The pain side of it is usually used to treat diabetic neuropathy, if I am not mistaken it helps with anxiety related pain such as headaches and muscle spasms caused by tension. The package insert does warn that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbaltaan> can cause arrhythmias. While I was on it I had a 24 hour holter. The results were really bad and I told my cardio then that I was on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbaltaan>.

Avatar f tn I am wondering if anyone knows of any natural products that are known to help with <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nic</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> disorder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd/or anxiety that might be worth trying. I'm thinking maybe I'll try something like that first and if that doesn't work, I'll give an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbaltaan> a try again. My depression is not really bad at this point, I just have low motivation, am tired often, restless, have a hard time concentrating, etc. Not suicidal or crying all the time...I can deal with it without meds in other words.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd of course the fibro.

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.

He said that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbaltaan> 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 f tn I was wondering if anyone here went on meds for your Depression and now has caused you to have <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nic</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> Disorder, or anxiety etc...due to the medicine?????????

Avatar n tn I would like to know if Depersonalization disorder is a real <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd distinct disorder? I see thousands of articles online about it, and active discussion forums about it. I believe I have it because I have severe chronic symptoms of derealization, the symptoms I have are exactly as the disease is described....but I keep getting diagnosed with everything BUT this disorder....an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>panican> disorder, depression, even schizoaffective disorder.

I've tried natural remedies for both including SaM-e, anxiety Control which is comprised of several herbs and amino acids along with GaBa, and 5-htp. The SaM-e worked for a while with depression, then it seemed to cause insomnia. I was probably on too high of a dose (400mg). I may try it again at a lower dose. anxiety Control helps if you are willing to take 6 pills a day.
