  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
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.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
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.

Jul 21, 2010 (Started Sep 25, 2004)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
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.
