymbalta belongs to a class of drugs called Serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) These drugs act as inhibitors of the reuptake (re-absorption) of the neurotransmitter Serotonin by the originating neuron.
177382 tn?1253044740 These medicines are thought to work by increasing the activity of chemicals called serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. Where both Paxil <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> work on Serotonin the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> works on Norepinephrine which is the chemical that helps with pain sensation in the body. Since you had a problem with serotonin, just like I do, ask your doctor about Wellbutrin. This medicine focuses on Norepinephrine and dopamine which is an energy chemical.
Avatar f tn cymbalta 3 yrs ago I went thru treatment for opiate withdrawal after many years of self prescribed pain relief. I had to wait 24hrs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then I was put on suboxone for withdrawal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> drug cravings <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> for pain management and depression. (I have been on antidepressants for 30yrs.) Anyway, this combination has been a miracle for me as my pain has been completely manageable with OTC if needed, have had no urge to use, nor any depression issues.
Avatar m tn First, I hope you tapered off this drug as slowly as you needed to, as quitting abruptly can be much more difficult. Because you were only on it a month, you probably won't get a significant withdrawal, but individuals differ so nobody can tell you what you'll feel.
Avatar n tn I stop taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> about a week ago. Since then I have experienced headaches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nausea is this common? I was taking 60mgs for about a year for my fibromaylga.
Avatar f tn I'm currently on 100 mg of Lamictal, but he doesn't want to increase that until I'm off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>. It's my second day at a lower dose (30 mg to 20 mg) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I already can feel it! I really didn't expect to notice a difference with only 10 mg less. I just am anxious, on edge and overall blah feeling. Anyone else have this experience coming off?
Avatar f tn It solved my rapid heart rate but recently my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lightheadedness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fuzzy vision have been worse. Do you think I am getting used to this drug? and after reasearaching on the web, why do I never see info about POTS and cymbalta?
Avatar m tn I just began a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> (30mg/day) treatment regimen, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> coincidently ran out of clonazepam one week later. Rather than wait in the ER for 4 hours to see a doc, I am waiting for my next scheduled psychiatric appointment for a refill. It's been two weeks now, and my appointment is in another 2 weeks. I was prescribed .5mg/X2/day (morning & night) of Clonazepam (along with Trazodone (150mg at bedtime) for insomnia.
Avatar n tn can some1 tell me if extreme physical activity increases the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if i should take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> when i get home from school instead of l8er that night?

1185895 tn?1266611690 ) My doctor also gave me some samples of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> 30mg. I have not yet started on it. My question is are they safe to take together? What about side affects? I do not like the dizziness and weird ear "sounds" that I am getting on the Clonazepam. Also, I am currently on medication for thyroid(Levothyroxin) as well as blood pressure(Cozaar), and Propoxypnen-APAP 100-650MG(for my spinal pain). Should I start on the cymbalta? Will it interact with my other medication?
1490607 tn?1288383290 Has any one heard of or experienced being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>/or Neurontin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> where the side effects suddenly became MS like symptoms after being on them for a year?
3052462 tn?1340223481 I was recently on cymbalta 60 mg daily, seemed to be tolerating it well, however, suddenly I began having falling spells, dizziness, memory loss, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> total loss of bladder control. One day I forgot to take my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that day I no longer had a complete loss of balance. I went in to my doctor, he sent me for an MRI. I was diagnosed with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. My Question is: Is it possible that the cymbalta caused me to GET the NPH or did it just push it to the forefront?
Avatar f tn dizziness, nausea, headache, paresthesia, fatigue, vomiting, irritability, insomnia, diarrhea, anxiety, and hyperhidrosis (increased sweating). Search <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> PDR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Eli Lilly P.S. When my grandfather wanted to stop his cymbalta (after being well informed of the Pros/Cons), I just sprinkled a tiny bit of the capsule into the trash and closed the capsule back up. Each week I sprinkled a little more into the trash. You MUST NOT swallow the tiny beads without the protective capsule coating !!!
329994 tn?1301666848 I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> for 4 yrs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> finally just got off of it. While <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> did help manage both my depression <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> muscle pain, the side effects were what i hated about it. I never had digestion problems from it, but my stomach hurt constantly and my appetite disappeared. Eating became a chore and if i got distracted with school/work responsibilities, i would forget to eat, sometimes for 2 days. I also developed hyperhydrosis and always had a chemical/metalic taste in my mouth.
Avatar n tn Recently however, she has been overwhelmed by school <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> relationship drama <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> has emptied as many as 4 pills out on her counter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> snorted them. The result is a terrifying tear between getting her help and respecting her wishes for me to stay with her and not get help. She started abusing the drug like this more frequently until it got to the point where her boyfriend and i tried to get her to stop. She ended up fighting both of us off like she had completely gone insane.
Avatar f tn I have in the last 4 months tapered myself off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms. I have been two weeks totally off this drug . The dizziness and brain zaps are getting better, but my taste buds are still horrible. It feels like the front of my tongue has been burnt and it feels like my teeth are coated with rubber. How long do these withdrawal symptoms last. I can handle it all, but the taste bud sensation is horrible.
Avatar n tn Night sweats, felt like I was going crazy, nausea, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>, confusion. I learned the hard way. What dosage are you on with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>? Mine is 60mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> for the first week I had to take the capsule, open it and pour it into a cup of apple juice, mix it around, then drink half of the apple juice. This was so I'd build my body up to the full 60mg, but through 30mg over a week's time. I had no side effects by doing that.
Avatar n tn I am off the Suboxone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> want to get off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have read some statements from others who have been on cymbalta and heard the withdrawl from it can be horrendous.
911808 tn?1244685314 I HAVE BEEN SLOWLY TAKING MY SELF OFF OF cymbalta ON THIS PAST FRIDAY WAS MY LAST DOSE OF <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> NOW I AM GOING THROUGH W/D <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> MY DR. GAVE ME T3 TO HELP WITH THE PHYSICAL PAIN THAT I WAS IN FROM THE W/D'S. I AM NOW JUST SUFFERING FROM THE MENTAL PART OF IT. LIKE, dizziness, VERTIGO, IM NOT REALLY SURE HOW TO EXPLAIN HOW MY HEAD FEELS BUT EVERY NOW and THEN I HAVE THIS THROBBING VIBRATING FEELING THAT SHOOTS FROM MY HEAD DOWN THROUGH MY HandS TO MY STOMACH THIS IS WHAT I CAN NO LONGER HandLE.
1408467 tn?1281401943 I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> in the past for about 4-5 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the withdrawal lasted for about 1 month and it was mostly brain zaps (brain shivers). What can help you relieving some symptoms would be to boost you intake of choline/B complex vitamins, omega-3 (only fish oil). Healthy diet and exercise is also important.
Avatar n tn sound when moving my eyes and I've also had some mild <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> for several days. I Googled the symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> found them described in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> withdrawal. Went and checked my weekly pill container and found that I missed putting the cymbalta in the box and haven't had it in five days. Just wanted to say thanks for the website and I wonder how I survived without the Internet!
Avatar f tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>, tingling feelings like pins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> needles, sleep disturbances (vivid dreams, nightmares, inability to sleep), fatigue, sleepiness, feeling restless or agitated, feeling anxious, feeling sick (nausea) or being sick (vomiting), shaking (tremor), headaches, feeling irritable, diarrhoea, excessive sweating or vertigo. These symptoms are usually not serious and disappear within a few days, but if you have symptoms that are troublesome you should ask your doctor for advice.
Avatar n tn You could try that too with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>, take your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> at night. My husband took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> for four days straight he was sick, like he had the flu. Then it was over and he was fine. When he weaned off it, same thing, even though he went slow, it still affected him that way.
Avatar f tn felt like flu/hangover/death combo that lasted 2 days, each day I get a bit better 4th day off could get out of bed , take small walk outside, 5th day could do house chores etc. 6th day could drive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> went to work ..still have headaches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> if I move to fast. Tomorrow will be day 7, each day improves but praying and hopeful I will be able to be 100% soon. This has been a nightmare!!! I ordered neuro endure mini after reading that might help waiting for mail man to deliver on 1/7/16.
881463 tn?1245349249 I have now been on 60 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> for 2 weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 1 mg per day of clonazepam, the latter of which which have helped calm my panic attacks somewhat. I worry so much about the mid chest and back pain and tight breathing sensations being something awful like cancer that it consumes me. It's an awful way to not live life and be miserable and constantly scared.
