Hi Tracy...this is a link about taking Imitrex and Cymbalta together.  It is very technical but it basically states these drugs should not be mixed.  I think you should call your seems so many are ignornat of what these drug combo's can do.

Reach out and touch someone. If they don't touch you back it's because you still have brownie batter on your face.

Sometimes.... you have to wonder what they are thinking! When I was having Migraines the Imitrex would only work with a muscle relaxant. If they didn't get me both I would just keep rebounding.. I've never been on Cymbalta though.. speaking of.. have to go fix my profile.. meds changed!!

Hello. I also suffer from migraines. I am doing fairly well with Neurotin 600mg three times a day. I take Imitrex and Phenegran on an as needed basis. My primary doctor, neuro, and pain doc all agreed that Neurotin would be a good choice. So far so good.
