cymbalta

Avatar n tn Attention anyone taking Cymbalta...PLEASE read about the side effects and the horrible withdrawl symptoms. It turned me into a zoombie then it took over a year to withdraw from. It is worse than anything I have ever experienced in my whole life. I am not going to be a guinea pig for any more of these new drugs, I'll just stick with vicodin.
Avatar f tn After the first 10 months, of Paxil, I gained 55lbs (while still having 9 left to lose from my pregnancy). Turns out it was the meds so they took me off. With in three days I was in hell. Awful, vivid, lucid nightmares I couldn't wake myself from. The type where I was witnessing gross murders and mutilations and many times committing them myself. Nausea, brain zaps, tremors, fatigue, cold sweats... you name it I had it. So they put me on Prozac.
1387847 tn?1291027722 she presribed me a 2mg dose of dizapam which im to take when needed which i feel isnt helping one bit. the constant stream of side effects is unbearable. cymbalta can cause brain and lung defects dont want to take no chances.
Avatar n tn Why not just stay on them and not suffer from withdrawals and possibly have your terrible effects of depression return? Are the side effects of being on these antidepressants that bad? His doctor lowered his doasage without telling him; he didn't know until he looked at the bottle that he picked up from the pharmacy... Clearly I'm no doc but the general idea of going off seems bad enough let alone going ahead and lowering his dosage without telling him... I suggested he switch doctors... .
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
667923 tn?1421466324 I just got off it and found no difference in my physical pain but it worked on my depression without to many side effects.
Avatar n tn So what many pharm companies do is create a registry and when a pg woman goes ona med, she goes on the registry. Any side effects she experiences while pg are reported to the registry and any issues with the baby after delivery should also be reported. Hopefully you can work with the above named professionals to find a solution that works for you and puts your baby at minimal risk.
Avatar f tn And if you do get pregnant and I hope you do you should know that Cymbalta had negative effects during pregnancy when given to animals. There have been no adequate studies in pregnant women. Cymbalta should be used during pregnancy only if the benefits outweigh the potential risks. Cymbalta appears in the breast milk of animals. It is unknown whether the drug appears in human breast milk. Therefore, it's recommended that you avoid breastfeeding while taking Cymbalta.
Avatar n tn I had cut down to a 12mg dose every 4-5 days without having physical side effects such as dizziness. However, I am becoming depressed and am having major anger issues. My question is...Are there any anti-anxiety/depression drugs that are generally considered safe during pregnancy? Everyone says "talk to your doctor" but I have only seen my doctor one time and that was for a general check up. At that time she told me that if the weaning didn't work I could switch to Lexapro.
Avatar m tn I have tried numerous meds, but am currently on Cymbalta and that has been the best with helping with HAs and with the least side effects. I tried Topomax and it gave me pretty severe depression. I will be trying to cut down my dosage (which is only 60mg as is) because I will obviously need to be off of it to get pregnant, but I still have HAs even on the 60mg. I will see my neurosurgeon and an MRI in early August as my yearly post op F/U.
Avatar f tn Do not take Cymbalta in my opinion. If you go off of it there's side effects and let me tell you it's worse than the the first trimester of pregnancy or any morning sickness you have ever had, plus brain zaps.
1697480 tn?1306787644 My internal gave me some Lunesta to try, and I have been very scared to take it for fear of weird side effects that I might have, but I broke down and took it last night just to see if it would help me, in which it kind of did. I didn't get to good sleep until about 2AM and I took it around 9PM. But I am going to try to take it over the next few days to see if it will work better as I go. Hi Sarah! Thank you so much! Looking forward to talking and sharing!
Avatar n tn I am 25 married only for a year and not really mentally prepared for a pregnancy, but my period is a week late and I just did a pregnancy test which can out negative.I have no other symptoms like nausea ets. but dono what to expect!! Its the holiday season and all labs are closed and I dont kwno how to handle this curosity!! Thanks for the usefull comments as they make me feel there are more people out there in my situation.
Avatar n tn Hence you will need to take lower dose of Cymbalta as the drug concentrations are expected to remain high due to slow metabolism.If the dose of Cymbalta is not adjusted well it can result in serious side effects such as orthostatic hypertension or hypertension or tremors or ataxia etc. However, your other doctors are right too. There is no drug interaction between them, and so even if you become pregnant, there is not going to be any additional harm due to drug interaction.
Avatar f tn I take a class c, Lithium for bi-polar. Its one if those issues were you have to outweigh the good and the bad. Im 37 weeks.Every appointment and ultrasound shes developing on track, my daughter will have to be monitored after shes born for 2 days though to make sure shes ok because it will be in her system as well. If you want to get off talk to your dr. about weaning off of it and switch to something safer?
Avatar f tn Sometimes when you try to go back on the same antidepressant you will not have the same effect or different effects. Cymbalta gave me terrible nausea. It's kind of in it's own class of meds and does'nt help with anxiety like a lot of other antidepressants do. If your stressed that can throw your period off. You can always see your Dr for a blood test to see if you may be pregnant. Let us know how it turns out and take care.
Avatar f tn I am on day 16 of taking 50mg sertraline after switching from cymbalta to try and find a saferdrug to try for pregnancy. Week one I was emotional but that settled down and week two was manageable and i felt generally calmer. However by day 14 anxiety smptoms worsened and i am feeling flushed in the face and tingly in arms and waking early feeling unable to cope with nerves and sweating. Should I stick it out?
Avatar n tn I recently started back on that antidepressant and am wondering if my system is just screwed up because of all the side effects accompanied with the drug (none of which are reported to be late or missed period). I have tried to make an appointment with my GYN but the office hasn't called me back yet.

1360928 tn?1280207143 It's hard to say I think a lot of times people report side effects like that that are..not made up exactly but they're not as bad as the posters think they are (i have a friend that no matter what drug she takes no matter what dosage...she will have every single bizarre or severe side effect on the list just because that's the type of personality she has).

Avatar m tn so that will stay and I am starting to take folic acid and multivitamins.. what do you think of cymbalta? how to get off? there are side effects to just quitting.. but I will do that cold turkey if needed.. I hope the monistat didnt hurt anything either.. again.. until I know forsure either way..
Avatar n tn One of the best things I ever did was attend a group for people with depression. As for the paxil, the side effects may wear off after a little time. It may be beneficial to give it a little more time to see if the spaced out feeling is a side effect that will subside with time. However, if it is making you feel uncomfortable or affecting your ability to do day-to-day activities, it is worth talking with your doctor about it.
Avatar f tn It's a newer anti-depressant and to my knowledge it is not thought to be addictive and side effects are better tolerated than with some of the other anti-depressants on the market. Like one of the other posters said, it's not a miracle drug, but can certainly help. It's great that your doctor is so supportive! Some doctors i've met and worked with are asseholes! Parden my language and I hope i don't get kicked off of medhelp for using a curse word.
Avatar f tn at the age of 2yrs. My concern in taking this anti-depressant are the side effects. What do you guys think? Should I take it just to try and gain weight. She has tried prednisone to help me gain weight, that did not work, I did not even retain fluid on those.
Avatar f tn I hav't had ANY of those side effects. I was worried about the 'sugar' increase (possibly) but, it hasn't happened & high sugar runs in our family. The muscle jerks I was terrified of. My Father has Non-hogkins, which causes the tremors, but after being on the Abilify for many years that doesn't seem to apply either. I've not gained any lbs. except in show of the Depakote. I gained an embassingly huge amt. of weight while on Zyprexa, but lost it once that got out of my system!
Avatar n tn I am 37 yrs. old. My Dr. has prescribed nearly all the anitdepressants out there. I had bad side-effects with each, jaw tightening, teeth grinding, more headaches, insomnia, more anxiety, more tense and agitated (which is not like me)-- Prozac did help the monthly period oddly enough! But I could not tolerate side effects. Recently tried Cymbalta for it's so called 'pain' inhibitors--- I felt suicidal, a zombie, extremely lethargic-- yet felt wired at the same time.
Avatar n tn Jeff- It sounds like you do need Klonopin and if it helps you with your symptoms without creating other problems or side-effects, then you are doing as well as you can and you should continue with your treatment and try to live as normal a life as possible. DO NOT SUDDENLY STOP TAKING IT. It is somewhat discouraging that we still live in a fairly primitive time as far as psychopharmacology is concerned; mind you we have come a long way but there is still a very long way to go.
Avatar n tn This reflected in my real life with the feeling I could accomplish anything. The problem was, I was also taking clomipromine for ocd. The side effects were so bad, including tremors, forgetfulness, studdering and a LOT of weight gain, I ended up just quitting everything. I am thinking about going back on Paxil, but I haven't lost the weight from the first time and don't want to gain anymore. Does anyone know if the paxil causes weight gain? Any input will be highly appreciated.
