Hey, came over from chronic pain forum. Long story, but I have had chronic pain for years now, on a bunch of stuff, one being Prozac. I work in health care and some of the doctors I work with said they have been told (by pharma reps I found out later) that Cymbalta "works better" for pain relief. I asked my MD who manages my pain, and it's his specialty, if I should switch to Cymbalta and he told me that he keeps on hearing that Cymbalta works better on pain, but in his personal practice experience he doesn't see it--so I stayed on Prozac. My suggestion would be for you to explore this for yourself, the first question would be what evidence do you have that Cymbalta is better at pain relief and you don't just want studies paid for by the pharma company. The other thing, which is probably more important is, you have only had, although bad, pain in your leg for several days now? Or has it been longer? Anyway, you should really look into the source of the pain, did I see your psychiatrist want you to try cymbalta for the leg pain? Has any other doctor exam your leg issues? If you have questions, try catching me on the CP forum, I'm there most of the time.
