I havent been around as much as I would like nor have I gotten to reply so some of the posts that I wanted too... but I have been really sick lately.
After contacting my doctor about
the bad side effects from Cymbalta and decided to switch... I have been really sick and not able to hold anything down. From last Sunday until Monday(yesterday) I hadnt eaten a single thing. So, yesterday I felt better and figured I could start eating again. Wrong. Now I am experiencing withdrawal which has made me not only sick AGAIN... but even more sick.
So, I have been in bed, not able to sleep... nor being able to eat, and throwing up. Standing up makes me feel really dizzy. And I feel really hot and flushed all the time. But on the outside, Im cold! For sure, I do NOT feel good at all.
I missed my volunteer duties last week at the hospital because I had been throwing up, and I REALLY want to go tomorrow but Im not sure if I will be able too, giving how I have felt today. But, I really want to go see all of my volunteer friends. And I really want to get out of the house! Im so bummed because I have been sick for a few weeks now and all my friends keep wanting do hang out and I cant. I havent been able to do anything and its very frustrating feeling sick all the time.
Anyways, just wanted to update you guys on my med switch... I plan on starting the Prozac most likely Thursday and will let you guys know how it goes. I will be fine, as long as it does NOT cause me to be sick like the Cymbalta! Wish me luck! I hope everyone is doing good and I hope to be around more soon! Take Care
