177382 tn?1253044740 She also told me that she had a Fibro patient that was on Cymbalta and that she was tolerating it just fine, so I'll just wait and see how I do with the upped Ultram.
Avatar f tn For some, Cymbalta does work and I can say that it did for me when I was taking it. I hope you find relief soon and take care.
Avatar f tn If I were you, I'd wean off the hydo first, then the Ultram, and the Cymbalta lasy. Having the antidepressant around during the opiate weaning process can be very beneficial.
Avatar f tn If I had bad back pain again I would take it despite the problems of getting off. I tried vicadin and I had one good day and the rest complete insomnia. My friend had the same problem. So that was out for me. It is a side effect of vicadin. Anyway, Tramadol did dull the pain for me to tolerate it. I still have chronic back pain but not as bad and I'm walking and doing more but not back to normal and it has been 2 years. Long story. I will and have to get out of this.
376940 tn?1241685607 Hello iam new here I am taking tramadol 50 mgs,neurontin 300mg,hydrocodon-acetaminoph,a pain patch of 25mcg/hr and cymbalta 90 mg. And my Dr. Wants me to take effexor xr 75mg in lu of cymbalta (the cymbalta was given to me by a shrink for pain control) but I am told that effexor xr n tramadol don't mix.
Avatar n tn For me, methadone has gotten me off the pills and because it does not get you high it just blocks withdrawal symptoms so I can go to work and live my life normally. I feel normal now and it is also alot cheaper than buying ultram etc. It is safe and I dont have to worry about seizures. Methadone has a bad reputation but for the ones who honestly want to live their life and feel normal and not have to worry about getting caught for illeagal activites it is a life saver.
Avatar f tn I have been on Remeron for a few months and it has really helped with my anxiety. Recently my Doctor added cymbalta for nerve pain. This is only my third day with the cymbalta and my anxiety level is shooting through the roof. Also I have this dang ringing in my ears that does not want to go away. I questioned my doctor about taking remeron and cymbalta together and asured me that they work great together. I honestly don't know if I can stand this feeling. My husband wants me to hang in there.
Avatar n tn I went to a in stay mental health treatment and ins would not cover me because they said ultram was not addicting so they to admit me under loratab add.My regular doc told me that I should never been put on both of those meds at the same time. Does anyone know about this? My monthly intake of meds during that year was, 240 ultram, 60 loratab, 30 lyrica,and 30 cymbalta every month. I was just wondering if any one had a comment about this.
Avatar m tn I would not suggest you use sub tram works in to different ways as an antidepressant and as a pain reliever sub can do anything about the antidepressant part and that honestly the worst part of with.Taper is always the best way to do it with tram .whether you taper or ct tram wd is going to be rough for about a week .
Avatar n tn I have now been ultram free for almost two weeks (unbelievable withdrawals as expected)however now Im am struggling with mood swings and depression. I am very annoyed by everyone and everything and the only time I seem to be happy is when I am left completely alone. I am thrilled to be off of the ultram and now I am wondering if my depression is a temporary side effect or do I now need to be on an anti depressant? Is there anything that can help with this besides taking other medication?
535089 tn?1400677119 I took this back in 2006 because the percocet was making me ill due to my gallbladder quit working and the doctor had me try the ultram. I had horrible side effects with the ultram. It makes my entire body have the shakes and it clouds my head just with one dose. I took it twice and ended up throwing out the bottle. Ultram did not help with the pain whatsoever. Ibuprofen works better then ultram for me.
Avatar n tn However, if you are taking Vicodin(more addicting than Ultram) and are not psychologically addicted to it and can wean yourself off quickly, then Ultram shouldn't be a problem for you. I would NOT go straight from Vicodin to Ultram without giving your body a chance to totally detox from the Vicodin because it may cause some withdrawal symptoms. I think Ultram is definitely a lesser risk than Vicodin for a person who has chronic pain.
Avatar f tn I am to take 60mg Cymbalta 1x daily (I've already been on this for awhile) and 75mg Lyrica 2x daily I had a bad reaction taking Cymbalta and Savella together so am leery of trying another combination, but my PM doctor seems to think this will work. We are in a "trial and error" stage right now...and I'm so sick of feeling like a lab rat! I also worry about weight gain...
719785 tn?1232905118 they increased it to 60 mg and added ultram. It just made me more forgetful, clumsy and tired. I guess my question is... Is this normal and are there any other treatments that actually work. The pain makes me very irritable and the lack of sleep/rest isn't helping either.
479459 tn?1246745619 Thanks. I got these when going off of cymbalta. It must be from decreasing the seratonin is all I can guess... *****. thanks for replying.
Avatar f tn I tried Ultram and it didn't even touch my pain, it was like I hadn't taken anything at all! I am and have been on various opiate meds for sometime now, when I told my doctor that Ultram was like taking nothting... he said, "well I hear that from a lot of patiences, and well Ultram is'nt all that".
Avatar n tn obviously, that Ultram/Tramodol was much like Effexor. I worry about Trazodone and my Cymbalta...I think I will research those 2 combos. I know it wasn't recommended for mixing with Zoloft...moderate interactions...kinda scary. Not so sure with the Cymbalta tho. Again, thanks for the info!
Avatar f tn The PA gave me some hydrocodo and some Cymbalta to take along with the Ultram and I said I couldn't sleep and quit taking the Cymbalta on June 8, 2011. Serious sweating...crying, confused...thoughts of suicide....faint feeling...and other flu like symptoms. My PA is also a friend on Facebook, so I sent him a message and told him my symptoms...he said "I'm sorry your feeling bad, you should try an internal medcine doctor in another town". Huh? Seriously?
Avatar f tn my daughter is very anxious so the dr put her on both the cymbalta 30 mg with the paxil of 20 for one week and then 15 paxel for another week and then 10 paxil and increase to 60 cymbalta. she had a brain trauma in a car accident and has to deal with alot so is this too much. she had a seizure on the ultram but she took too many at one time for a headache..
606078 tn?1247268153 I stopped taking the predisone about 1and half months ago. I lowered my cymbalta back to original dose and I feel the same. Keep your head up and try and feel good.

681148 tn?1437665191 It worked just fne, and then my syptoms got worse and the pain more severe. I am now taking Ultram ER 200mg 2X a day. The Ultram really has helped, but then I was having break through pain and he gave me norco and they work well together. I still have flares, but I don't think anything is going to stop those things all together. Good luck.
Avatar f tn So today when I told him that things are going downhill and I want off the cymbalta and put on something else he tells me to stay on cymbalta and gives me seroquel xr and ultram. I am wondering if anyone here has been on this combo of meds. I have taken ultram before, but never with seroquel and cymbalta. I would like advice.
369224 tn?1200677576 I can stay off the lorcets if I need to and withdrawals are not very bad as i've developed a way to ween myself off lorcets/percocets/vicodins whatever I was prescribed. I'm down to about 2-4 ultram a day now and ithink its really killing my mental state. Depression and anxiety are killing me. I'm now taking clonopin .5mg for anxiety and soon to take effexor 75mg for depression. I've noticed for the past 6-7 years i've been taking this drug that i've been spiraling out of control.
