It's good to see you too! How are you feeling? I read the last update and responded, hope that you got it.
I tried Cymbalta twice and it didn't do anything for me, and the side effects were really bad for me as well. It was one of the three meds that I tried that I just couldn't deal with the side effects of.
I know that it works really well for some people and others, not so well, if at all. It is like every other medication out there, it will work fantastically well for one and for the next person, it's a bust.
Ah well, I just wanted those of us here , who take it to see the article since it has important information that we all need to know if we're taking it or considering taking it.
I know of one woman that took over a year with tiny decreases in dosage to get off it, she had some pretty horrendous side effects , but so many others have none. I think though that the liver concerns really need to be kept watch of.
Anyway, hope this finds everyone having a decent day.

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
