cymbalta

535882 tn?1396576685 Hi. What is gad? I can tell you that I tried Cymbalta and it made me so nauseous. I can't take it. I know lexapro has helped a lot of people with depression.
Avatar n tn I started Lexapro exactly 1 month ago. I started with 5mg and am now up to 10mg (for the past 3 weeks). My depression is gone (yay!), but my generalized anxiety problem has gone thru the roof. I feel like i'm going to explode - all day! My psych prescribed Cymbalta because of this. 30mg. I've taken it in the past and had pretty good results (I really should never have come off of it, but i had a false sense of security since i was feeling so great :)).
Avatar m tn Plus i have gained weight and cant loose it even though i watch what i eat. Anyway i have been reading about lexapro, or zoloft, or cymbalta and thinking about switching. Also have to note the sexual side effects of paxil like others not being able to "finish the job" is definitly a problem so im just trying to see if anyone using lexapro, zoloft, or cymbalta or something else if they have similar side effects?
Avatar m tn says it is more effective in treating pain with depression/anxiety than cymbalta but I cannot take it because it makes me throw up (it is similiar to Effexor and i throw up with Effexor too...despite being on it for months trying to "get used to it"). Good luck!!!
Avatar f tn I did not take Prozac, however I have been on Zoloft with minimal side effects. I noticed that most of them went away with time, but I do think they can numb your feelings a little bit, however, for me, the benefits clearly outweighed the costs. What does your husband think? I talked it over with my wife and she believes that it helps way more than it hurts the relationship :)....
Avatar n tn Am i having withdrawal from Lexapro or cymbalta at this point? Should I take a 10 mg of Lexapro to help with symptoms...or benadryl at night. I had no problems switching from 20 to 10 mg of lexapro...just a little weepy. I know my receptors just need to readjust but maybe thinking I can't take this much more. My doc was not very helpful on this matter. They just don't seem to really understand the withdrawal affects of these drugs.
772020 tn?1434994216 I also take 1mg of Clanozapam in the morning. As of today, I did not take the Cymbalta and am going to go back to the Lexapro tomorrow. Any thought?
Avatar f tn I have been off of lexapro for about a month now. I initially got off of it to switch to cymbalta. I took the cymbalta for three weeks and decided to stop all together. I am doing this while under a physicians care, but he doesn't seem to be interested in answering any of my questions. So, I was just wondering how long will this take? I feel terrible. I am dizzy and disoriented and weak and nausiated. I can barely get through my day to day routines.

Avatar f tn I take amitryptiline (may hav spelled wrong) and it was prescribed to me to help headaches and I think it has really helped. It may help with overall pain and help u sleep as well. Just a suggestion. It helps with the prevention of headaches so u don't get thm to start with. All the best to u. I've had lots of headaches it can really make life miserable--- I wish u all the best.
Avatar m tn Should I expect an increase in anxiety and depression? During the time I need to wait for the Cymbalta ti kick in (6 - 8 weeks) should I expect what I went through with the Lexapro? Meaning lots of ups and downs? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hello,I was wondering if anyone can tell me if antidepressants help after coming off of Methadone? If anyone has some suggestions I would be thankful. Thanks,Lasherslaugh.
Avatar f tn Your post is a little confusing -- did you taper off the Zoloft, or go off cold turkey, or switch to Lexapro, or are you on both Zoloft and Lexapro and now Cymbalta? Going off any of these meds abruptly, even if you switch to another, can trigger a withdrawal, which is why I'm asking.
1325193 tn?1450127436 I RECENTLY RAN OUT OF SAMPLES FROM MY DOC, MY INSURANCE JUST CHANGED, AND HE GAVE ME CYMBALTA, FOR BACK PAIN ALSO... I REALLY FEEL LIKE I HAVE MORE ENERGY AND LESS APPITITE, BUT AM STARTING TO FEEL AN UNDERLYING OF ANXIETY. WILL THIS GO AWAY? BY THE WAY I HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, AND WAS WONDERING IF THIS WAS OK TOO. JUST CURIOUS IF ANYONE ELSE HAS MADE THIS CHANGE.
Avatar f tn (1) Can I take Ambien CR with Cymbalta? (2) Are there any side effects for Ambien CR? Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn What will happen if I quit cold turkey with lexapro/cymbalt? I was taking lexapro 10mg for 5 months. Weight gain caused Md to change last week to Cymbalta 30 mg. I am recently divorced and was put on med during divorce. Divorce is final. I feel I wll be fine without meds. What happens if I cold turkey stop?
Avatar m tn Week 1: 10 mg Lexapro and 30 mg Cymbalta Week 2: 5 mg Lexapro and 60 mg Cymbalta Week 3 and on: 60 mg Cymbalta. Does that look standard? Should I expect any side effects? Thanks.

Avatar f tn i take cymbalta for chronic depression.
Avatar f tn My psychiatrist said that Cymbalta targets both seretonin and norephinephrine, so it is generally better for treating patients who have both depression and anxiety. I'm torn, though, because I'm taking Lexapro and while I don't feel great in terms of anxiety, I am not in a constant state of anxiety, like I was a few months ago. If I start Wellbutrin, it will be in addition to the Lexapro, so I feel like the only thing I would have to lose by trying it is some bad side effects.
723959 tn?1314744225 I have been on antidepressants before so I thought i would throw my two cents in here...I think the anxiety and mentally weird could be from both the things your missing but it's increased because you normally take the antidepressant daily and now your body is missing that as well. I know when I went off my rx for my ad I had 3 days of bad anxiety and crazy things going on in my head.
