Dosage: 90 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was told to take this medication in the morning instead of at night. After a day or two, I started having strange and weird dreams. They were vivid and scary at times. I would find myself falling out of bed. I fell out of bed several nights that week. I finally got tired of doing that and returned back to taking it at night. The bad dreams stopped and so did the falling out of bed.

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Depressed mood)

    Can’t tell (for Fibromyalgia)
  • Side Effects
    Mild (Dizziness and feeling faint)
  • Adherence
    Always

    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 120 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Cymbalta combined with Celebrex and gabapentin seem to keep my pain in a tolerable 3-4 on a 10 point scale. As I get older I am feeling more pain and I see physical medicine Dr. tomorrow.. will discuss options as to what is available if I {wear out} current medications. I've been on current meds for over 5 years and efficacy is decreasing. I pay $50.every three months since I turned 65.

Dosage: 120 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take my full daily dose in the morning, I find that cymbalta in combination with fluoxetine has helped me deal with chronic depression and helps somewhat with brain fog of fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue. I still stress over some things, family & finances mostly and stressors can override my medications at times. I think cymbalta does help reduce some nerve pain and that is a definite impact. I have been diagnosed with neuropathy and radiculopathy and I think cymbalta helps with some of the symptoms from this.
