I had no luck with Darvon at all. It made me feel awful and I was taking it more often than I take Tramadol. I would have to get up during the night to take one because I was in so much pain. I can sleep through the night with Tramadol and only take like 3 a day. I have no clue why the Darvon did that. Maybe I reacted to something in it because when I came down from it, my pain felt so much worse. I called my doctor and he said that I can go ahead and take Tramadol with Cymbalta...that I am not on enough to cause serotnin syndrome. He said that he is not saying that it can't happen but that it is rare. I guess I will look up the symptoms again and just be aware of my body. I did take Tramdol with Savella and had no problems with it. I made sure to take the Savella hours after I took the Tramadol and I will do the same with the Cymbalta. I am still pretty scared but I have to do something. This muscle pain is horrible. Fibro is what's keeping me in bed. I can tell the difference now between Fibro and RA. With RA, I am stiff when I first get up, but once I move around, I am okay. With Fibro, I can barely walk most of the time. I still don't understand why I have it so much worse than others but I guess I just have to deal with what I've been given.

 I take 4  50mg Tramadol a day and Cymbalta 60mg. I have not have any problems with the combination. I don't like the Cymbalta because it doesn't seem to work for me but they are at the moment running test for RA and PSA so that may be the reason why. I am the opposite..whatever else is going on with me hurts and last all day. My fibro just depends on how much I've overdone and if my body is reacting to the pain in a crazy way. I hope this helps some. Heather
