Well, this is interesting. I am taking both Lyrica and Cymbalta. I take Lyrica 100mg am, 50mg pm, and Cymbalta 60mg am, 30mg pm. I've been taking both for about
three months. So far, I'm not getting much relief from either. Can't really say that I've experienced any negative side effects, though. My weight is fluctutating a little, but that just be normal, nothing major. In addition to my migraines, I'm also taking the Cymbalta and Lyrica for Depression/Panic and Anxiety disorder, as well as for chronic pain from a very bad back and knees. I guess I'll try these for a little longer, since my doctors don't seem to have anything else waiting to try. The real bummer is that they are so expensive. Even with insurance, my co-pays are awful with these two meds, and I have several other meds I have to pay for every month too. I don't even go through my insurance for my abortive (STADOL NASAL SPRAY) because they will only pay for less than half of the refills I need to control my headaches. I've been through every doctor and clinic in my area, and I still have to get an emergency pain shot about
once a week. Luckily, I'm going to the Neurological Institute of Southwest VA at the end of the month, so maybe I'll get some new insight into this nightmare.
Good luck with the meds, and let me know how you guys are doing.
