So I finally got in an appointment with a cleveland clinic dr. Young, nice guy. I didn't have to rattle on about
my symptoms because he was aware of fibro. Only thing is he suggested trying Cymbalta, with the caveat if I had any issues with it, just call.
I've always been hesitant about
any med, but I've been struggling so much lately, I was ready for anything. I admit after he first dose, I felt way less moody and pain was lessened. I was even laughing at jokes this morning. I had side effects though of mild nausea and some dizziness, sleepiness, which I am no fan of.
I've read now that coming off of Cymbalta is horrendous, and side effects are bad, although often dissipate. I've been extremely depressed some days, irritable, and anxious, (even about
stupid little things like going out to the grocery store), and I really need a boost. And a cottage by the sea isn't happening anytime soon.
Any thoughts about
Cymbalta from anyone?
