Hi, I cruz other forums more related to my particular challenges: Ulcerative Colitis, IBS, Chronic Pain, but, I have a doctor's appt tomarrow and was going to ask him for Cymbalta b/c I've heard from several people that it's good for chronic pain, which I suffer from almost daily. Buuut, tonight I was doing some on-line research and on drugs.com, it warns about taking Cymbalta with pain medications, which I take consistantly--funny thing is, the warning does not specify what the warning is! I also found on Reuters.com an article about how the manufacurer, overstated or misrepresented it's use in pain effectiveness. What to do, what to do? FYI: I do not suffer from clinical depression, although I do have some depressed mood related to my major medical conditions, so maybe it could help, but, on the other hand, if it doesn't help with pain management, I'd rather not b/c I'm on eight other meds as it is. My hope is to find someone here who takes Cymbalta and pain meds on a regular basis and if you have and problems with it, or anything else for that matter. Thanks for letting me cruz your forum.
