Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta maximum dosage

cymbalta

If memory serves me correct 90Mgs a day of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> is the maximum effective <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span>. This basicaly means that in clinical trials any more than 90Mgs of cymbalta was not shown to produce any further impact on the symptoms of the subjects depression. In my case I found cymbalta to be the least effective of the SNRI group of SNRI drugs.
the dopiness mentioned was more of a drugged out stupor for me and only occurred at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> changes. Tingling in the fingers or toes lessens over time; occasionally have bad days. I do tend to have numbness in the tips of my fingers most of the time. these things I've gotten use to. what I've finally discovered from reading here, is the cause of the hair loss which was extreme over the last six months.
Begin with 500 mg (one capsule) two times daily, on an empty stomach with juice. This can gradually be increased by 500 mg per day to two or three capsules, three times daily. For maximum effect, it is best to take 50 mg of vitamin B-6 at the same time, as well as niacin, 500 mg per day, and one gram of vitamin C. Vitamin B-6 is particularly important in regulating the absorption, metabolism, and utilization of amino acids. Caution: With both DLPA and L-tyrosine (described below.
Taking an opiate for an extended period of time usually results in some level of dependence and abrupt discontinuation of the medication can lead to withdrawal symptoms resulting in a failed attempt at discontinuation. the maximum daily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> of Tramadol in a 24 hour period is 400mg and as such your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> is not usually associated with long term effects due to being below the maximum recommended daily dosage.
and increased to 75, 150 and the maximum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> is 225 mg. However, I am under the care of a p-doc and he has me on 300 mg. per day with 20mg. Celexa and 30 mg. of Risperdal. Honestly, I am still having issues but I am willing to give it more time as the Celexa was only introduced 3 wks. ago. Effexor is a wonderful antidepressant but I have been on the drug for 8 yrs. and feel it is losing it's effectivness for me.
For over a year now, I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> for depression. I didn't find out until last December that I indeed have MS. I have noticed that the cymbalta does help the MS pain along with relieving my depression. Due to insurance changes, it will be less expensive for me to take a generic antidepressant in the same category as cymbalta. I believe it is a Seratonin Uptake. I could be wrong. Does anyone else take Paroxetine (Generic for Paxil) and does it help you with the MS pains?
I'd like to keep decreasing Effexor XR -- I'm down from 375 mg to 300 mg per day. the maximum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> the manufacturer recommends is 225 mg, and with the addition of the Wellbutrin, I don't want all of that Effexor XR. I hope this time, that Wellbutrin works. I've heard good things about it. Your experience with it gives me hope.
I am now on seroquel 200mg and cymbalta 120 mg a day this combination of meds has helped me alot. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> exceeds the maximum amount but it helps me with my anxiety. I hope that you can get on some meds that help you. Don't give it it will happen and you will get better. Seeing a therapist on a regular basis has also helped me.
I tried to take Lyrica for a year but it didn't help at all. Once we hit the maximum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span>, I just told my doctor to take me off because it was useless for me to take something that didn't help. He said that was pretty much the only medicine out there for fibro, so all was left was exercise and just to deal with the pain. If you find anything that works, let me know, because I've been suffering for three years with no meds.
I take it for fibro and diabetic peripheral neuropathy and I'm experiencing more symptoms now. they changed my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> from 100 mg 3 times a day to 150 mg twice a day. I'm not sure what the highest dose is so ask your doc about increasing it. I don't where you live but I'm in Western Washington and we've had hot weather for the last four weeks or so and the last two days have been cool and overcast with some rain.
I tried the MS contin but it didn't work on me and gave me stomach problems, and I was taking ibuprofen, which helped, at the maximum, OTC levels, but I developed ischemic Colitis and 3 feet of my colon was almost gangrene, and I can't take NSAIDS anymore. they did help, but the pain of the colitis, (not to mention the docs saying NO ever again.) Well, I took the gabapentin an hour ago, and I am praying again for some relief!
I don't think that would work. I need the Seroquel at bedtime to put me to sleep. I don't sleep if I just take a small dose, and if I don't sleep I get manic, and when if I get manic I can get delusional. I primarily take it for its antipsychotic properties, and the fact that it puts me to sleep at night is a bonus. Sometimes, when I am even just a little manic, my dose of immediate release 450mg isn't enough to put me to sleep. then I have to use Xanax.
I'm already on the maximum dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> (120 mg). I've never noticed any pain relief from it, but I've been on it long enough now that I don't know how bad I'd be if I weren't on it. :) It definitely helps me with mood. I asked to go on an antidepressant about three months after I got sick with my mystery illness, when it became obvious that I wasn't going to be all better in the immediate future.
It affects everyone differently, and with you jumping right into 100mg, I can't say for sure. Honestly, I have been told that 200mg is the maximum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span>! 400mg is A LOT of meds with Lamictal. Did they warn you of SJS? You should speak to your pdoc about the effects. I bet your naseau was HORRIBLE taking that high a dosage right away!!! When you might realize that you are getting more stable is when you have an episode and you can recognize it and deal with it.
I completely agree with nursegirl. 6mg of Xanax per day is the MAXIMUM <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> that should EVER be taken. At this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span>, hospitalization is often required to safely get off the medication. If you really are taking 15 mg Xanax per day (rather than say, 1.5 mg) you must NOT try and get off this on your own. You are in a very serious and dangerous predicament right now and even cutting down by 1 mg per day could result in seizure and/or life threating complications.
I am really concerned that your doctor is confusing the maximum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> for lyrica with the maximum dosage for gabapentin(neurontin). Consistently, lyrica is not recommended in doses over 600 mg. Gabapentin on the other hand can be OK at four-figure amounts. I was taking 2400 mg. before switching to lyrica. Please check and rule this out. I would just wonder how terrible it may (or may not) be to take 4 times the recommended dosage. I'd have him show me where 2500 mg. of lyrica is safe.
Klonopin is a long acting benzo, unlike the short acting benzos like Ativan and Xanax. For maximum efficacy, Klonopin should be taken regularly, usually twice a day. That allows it to build in the plasma, for a more steady state of calm, versus the ups and downs of the shorter acting benzos. Those are better used as "as needed" rescue" meds.
the combo that helped me the most was risperdal, lamictal, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>. took 4 years to find that combo though....i was about to be labeled drug resistant myself. good luck!!
I was taking the maximum number of percocet that I could for breakthrough, and I was getting no pain relief from any of it, mostly because I'd become tolerant to the medications. We switched my prescription to Hydromorph Contin and Dilaudid for breakthrough, and the pain relief is amazing for me, with minimal side effects. So, I have had great success with this change. I hope you find some relief soon.
so we move on and try the Neurontin... I reach the maximum dose of 3600 mg day very fast but with the 8 mg of Klonopin it was too much sedating... also it was doing nothing at all for my anxiety, just pins and needles effect... so we move on with the Lyrica, who was the same as the Neurontin, no improve at all... In the summer of 2007 I choose to withdraw the Klonopin... we taper it with a big dose of Valium... cut to 6 mg of Klonopin + 80 mg of Valium a day, who was a lot sedating at first.
to make a long story short, she upped my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> to 40mgs of OxyContin three times daily and 30mgs of Oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Since she never seemed to follow up on anything, I just swithched Doctor's and my new Doctor seems to know what he is talking about. the new Doc. drew blood and did some other tests. the blood work came back fine, so he too believes that I probably have Fibromyalgia, but he is sending me to a Rheumatoligist too.
Please note, however, Lyrica is filtered through the kidneys and in the beginning of usage of Lyrica I was on the near maximum allowed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> of Lyrica and it resulted in near kidney shut down as reported to me by my Neptrologist (kidney specialist). It seems then that a managed dosage of Lyrica to match individual tolerance can help in the management of pain. It sure helps me with shingles pain management.
if you can't tolerate them or if the panic disorder don't improve after at 8 weeks at the maximum dose, you should switch to another agent like the older TCA's (Imipramine, Clomipramine)... since the TCA's have more side effects, they are harder to start and they increase a lot the anxiety at first... if it's not working you can switch to the MAOI's like the Nardil or the Parnate... but those ones are for treatment resistant cases only...
my doctor gave me samples of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> yesterday to try because he thinks my difficulty taking deep breaths is because of anxiety. the only reason I have any kind of anxiety is because I can't take a deep breath & feel like I'm dying. I'm not a hypochondriac, this is very real. Please, can anyone help me make sense of all of this??
To reduce the tolerance would require dropping back to a lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span> for longer than just a few days. You could try taking an over the counter painkiller containing Paracetamol with the Tramadol. A doctor told me that it’s safe to do and that Tramadol actually works better when taken with Paracetamol. the fatigue you mentioned when you stop taking it is likely to be at least partially due to the letdown you typically get when you suddenly stop taking it after your body has become used to it.
I'm not strong enough to work right now and would rather to go someone locally in the Atlanta area. I've tried Lyrica and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span>, but I really want to know what is wrong so I can fix it and not take drugs that just cover up the pain. I am not depressed and do not what to take an antidepressant but for some reason the doctors always want to go that route with me. I guess that don't have anything else to offer. Does anyone have any ideas of other things I should be tested for?
My Psychologist recommended me to see the Psychiatrist on duty at the facility since I was being prescribed Xanax and my insurance might cut my 20 maximum visits per year if I didn't see him. I made an appt and saw the Psychiatrist. My appointment lasted 13 minutes and he told me that he wouldn't refill my Xanax prescription since he believed it to be very addictive and wrote me a script for Effexor XR.
I went out and bought the 5htp and l-tyrosine only to find out that sense I do have SLE and am taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cymbalta</span> and remeron at night, I can not take them!!! oh well, People with sle have to be careful about this, I don't know if your lupus is the sle kind tho. sooooooooooo anyway take care and best wishes to you!
That's 10 - 16 pills daily, vastly exceeding the maximum recommended <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dosage</span>. I am currently detoxing CT (thanks to all those in the other threads with information and recommendations on how to undergo this process), and my last dose was about two and a half days ago. Suffering from all the usually goodies, with the "fatigue coupled with leg-twitching that won't let you rest" featured most prominently. But that isn't why I'm writing this post.
