he offered me about a hundred options. many won't work ... as I have had bad experiences with amitryptiline (sp!?), topomax, neurontin, etc. he suggested Cymbalta ... since I clearly need something that works on depression too. i'm supposed to start it tomorrow. wow, that's pricey stuff, huh?!?! thank goodness I finally have insurance!!!
my aunt takes cymbalta for depression and pain associated with diabetes, and she said that she can not imagine life without it. dr said i don't need blood tests to monitor it like i would with lyrica, and that lots of people have great results from it. i'm supposed to check back in in a month.
let's hope it works!
