Advice & Tips: When I saw my phychiatrist on May 23, 2013 he told me to divide my dose and take 30mg in the morning and 60mg with my night-time medicine. This is supposed to help my fatigue. I still have not felt any different. I am exhausted all the time and I do not think it is from the pain meds that I take. I was tired before I started taking those meds. I have lost my spark!

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: I take quite a high dose of the Cymbalta and I have to help it out with Abilify so I am not sure exactly how good the Cymbalta really is. It has been approved by the FDA to help with FM pain so it was a good choice that my doctor had made years before the FDA made the announcement. I still feel like I am on the edge of my seat alot of the time and I also take Visteril when needed.
