Cymbalta
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just started Cymbalta 30mg tonight. What are your experiences with it ? I've heard stories about bad side effects...hoping for the best!

I've taken Cymbalta for about ten years and it has worked well with no side effects. The only drug I had trouble with was Remeron...gained 40# in one month. I think that hurt me more than the pain. I've always battled my weight and finally had it under control for five years. I'm 5'1 and weighed 100#. Now I can't seem to do anything to lose it.

I also take the generic. I love it. Without it I'm a mess. The only problem i have is dry mouth.

If I miss one dose,I get the brain zaps. Ask your Dr about weaning you off
