I wondered how other people are doing on Cymbalta? I'm doing OK, but would like to get off meds. I understand thats hard to do. Sometimes I think take the meds if their working. I'm 81 and going through a lot of physical problems. Best to all. Dee turn

Hi Dee,

I hope that the cymbalta works for you. It is a hard medication to get off of but it can be done if needed. We have many people on cymbalta, some it helps, and some it doesn't. But I am sure that they will share some techniques for getting off of it if need be. You sound great for 81. I hope that when I am that age, that I sound as good as you. I am 52 right now. Feel old, but told I am young yet. lol... By older people of course. lol...

If you want to share your physical problems, please do. Know that we are all here for you.

Take care, I hope that you are having a good day.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks for the reply's. My physical problems are that I had a lymphectomy and they removed 19 lymph nodes. It's caused some problems with my left arm. I'm getting theraphy and wearing a sleeve. I also have macular degeneration and I'm getting injections for that. Their bummer's, but eveything else is going great!! Thanks again, Dee
