I use it along with vistaril. The combination helps

I was given a script for it but I havent and dont plan on using it. I think the side effects far outweigh the benefits of this drug, and many like it. I am trying desperately to use mind over matter. Ours minds are much stronger than we think and we can control this. I've done it before, I'm hoping I can get a grip on me.

Yes. Cymbalta also helps with pain. I think it is a great med for depression and highly recommend.

I was on Cymbalta for almost 4 yrs, & the therapist I was seeing suggested I switch to Lexapro, along with Wellbutrin that I was already taking. I weaned off the Cymbalta very slowly as instructed, but went through horrific withdrawal symptoms- crying out of control, severely depressed, problems sleeping, the shakes, and wondering if this is what a drug addict feels when trying to get off drugs. I found a group online called “Cymbalta Hurts” & couldn’t believe how many people had become addicted & weren’t able to get off of it. It took me a good 6 months, and fortunately I didn’t have lingering side effects. Many others haven’t been so lucky.
