Cymbalta and strattera

Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta and strattera

cymbalta

Are you seeing a doctor or psychiatrist? Since both ilight>cymbaltailight> ilight>andilight> ilight>stratterailight> target norepinephrine, they could conflict, ilight>andilight> could cause more anxiety -- they're both stimulants to a certain extent, though both can also cause sedation, meds being what they are. This drug is used for attention deficit disorder, and that's all it's been approved for and researched for, which doesn't mean it can't be used off-label for your needs, it just means it hasn't been researched for that.
All i can say is that it makes it bearable but the pain is still there. i dont take Ativan but i have taken, ilight>andilight> quit, ilight>cymbaltailight>\Paxil\EffexorCR\ilight>stratterailight>\Lyrica\Prozac. The side effects did not affect me too much but eventually i get to a point where i get tired of taking drugs that are not helping the problem (chest pain). So i think i can live without them. A bit of advice, withdrawl slowly, the withdrawl symtoms can be horrific.
Then, about 2 ½ years ago i had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, ilight>andilight> was diagnosed with OCD ilight>andilight> prescribed Anafranil ilight>andilight> Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, i have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.

it looks as if i'm stalking you on the Forum page. Do you believe i married a computer engineer?? LOL in refernce to you remarks about strattera.........it's great you are feeling like it's helping. i don't claim to know anything about it from experience but Ritalin is over-reated. i took it for two days in attempt to keep me "up" and then i flushed it. i'm pretty sure strattera, Provigil and Ritalin are in completely different catagories.
Wellbutrin 450mg 1xday, ilight>cymbaltailight> 65mg 1xday, Cyclobenzaprine 10mg 1xday, ilight>stratterailight> 60mg 1xday, Amitriptyline 25mg 1xday, Nabumetone 500mg 4xday, Lyrica 50mg 4xday, Slulxin 500mg 6xday, and Ortho Cyclin birth control. i am having strokes now and the docs don't know why. i have taken 3 MRis, scans, gave blood, etc....and all comes back showing nothing. i have been in the hospital and they chalk it alll up to ?muscleskelatal.
in the last 4 months, Since August 2007, i have had 2 very bad TiA strokes, 2 bad TiA strokes, 1 very bad - hospital says some sort of allergic reaction i inhaled from the air - reaction to something that made my throat sweel up ilight>andilight> start closing in on me ilight>andilight> i was getting a smaller ilight>andilight> smaller area in my throat to breath. i was rushed to the hospital and treated me and after 5-6 hours they released me being ok. But i was still not ok.
i was diagnosed with ADHD at 9 or 10 y/o ilight>andilight> was put on 2 types of medicine one was ritalin ilight>andilight> the other was imipramine. i took ritalin during the day and imipramine at night. Anyway i was on this for several years taken off during the summer why school was out. it helped out alot. Anyway i took this till around age 15 then was taken off due to the fact they were concerned about possible liver damage over time. i was fine for a while and was back to myself again before long.
immodium made no difference. (i stopped going to that doctor ilight>andilight> stopped taking the ilight>cymbaltailight>. Big, big mistake -- had awful, terrible agony from stopping cymbalta cold turkey -- felt like electric jolts in my brain.) Only this time the diarrhea didn't stop when the medication stopped. it's abated some since then -- August 2007 -- but has never fully gone away. i went to a family doctor who put me on Wellbutrin, which i had tolerated well once before. Eight weeks, same result.
Common causes are non-addictive stimulants like ilight>stratterailight>, ilight>andilight> odd reactions to nerve pain relievers like Gabapentin, Pregabalin, ilight>cymbaltailight>, and a few other newer medications. Diet pills, mood enhancers, or energy booster supplements could also contain ingredients in concentrations to cause such effects. Call your doctor before discontinuing any medications or strong supplements. i hope you feel better, and hopefully i helped point you in the right direction.
Just wondering if anyone out there has had such a large cocktail to remain stable ilight>andilight> if anyone knows if adding a lower dose of ilight>stratterailight> ilight>andilight> a small dose of ilight>cymbaltailight> to the mix would cause trouble. i admit i have been taking the 40 mg of strattera every other day even though pdoc switched me to vyvanse. Am taking that as well but just makes me a little moody when it wears off. (as did adderall).
i had also just started taking an additional medication for ADD since i just cant seem to get my brain functioning well ilight>andilight> am on ilight>cymbaltailight>, Vyvanse ilight>andilight> ilight>stratterailight>. i have had cognitive issues for the past 10 years which have increased dramatically in the last year and increased again w/in the last couple of mnths. Word Finding - looking at my dog & not being able to recall his name, along with just daily conversation & not being able to talk w/out sounding like a bumbling idiot.
However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm ilight>andilight> noticed a hard soft tissue knot, ilight>andilight> suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago i had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, i still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Lexapro, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Effexor, ilight>cymbaltailight>, EMSAM, Savella, ilight>stratterailight>, Abilify, Prozac, Pristiq, Provigil, Neurontin i'm now on: Vyvanse, Buspar, Aplenzin. i've also suffered from sinus problems during all of this. i've had sinus surgery but i still wake up congested, and have a loss of smell.
i am on some medications like abilify, lamictal, ilight>stratterailight>, ilight>andilight> ilight>cymbaltailight>. i also take vitamin supplements like a multivitamin, a time release b-complex, and vitamin D. i have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder (mixed state), Social Anxiety Disorder, OCD, and i have been diagnosed with an ULCER. There is a burning in my stomach that used to go away, but now is ever-present and is growing.
Prozac and Paxil both significantly block the pathway for the metabolism of Adderall ilight>andilight> all the amphetamine products. [Wellbutrin ilight>andilight> ilight>cymbaltailight> can block 2D6 at their higher doses.] if you take either of these two antidepressants together with an amphetamine, just watch out. You can significantly become overdosed on the amphetamine and suffer significant side effects. Often this interaction can unpredictably occur several months later.
These symptoms occured 6 weeks after an overdose of ilight>cymbaltailight>/ilight>stratterailight>. i went to see a neuro who gave me an NCV test and neuro exam both came back normal with no evidence of atrophy (Although i think my left thigh seems smaller to me). He then did an EMG of the left leg testing the following muscles: AntTibiialis, MedGastroc, VastusMed, Semimembra, BicepsFemS and the Paraspinal L3, L4, L5 and S1.
i was diagnosed with PTSD shortly after entering treatment that i had developed due to my two deployments to Afghanistan ilight>andilight> iraq. While i was coping with that ilight>andilight> learning that a lot of it stemmed from my childhood i became manic and two weeks into treatment was diagnosed with bipolar. This slowed down my work on the PTSD because it didn’t hurt anymore since i was manic.
Lithium, Lamictal, Depakote, Trileptal, Rispderdol, Geodon, Abilify, Zyprexa, Seroquel, cymbalta, Prozac, Paxil, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Remeron, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, ilight>stratterailight>, Provigil (not necessarily in that order.) The ilight>cymbaltailight> was the only thing that alleviated the panic, but it made me manic, so i'm now not allowed to take any more antidepressants.
in the last 4 months, Since August 2007, i have had 2 very bad TiA strokes, 2 bad TiA strokes, 1 very bad - hospital says some sort of allergic reaction i inhaled from the air - reaction to something that made my throat sweel up ilight>andilight> start closing in on me ilight>andilight> i was getting a smaller ilight>andilight> smaller area in my throat to breath. i was rushed to the hospital and treated me and after 5-6 hours they released me being ok. But i was still not ok.
He has taken him off of Adderall and Straterra ilight>andilight> He will start ilight>cymbaltailight> 60 mg. ilight>andilight> Lamital today. He is on sick leave until July. We have no action plan right now. We are not scheduled to go back to the Nuerologist until July. His symptoms have gotten incresing worse in the last week. Please give me your expert advise on what you would do if it were your spouse.
Apparently they work also inhibit seratonin uptake or something, ilight>andilight> the combination of that ilight>andilight> the ilight>cymbaltailight> could make me dangerously manic. i do get a slight energy boost from the cymbalta, but not nearly enough to be functional. if Provigil works for you without side effects -- and insurance will help make it affordable! -- then it can be a great drug!!

i think you will find limited studies about marijuana, hcv, treatment ilight>andilight> its pros ilight>andilight> cons. While there are studies that suggest that daily marijuana use may or does increase the chance of liver fibrosis and progression, i would guess that daily use of many pharmaceuticals could possibly do the same. How many studies have have there been about how daily pharmaceutical use effect liver fibrosis? i would guess that moderate use of any of these drugs would limit any damage you might sustain.
