I Am Taking Paxil For Emotional Swings, My Doctor Thinks I Should Switch To Cymbalta.

I Am Taking Paxil For Emotional Swings, My Doctor Thinks I Should Switch To Cymbalta.

I am not sure that paxil is helping me as I do have emotional down days -- it seems that my physical pain and my emotional pain go together.
Cymbalta has been suggested to me but I hesitate to switch and I am wondering how others have tolerated cymbalta and how you were afftected by side effects. Thanks in advance, June

@A MyFibroTeam Member I was on Cymbalta and I found that I was worse to the point that I went back to using Lyrica. My pain level was much higher and my mood was horrid with high anxiety. Although everyone is different and they metabolize the drugs differently so it may be good for you but remember it is your choice whether you take it or not so do your research on it check out reviews good and bad and make an informed decision.

I was taking Cymbalta and worked great for me for awile. I started hurting more and having suicidal thoughts. I was on it for about a year before all that happen though.

Research both meds and look at side effects. Man isn't always right.
