I was only taking 30mgs. I couldn't get past the sickness to get it up to 60. I am thinkin it's to controlled release part of it. I my stomache can't handle that part of any meds. My PCP gave it to me for nerve pain. When I was in there my blood pressure was elevated from the pain. My old neuro had me on a combo of things. I did take prozac, relafin, and lortabs. It worked for me, but the nurse practioner wanted me to try this. She didn't want to give me everything that I was on. I guess it really doesn't matter anymore cuz my insurance won't pay for Cymbalta. I just found this out this morning.
I do have my spinal tap scheduled for tomorrow too. I have to go to the hospital tomorrow afternoon and my husband is suppose to pick me up when he gets done at work. The only saving grace is that my new neuro gave me a Valuim to take before my procedure so that I am not so nervous when I get in there.
Love many, trust few, always paddle your own canoe!
