Cymbalta and diet pills

Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta and diet pills


Avatar f tn Cymbalta 3 yrs ago I went thru treatment for opiate withdrawal after many years of self prescribed pain relief. I had to wait 24hrs and then I was put on suboxone for withdrawal and drug cravings and Cymbalta for pain management and depression. (I have been on antidepressants for 30yrs.) Anyway, this combination has been a miracle for me as my pain has been completely manageable with OTC if needed, have had no urge to use, nor any depression issues.
Avatar m tn My question for all those out there is does the bloating and dizzy head ever stop? I take Lyrica and Cymbalta. The lyrica was added a week ago and It has helped the pain so much I don't want to stop it . My doctors said they can be taken together.
Avatar f tn my pain level is alright at the moment and I don't feel like a big knot. My plan was to quit taking the pain meds and try the diet and exercise I'm doing on my weight loss journey. I've been in no condition the past several days to get on the treadmill, but I'm getting away for a few days and just relax. I'm soooo looking forward to the big jetted tub at the hotel. Calgon, take me away! I'm hoping by Monday, I'll feel good enough to start exercising.
Avatar n tn The pain made it hard to function, I was irritable and most nights I couldn’t sleep. I was on a steady diet of Advil and Tylenol. I finally broke down and got acupuncture and felt much better. My acupuncturist is in NJ here is his info. Give it a try it really helped me.
Avatar n tn I know alot of people are suffering from them and I want to let you know I read an article in my paper about leg cramps and cholestrol pills. Now I have been on provachal for 3 years and really did not think that it was the cause of my muscle spasms. yet I figured I had nothing to lose to try not taking them for a couple of weeks. I must tell you that after 5 days my spasms went down to 1 in the next 5 nights. It has been like a miracle.
384276 tn?1199996404 Each day now is and downs. And the problem is that I can't go off the diet pill because they are afraid I will have seizures , so I am slowly weaning myself off since mid Dec. I feel like I am going crazy...sometimes I can't even move. Is there a way to speed this process up?
182493 tn?1348056515 For the last 4 years I’ve been using nutrition—Intravenous and oral—to rebuild and repair the biochemistry pathways in the body and mind. Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals.
Avatar f tn You will have to recognize it for what it is- caused by the pills, and it will go away. I think you should call your doctor. Have you talked to a professional? You do not have to do this alone, there are many options for you if you do not think that you can handle this. I would rather you continue taking the pills, in a responcible fashion, until you can put a good support system in place. Your doctor can assist you in adjusting medication and perhaps adding something else.
Avatar m tn I went on the slimfast diet for a few months for a special occasion and lost 17lbs. But you cannot stay on that diet for ever. It obviously worked for me. Now I am back on my normal diet (quite healthy, no junk food) I am putting on weight again.
401095 tn?1351395370 Recent studies have suggested that lowering plasma cholesterol levels by diet and medications increases suicide, homicide, and depression. The quantity and type of dietary fats consumed influence serum lipid levels and alter the biophysical and biochemical properties of cell membranes. Dietary advice to lower cholesterol levels tends to increase the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 and decreases the level of the essential omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexanoic acid.
Avatar f tn Find the healthy natural alternative to fix this by eating a alkaline diet and get rid of heavy metals in the body. Research and watch videos on Major auto-hemotherapy, Prolozone and Dr.
Avatar n tn I eventually got terrible nerve pain in addition to joint and muscle pain and have to go to pain doctor. Cymbalta stopped restless legs and also take a prescription nsaid and opioids. Addiction isn't a problem and all the headlines and new laws are political and powered by drug companies. I also get epidurals. Some back disk damage too, not from EBV. I also take adderall or can't function.
Avatar f tn Now days, I don't take 18 pills a day anymore; I take one pill at night and medical cannabis. I barely have migraines or FMS sx anymore. I still have to be careful, remember to takes breaks, don't do too much stuff at once. For the most part they are under control.
Avatar n tn Has anyone successfully weaned off Effexor and onto either Cymbalta or Prozac? Thank you for your time and attention to anyone who reads this. I have felt so alone until I started reading these forums and I truly feel for anyone suffering the way I have with anxiety and depression and health worries. They can be truly debilitating and can take all of the joy out of life.
1171003 tn?1267075703 My theory is that I am actually not depressed, that I am situationally frustrated, so increasing or decreasing any hormone in my brain is not going to be a fix. I have tried Effexor, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, and one that starts with a Z. Each and every one made me cry more, lash out at people, and one time threaten to kill myself. When I stopped the meds, I didn't have those feelings!
Avatar n tn See a nutritionist to correct the imbalances in your diet and see a trainer to be sure you are moving correctly. For muscle pain from overuse, take rest and take acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Apply ice for the first 24 - 72 hours of exercise to reduce pain and inflammation. After that, heat often feels more soothing. Gentle stretching exercises after a long rest period are also helpful. Massage helps a lot.
Avatar n tn I did some research and Metformin is indeed used for weightloss and it is recommended that the pills be taken about 10-15 minutes before eating. It reduces hunger pains as well as makes you feel full due to the expansion of the tablets. I take 2000 mgs. a day. I have lost 44 pounds and counting. I have also changed some of my eating habits, but unfortunately, I am having a hard time giving up the carbohydrates.
Avatar n tn More than i can even name here. Nothing helped and I think the only reason cymbalta helps is because i sleep a little better and have more energy to push the headache and ringing away. Ideas anyone?
1094370 tn?1317138425 I contacted my doctor and he said that the Cymbalta is most likely not the culprit here because it started while not on the drug.... I was on it a year prior with no issues... I restarted the Cymbalta about two or three months ago because I could not handle the anxiety. I stayed on 20 mg and then upped it to 30 mg about a week ago. My anxiety has been overwhelming to say the least and some days I just cannot even come to work because of it. Oh...I'm going through menopause too....
698356 tn?1240154327 It nutralizes the PH - but doesn't take away the acid for digestion that we need. I started a diet change and eliminated all flour and sugar. I started consuming more apples (pectin) also. I am not a fan of them - but in the course of balancing -- the old rule applies - " An apple a day - keeps the doctor away!" I consumed a ton of yogurt and on top of that took probiotics ( Pearls) in between.
Avatar n tn I know that every person acts different on pills and all the side effects vary from person to person, but this pill wacked me out. I have never had any problems before and have been on a few different kinds. I am 39 yrs old and got back on the pill do to bad PMS. My Dr. recommended this one because of my age. I started having anxiety and then panic attacks when I was driving on the freeway, then they started to come in town too.
Avatar n tn now i'm craving hydros so bad!!!!!!!!! its 6 a.m. and i am trying to get these stupid ******* pills and i have taking xantax just so i can feel some type of feelings. im drinking again and now i feel my life is going back to ****. I was even studying computer science. now i feel like i am a nobody loser. i dont know what to do. i have had a horrible childhood. It seems like it never leaves me alone. my dad is a homeless loser. its seems like im destined to be a druggy. anyone have advice?
Avatar n tn I was already on Wellbutrin 150 mg twice a day and a diet, by the way,and struggling with depression over my weight. Two years later, I am at 200 mg per day of Topomax, headache free with no change in the flavor that I can apprciate. I am also wearing a size 6 working to a size 4. One caution. If you have anorexic tendencies, as I do, be very careful. I forget to eat, don't want to eat, strive for that smaller size, although everyone tells me that that is enough weight loss.
Avatar n tn I think I need another doctor's opinion as the pain is constant and I have to constantly take pain pills and even then the pain is never gone. I feel the doctor does not beleive me and I do not know what to do ....I hurt all the time. Thanks to anyone who might have a suggestion.
Avatar m tn BUT if they know in advance you were a past addict and that you're leary of pills, hopefully, no matter who they are, they will start you out slow and see what works for you. I know during my addiction I went to a psych dr. who just shoved pills at me and I didn't know if I was coming or going. AFTER being sober for a couple of years I went to a different psych dr.
Avatar n tn I've read a lot about this on the internet, and one thing that I found was that the redness may be a symptom of Candida, and can be alleviated by changing one's diet. Candida is basically yeast, and is formed when the body is overly acidic. The body needs to be a more alkaline pH. So, apparently eating less sugar, caffiene, and carbohydrates should help. So, do a google search for 'red hands and feet', and check out all the info that comes up. Good luck in your search for a cure...
Avatar n tn I have been on effexor for about a year-started on 75mg and now taking max dose of 225mg. I gained 59 lbs since being on the pills and now I am curious if this could be related. I am retaining a TON of water weight (pitting edema) I started the B6/B12 combo shots Monday and 3000mg of Vitamin C..I go today to get weighed. I did feel a burst of energy after the first shot, also difficulty sleeping...anyone have any of these experiences?
Avatar m tn She is taking Omega 3 fish oil, magnesium, lecithin, inositol, Vit C, and whey protein. A good diet and avoiding the obvious such as caffeine and alcohol are supposed to help too along with some exercise. It's of course important to rule out the physical possiblities and consulting doctors when in doubt. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn However I didnt get to see my doctor for over 2 weeks and I went nuts with anxiety, i actually thought I was hypoglycimic and follow the diet strictly. When I finally saw the doctor they did tons of blood tests and said I wasnt hypoglcimic, Sure enough the symtoms weny away. But I still get the head pressure and I still worry about it. It gets worse if Im stressed or even excited, like if Im laughing hard. But never a serious pain but just always prevelent. I also feel slightly dizzy.
