Hey CLT Hi this is Kitt. I take cymbalta and my pdoc cranked me up to 120mgs per day. I craved carbos and was going through boxes of cheerios like you would not believe. I gain 10 lbs and I was eating already before the med was started. I talked to Pdoc and insisted on going down to 60 mgs of the Cymbalta which has made a huge difference in the cravings.
Exercise is good but I agree, talk with your pdoc as a huge weight gain is not healthy and IMHO it is depressing too.Hope you get this sorted out. Welcome to HealingWell. Please stick with us.
Many many thanks for the replies and advice. I wonder if drugs impact people differently as they age? Anyway, I have an appt with the doc on Monday evening, and I'm planning on just listing symptoms as is and seeing what he says. I'm very open to trying other stuff. Anything that works!! If I do switch, should be an interesting time doing so!
