Hi everyone,
I have a question.  What is the medication that helps with anxiety/depression but also helps with fibro...Is it Cymbalta?
Thanks

Yes, Cymbalta is probably the one you're thinking of. I'm currently taking it, specifically for the Fibro, but I did find that it helped "lift" my mood a bit as well. I'm on 60mg, twice a day.
Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pelvic Pain, FAI, Reynauds, IBS, Interstitial Cystitis, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (Surgical Menopause and drug related), plus physically unable to vomit due to Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins...a joy for blood work or IV's)
Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT
Medications: Oxycontin, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Nortriptyline
Other: Vitamin D, Multi-Vitamin

Thank you.  I do suffer from anxiety and depression as well and I am going to talk to my psychiatrist about switching my meds from prozac to something else.

A couple other antidepressants that help with fibro are effexor and welbutrin. I guess it has to do with the seratonin in them. I hope that you are able to take cymbalta and that it works for you.

Best wishes,
