Carmen when I started Cybalta 30mg, Dec.15th last, it took 6 days and my pain was half of what it was. Now it's I'm guessing at 20% of what it was. Me and my Dr.are both thrilled. If this keeps up I'm going to go back to work but thats in the future, right now I'm just enjoying hours and hours even days of no pain. I've noticed no side effects so far. Rob
