Can anyone tell me a little about Cymbal ta please? In all the years I've had Fibro and been on multiple meds I've never been given Cymbalta, I have seen so many on this group mention this med and I'm very curious. Thanks in advance

I have been on Cymbalta for several years and it has eliminated the surface pain I used to suffer with. I couldn’t bear to be touched before even by myself. Going for massage had been out of the question. I still have painful pressure points.

Brenda, Cymbalta is the main go to drug for me as well. Of course I have bad times and days and even weeks but for the most part I have felt so much better past couple years. Yes, had side effects at first but not as sever as other things have tried, and yes for 7 years tried all! grr I worked through it and built up to 120mg a day. That's probably way to much for most but my phychiatrist said she willing to try. I have a case worker at the Mental health facility that I go see about 3 times a month, my therapist that see 1 and 2 times a month, the every 6 months I see the True phychiatrist every 6 months for the meds but sometimes more often. I don't even talk about my problems really like you think and see on tv and stuff. I go talk to them like there my family and sometimes stay an hour and never even talked about anything with me but them or friends. Seeing these professional has been the most important thing I have done for my mental and physical Health. I didn't really feel depressed as one would think, but by doing this and getting out of my head has helped with my well being, but for some reason it heaps with my pain. I try to share what I went through and going through because for some reason it helps to get out of your own mind and think of others and maybe some magical reason I get out of self and makes me better and I mean physically better. Some of mioght say I have talked and talked and tried it all, but I am saying to try this method even if not with dr's. Until I noticed it was working wasn't sure what it was, but By luck I found out my young age when went to AA for abuse this was how it worked as well. I don't go to meeting and such anymore and definitely don't drink but this same plan works for my pain. It's getting out of my mind and thinking and helping of others and the magic happens. Alchoholics have done for years for drinking but similar thinking of helping others helps the pain, yes the physical pain. Wow just noticed wrote a lot, whoops. Writing also gets me out of my head as well. Smiles to all of you suffering

I have been on it 15 years and upped the dosage - it takes awhile to get used to it but for me it is worth it - it takes the suicide thoughts to a bare minimum and helps with the pain
