Cymbalta

Cymbalta

I'd say it's the fibromyalgia as I suffer with extreme hot sweats waking up freezing cold as I am that wet head to foot, my hair will be drenched wet through and this has been going on for few years before being diagnosed with anything and before taking any medication ,
I have only been taking duloxotine For several weeks and I was the same before these x

Cymbalta has been my life saver. I read hundreds of reviews from people who are on Cymbalta. They all stated if you could go through the awful side effects for 4-6 weeks that it works wonders. I suffered through and one day I started to feel relief. It amazed me. It was no picnic going through the side effects but I would do it all again. It has been more than 5 years that I've taken been on and continue to work a full time job. Don't get me wrong, I have bad days but they are nothing compared to life without the meds.

I have read those articles, too. I have cold hands and feet and almost always have a low grade fever.

I have read that fibro affects our thermoregulatory (basically our temperature) system and that can cause us to be unable to tolerate heat or cold...for me I like the heat but cold makes me hurt so much worse. I too sweat a lot at times...it drips off my face. I am post menopausal so that is NOT the issue. Hugs!

Cymbalta dilated my pupils like an alien. Knocked me out for 14 hours. Gave me a rash. I'm taking Cyclobenzaprine now.
