  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: Potential unexpected benefits: improved incontinence Be VERY careful and take your time weening yourself off, after discussing with dr, of course! Cost kept increasing so I was considering going off of it. Finally, I was losing my insurance and I definitely could not afford to keep taking it! I thought it wasn't helping anymore but, after getting off of it, it appears it was helping after all, unless it is a coincidence that my health plummeted since!
Cost: $50-99 monthly

Advice & Tips: I felt Crappy before Cymbalta, and I feel evan worse from it! Now I not only have all the pain and uncomfortably symptoms, but my brain is also working so much slower! My choice to use Cymbalta was a Disparate attempt to regain evan a tiny bit of function and semblance of normalcy. It has been proving to be very LONG road to get back from the assault it had on my body, and it's almost ALL I can do to stay on the positive side of it. This was a BAD LESSON for me, and another GREAT Blow to my hope for healing! I suspect Seritonin Syndrome!
