I am just writing some observations about
the 2 different Rx for my MDD and anxiety-and again we all are unique with unique perspectives plus I am not doc or pharma agent.
While on Cymbalta -I had stomach issues but my crying stopped.I had to eat fiber and walk or I was always feeling like a balloon.
My body pain was ok not a miracle job in that area,but had hang over after sleep and flt sleepy whole day.
Had frequent headaches and nightmares anytime I slept.
Now guess what my refills were over and no med for a week.I have no doc or insurance.SO pvt pay is my option..
I know its stupid but after horrible one week I found 14 pills of Pristiq in my drawer ,a leftover sample doc sent me off with some time ago.
I just took 1 pill so far and wow ----no nightmares.
Its too early to say ...I know what i am doing is not ok .
But my doc was forgetful and never looked at notes and just prescribes me Cymbalta before saying goodbye forever.
I was thinking because of fibro ....but perplexed.
I am currently looking for doc but will stick with Pristiq (brand name) ....hopefully can get sampes and generic in long run.
Its too early to say anything but no hangovers or sleepy next day kinda feeling.
looks like Cymbalta is not in my system anymore.
Even after stopping Cymbalta(generic) ---had extreme nightmares to a point I was scared to even sleep.
I will keep this post updates as to it can help ppl like me floating between meds and don't know what to do.
I am not a doc or a nurse so plz consult them always what's best for you.
I am planning to stop magnesium too as it can give me nightmares too.
My rant is so ,long ,thanks for reading/
