Cymbalta and vitamin d

Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta and vitamin d


177382 tn?1253044740 These medicines are thought to work by increasing the activity of chemicals called serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. Where both Paxil and Cymbalta work on Serotonin the Cymbalta works on Norepinephrine which is the chemical that helps with pain sensation in the body. Since you had a problem with serotonin, just like I do, ask your doctor about Wellbutrin. This medicine focuses on Norepinephrine and dopamine which is an energy chemical.
Avatar f tn From web md (depression guide diet recovery) website: "6. Get plenty of vitamin D Vitamin D increases levels of serotonin in the brain. Researchers, though, are unsure how much vitamin D is ideal. There are individual differences based on where you live, the time of year, your skin type, and your level of sun exposure.
Avatar f tn Good luck to you and let me know how you make out. Do you also have arthritis? or just Fibro? Fibro is muscle Arthritis is joint and Vitamin D pain is Bone pain. It all hurts, no doubt about it. Please let me know.
Avatar n tn I have a low vitamin D and a high vitamin D 1,25 hydroxy --- due to vitamin D dysregulation (I have CFS). I'm now on a research protocol (although the medications are not research meds) that is able to kill the bacteria in my tissues and due to cell wall deficiency. The name of the protocol is the Marshall Protocol if you would like to check it out via google.
16923519 tn?1452423391 I went to many different doctors, at the end, an internist discovered I had vitamin d deficiency at 11, and my PTH came at 155 (due to my severe vitamin d deficiency) I am on 8.000 ui per week, this is my 4th week. I thought it would take time, of course, but instead of feeling better, I'm feeling worse. The burning is worse, the pain in my arms and joints is worse. I am absolutely desperate. I have seen another two neurologists and they tell me everything is in my head or I have anxiety...
Avatar f tn Any ideas on what might work well as a switcheroo from this med? I have recently started taking Vitamin D supplements, as I live in a very cloudy state and I always feel so, so much better when it's sunny and I think this could be a factor. I actually have been feeling a bit better since taking it (I've been taking it for about 3 weeks now), but still not feeling the way I want to. Exercise helps me HUGE, but I have NO motivation and get bored/lose focus within minutes.
11197441 tn?1416129074 I missed one and could not get another till the beginning of this month. So I been without Cymbalta for a couple weeks before I finally got to see my Dr. Again, he actually asked if I wanted to get back.on it. Don't get me wrong, for the first week on Cymbalta I felt awesome! I wasn't brain foggy, i didn't sleep too much and I got stuff done.
Avatar f tn But I take 1000 mg of Vitamin C, Folic Acid, B12, adrenal support, and a multi-vitamin. I do separate the thyroid hormone and supplements by 4 hours and take Armour on an empty stomach. Thoughts?
501663 tn?1238381313 He wanted to treat me with Cymbalta. I made some big changes after this and fired him and the rhumy and now have a wonderful Rhuym in Indianapolis 45 min away and it is worth the drive, First he informed me that I was anemic, My Crp was high and that my Sed rate is high for a reason. Last week he informed me that I have a very bad Vitamin D deficiency that is causing all my pain. My level is 13.
Avatar f tn I've been on pretty well every anti-d on the market, had anticonvulsants and even lithium in the doc's desire to boost the anti-d's, and after the last two assessments by shrinks, the consensus was "treatment-resistant major depression". Of course, this phrase is BigPharma-speak for "Our chemicals don't work on this guy." It happens.
5142668 tn?1364234345 Hi, I was recently put on cymbalta, flexeril, mobic, and vitamin D. Cymbalta is for fibro pain, flexeril for the muscle spasms, mobic for stiffness, and vitamin D once a week because it was low. I have experienced shaking in my arms and legs as well. Mine typically shake when I get done using the muscles. For example, I went shopping for some new sheets. I picked my sheets out and decided to browse around for a little bit.
Avatar f tn 8 pills q wk. Also, values of Vitamin D are very low and am taking those qwk. Folic Acid is taken every day. Prednisone was added to my dismay. Cymbalta 60 mg. qd. Amitriptyline 150 mg. qhs, Requip .05mg. X2 qhs.
9246447 tn?1402600619 I am sure it could be many things, but you might want to get tested for Celiac disease and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Are you anemic? I would suggest taking magnesium 500 mg every morning and 400 mg of calcium with 2000 IU of vitamin D at night for your chronic pain.
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 I was diagnosed with lupus in 12/08. I take plaquenil, vitamin d and recently started taking cymbalta for depression and xanax for anxiety. I also take thyroid medication. I've gained 20 lbs in the last 6 months and cant lose the weight. I plan on starting the hcg drops diet- but i'm worried it's too much medication. has anyone out there tried this diet?
Avatar f tn Low levelsof vitamin and minerals can cause twitching and dizziness....check the vit B12 and D...calcium, magnessium and potassium. To be dx'd with fibro u need to have 11 of 18 tender points....if not u do not have fibro.
Avatar f tn 2 x's a day and Gabapentin 300 mg. 3 x's a day and gabapentin 100 mg. at bedtime. My cymbalta and gabapentin made my cholesterol worse. From 220 it went to 311 total cholesterol. Head injury car wreck that is why I need the meds. PTSD, post concussion syndrome and depression. I just had the berkley tests done and they said i have 9p21 genotype. My father and grandmother both had strokes. They were clearing out my fathers carotid artery and he had a stroke after that in intensive care.
Avatar f tn I'm not surprised to hear about your low vitamin D level. Dr. Nancy G. Klimas, a noted immunologist and world leader in ME/CFS/FM and Gulf War Syndrome says this about vitamin D, "low vitamin D is a frequent finding even in my sunshine state – Florida - and vitamin D is important to immune health. But I don't now if it was there to begin with or is a consequence of the illness." (source link below). I have mixed feelings on vitamin D.

Avatar n tn There is the standard vitamin D test and then the D 1,25. What is very interesting is that all of the people who are very ill and on the MP, all happen to have high vitamin D levels and many people with CFS, also have osteopenia. One member has it and she is only 23 years old !
1171003 tn?1267075703 If you have not had it checked have your B12, thyroid, and Vitamin D levels checked. We all need Vitamin D. I saw a doctor years ago who believe a low dose thyroid medication improved energy and helped pain in FM people. I've taken a low dose thyroid medication since. Most recently I switched to an Iodine supplement. It's really helped me. With all of this check side effects of any supplements and I am not a doctor I just lived very much like you.
Avatar n tn session), and it has perhaps helped me more than i know , but it does not necessarily prevent p.n. Unfortunately. I'll look into the emu cream and maitake-d-fraction, which I believe a friend of mine takes on her naturopath's recommendation. Thanks for those two tips. Where does your interest in ovarian cancer come from?
401095 tn?1351395370 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.), you need to be watchful for increased blood pressure, headaches, or insomnia. These side effects are indications that an excessive stimulation of the nervous system has occurred.
Avatar f tn Yes, I already checked my vitamin D levels and they are ok. I checked it last year as part of my check ups for my osteoporosis medical condition.
Avatar m tn Well it still never touched my pain and then I got pains in my chest and extremely dry mouth and throat and felt a lump in my throat. So i called him the next day and told the nurse what i felt and that it still doesn't work and I can't take the Lyrica. She talked to the Dr and she called me back and said he was writing me a script for Tramadol. I've had Tramadol before a while back before I even knew what was going on with me.
Avatar f tn Also, hypothyroid patients are frequently too low in the range for Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin. This is related to low stomach acid and poor absorption of vitamins and nutrients. D should be 55-60, B12 in the very upper end of the range, and ferritin should be 70 minimum. You need to get the D tested and then supplement as needed for all three of these to optimize.
Avatar m tn I know that sounds crazy and didnt believe that but I started changing my diet and adding b12, flax seed, vitamin d, magnesium, calcium, and I take a really good multivitamin. It is important. Try to really work on your nutrition and exercise, along with your meds. Try to get off of alprazolam only if you can. Also have your blood levels checked to make sure they are not low. Lastly, do t panic. Stress will make all of your body systems malfunction causing more problems.
Avatar m tn also rule out thyroid, b12, vitamin d defficiency, pinched nerves.
Avatar n tn Had to stop that and started me on another medication that caused my acid reflux and asthma to act up. Then she put me on Neutron, cymbalta, amitriptyline, vitamin d. Nothing helped the pain. She slowing increased the Neutron until I ended up taking 3 capsules 3 times a day. The only thing that has improved is the touch pain I had. The touch pain had gotten so bad I couldn't wear a bra or have my clothing touch my forearms or ankles (I know weird). She refuses to give me pain meds.
