Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta and klonopin


Avatar n tn He practices in Harahan on Jefferson Highway. I just saw him yesterday and he put me on Klonopin and Cymbalta for bipolar II disorder. He is a really good doctor and not liberal minded like many of the psychiatrist in the area now. I promise he will take care of you. What ever you do, do not see Dr. John Hutchins or Dr. Ken Roy. They are psychiatrists are an addiction recovery service on Wabash street. They will not even consider prescribing anything that has the risk of dependance.

Avatar f tn msanxiety? Reminds me of Ms PacMan, but yours is no fun game, by any means. Honestly, if I can't make heads nor tails of what you wrote, it comes as no surprise that YOU can't, either. So I suggest you plant yourself squarely in front of a psychiatrist and ask the "WHAT'S GOING ON AROUND HERE?" question and THEN start a course of therapy because the only thing missing in what you wrote is any mention of the most important chemical of ALL: your own brain juice.
396332 tn?1320007215 There are so many factors to consider it can be pretty confusing. When I would have side effect questions I would usually go talk to my pharmacist and/or doctor to see what else I could do...keep us posted!
Avatar n tn he gave me 3 weeks of samples of cymbalta and said try these and see me in 2 weeks. everything i've read about cymbalta, is that it treats depression, and 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?
1452582 tn?1285096944 He said the klonopin was a band-aid, and the Cymbalta will really start fixing the problem with my neuro-transmitters and serotonin or whatever. He said that Cymbalta could initially CAUSE anxiety (which is apparently what I have), so the Klonopin will help with that. He also said I should take the full prescription for the Klonopin (.25mg three times a day). I'm really not wanting to go on all these drugs, and wanting to get better on my own.

Avatar m tn I just began a Cymbalta (30mg/day) treatment regimen, and 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.

1258539 tn?1293843802 Cymbalta worked for me for a short period, then I was switched to Lexapro and a mild generic klonopin and together they make me feel much better.

Avatar n tn I have just went thru the wors thing in my life and that was the withdrawals feom Cymbalta. I have been on that for about 2 years and also on Klonopin for the same amount of time. I am currently taking 4 mg. of Klonopin a day and was wondering if anyone else has been prescribed this much? I would like to come off of it but from what I have read, it mat be worse then the Cymbalta withdrawls.
Avatar n tn I started klonopin approx a week ago and it doesn't seem to be working as yet. I have increased anxiety almost every day. It doesn't help that personally I am under a lot of stress with family visiting from out of town (that is very stressful). I previously took needed...not everyday...about every other day. Will the klonopin help with more time or should I go back to Xanax? Any thoughts? Anyone else experience this?
1117787 tn?1259023046 I was previously on 1mg klonopin, and then my dose was increased to 2mg/day plus upto 1 mg more if needed. As this was not helping for breakthrough anxeity and social/panic disorder i was prescribed 0.5mg niravam t taking an average of 0.5mg/day(not everyday) for a month; and due to recent stressful events 1mg/ day on average(but not daily) , never taking more than needed.
Avatar n tn I have been on 60mg of Cymbalta for generalized anxiety disorder and feelings of panic for sometime now. This is the 3rd med I have tried, and none of them have seemed to work too well. My doctor switched me to 15mg of Buspar twice daily. I stopped the Cymbalta and started the Buspar at the same time. Well, the Cymbalta withdrawls started within two days and were completely unbarable.

Avatar f tn i believe your doc will know if you have allergy! didn't you ask him what cause this symptoms then! are you sure it is not the begining of bad cold or kind of mouth infection!
329994 tn?1301666848 I took Cymbalta for 4 yrs and finally just got off of it. While Cymbalta did help manage both my depression and 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 f tn How long before 20 mg a day would help and how long do side effects last? Also will klonopin cause vaginal irritation or burning?
Avatar f tn , duloxetine) has a combination mechanism of action involving serotonin and norepinephrine making it useful in depression and also neuropathic pain. When a peripheral nerve is injured there is an increase in pain sensitive fibers leading to increase pain recognition. This causes a change in central (i.e., brain/spinal cord) recognition of pain. One major neurotransmitter involved in this is norepinephrine. Cymbalta works to modulate this change.
Avatar n tn After reading this forum I decided to ask the doc at today's appt about switching to Klonopin. What is your opinion or anyone else who may know of taking both of these meds...Cymbalta and Klonopin and also switching from Xanax to Klonopin? Thank you for any input.
Avatar f tn I am finally putting all the problems together and see that I have most of the same problems that ya'll have talked about. The pain, anxiety, depression and of course the fibro. I was taking cymbalta and it worked at first or so it seemed but for about a year now it just seems it has done nothing for me. My doctor gave me the savella last week and in a week i have been turned around mentally and physically. I hope anyone that is given this med can take it and it works well for you.
