Cymbalta for children

Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta for children

cymbalta

Thank you all for your replies. I'm trying to put this all in perspective. It seems as if all anti depressants have some associated side effects on both ends... while iniitally taking it and the build up to see if it will work.... and then on the other end when trying to go off it. I guess it is a very individual thing as others have said. And weighing the pros and cons. It is a very difficult decision indeed. Is cymbalta any worse than others at "weaning off"?
Hang in there, but do talk to them about a plan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> coming off of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> - splitting the dosage won't work....trust me. Your body will adjust to the dosage over time - it has to be a constant gradual decline in medication dosage - but it still is really painful. If you start to have hallucinations or suicidal thoughts, be sure to let your pdoc know right away or go directly to the ER. I had bad suicidal thoughts when I was coming off of cymbalta. Be careful - cymbalta is horrible.
d also want it out of my system before I took other drugs -- that's another reason it's an odd drug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> an eleven year old. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> is also pretty serious stuff <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> anyone, let alone someone that young, and acts quite differently than Luvox as it also targets norepinephrine, which can make it very stimulating for some. I wouldn't see this doc again, and I'd find a psychiatrist who knows how to treat children. Also look into cymbalta's liver toxicity.
I just moved and my new dr. dosen't want me to be on the clonzepam, says it's too addictive, he told me to take 1 0.5mg pill <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 7 days, the make the switch starting on day 8. This starts tomorrow. I didn't think I had anything to worry about, but w/ all the stuff about bezo with drawl that I've read on here, now I'm really scared. I have 2 children and have to be up and functional 24-7. Is this going to be fine or should I do somethung, and if so what?
Valerian root is safe to take with these other drugs. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> really isn't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> everyone. If you're not getting pain relief in 2 weeks, insist on something else. Avoid the narcotics, because they will just make things worse in the long run. If your dx is depression, please please please stay on top of the pain. Be as proactive as possible with diet and exercise. Message me anytime.
I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 4 yrs and finally just got off of it. While <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> 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.
Also ask you doctor and pharmacist for a proper tapering schedule <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>. Maybe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> withdrawal reasons you can break the capsules and take some twice a day and slowly taper off. At that point I really don't know. My advices for now is that you should talk to your doctor and pharmacist to tell them your intention of quitting this drug. Being referred to a psychiatrist sounds like a possible option to maybe try other medications for withdrawal purposes.
I also have Fibromyalgia / CFS, along with Severe Derpression, Anxiety disorder, Chronic Pain. My Psychiatrist put me on cymbalta a month ago for the pain & depression. But he has me taking the cymbalta & 1 Effexor each morning & 2 Effexor late afternoon. I am not sure how much it is helping yet, I am not crying as much. I can no longer work because of my health. I have learned that you do need some kind of support group, & it is okay to ask for help.
I am not sure whether or not the affect it has on norephineprine would counteract the negative effects of opiate withdrawl, or help? A doctors feedback would be helpful. Bottom line is that I have gotten a prescription <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> and don't no if I should take it or not? Will it help? Please help me with everything I need to know about cymbalta. Even in theory, would it help alliviate the symptoms of opiate withdrawl?
My 16 yr old son was just diagnosed with severe depression (all this time we thought it was ADHD)....the pyschiatrist started him on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> and 1/2 of a 2 mg Abilify......I am very scared about what I am reading about these two drugs......especially about coming off of them :-(......and so far I have only read that Abilify is only approved for teens with bipolar or schitzophrania. So far the dr has not answered my questions regarding the use of these two meds. I am very concerned!
I have an incredibly supportive husband and family, but I am tired of missing out. I take 120mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> as my Neurologist likes the drug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> FMS and I take 2 mg of Klonapin for anxiety, although I am beginning to think it isn't enough. Brief history of my life *ha*: I've been happily married for 23 years. Husband was on active duty for 21 years. When he retired we moved back to Texas to be near family and at this same time my oldest son left for the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.
Please try to remember how bad it is right now and stay far away from all drugs in the future. You are doing not just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> yourself, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>children</span> as well. You have too much at stake. It is just not worth it. Good luck to you and my best wishes.
I take 2000mg Gabapentin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> Neuropathic pain Relief qid(8000mg daily) and 60mg of cymbalta daily.

I stumbled over here yesterday and everybody seemed to be friends and one big family, and NICE, so I thought, heck it won't hurt to try, will it?

  My husband and I wanted to have a third child but I was so terrified I would suffer from PPD once again, but my ob reassured me that I could begin treatment as soon as I delivered.  So i proceeded to wean off of 60mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> and try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> our third.  We were successful in getting pregnant, but just a month or two into it, I had a depressive episode.
I went to Physiotherapy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a full year. It was a doctor at the Operational Stress Injury Clinic who prescribed me the 2000mg qid. 8000mg/day is not a high dose for nerve pain. I am 260lbs. I already take B complex and Vitamin D. What has helped was having my daily dose increased to 12,000mg which I now take in ten divided doses with cayenne pepper capsules to help increase absorption. I also take Naproxen twice daily which increases the absorption by 15%.

I just feel that I need more advice... but I'm not really sure what I need advised on... if that makes any sense?
I just got switched from Darvocet and Soma compound with Codeine because of the severe stomach pain they were causing to a 30mg dose of time released Morphine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the pain, a muscle relaxer called Zanaflex, a medicine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> nerve pain called Lyrica and ambien because even with all this medication I still can't sleep.

I don't know if it would help you but if your Dr would consider an antidepressant, cymbalta turned the corner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me. I had stopped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>/Ambien/MS Contin/Perc's all @ once and thought I was gonna die. Got to day 4-5 and RLS and depression were all I couldn't handle. Got back on my cymbalta and it has made a world ofmdifference in the sleep sept. Just a thought. And really try exercise and steamy shower/bath just before and keep stimulation to a minimum.

Lord knows I've been given lots of them including Wellbutin/Provigil/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>/Lithium.
