    It's official... but Cymbalta?

    Dar1536, I'm so glad the cymbalta is working for you! But for me it was much worse than just a little groggy. But then I am hypersensitive to just about any drug. I can take one little flexeril at 10 pm and the next day I'm out of it all day. Even though I am still experimenting with the dosage...

    What alternative treatments have you tried?

    I just ordered a little variety of things from a dispensary here. Gonna try a few different ratios of CBD/THC, some high CBD for days of work when I don't want any psychoactive effects, and some high THC for pain relief at night. See how it goes!

    Medication Question - How Much Do You Take If Any

    Right now I just take ibuprofen and Tylenol. My doctor prescribed Cymbalta but I can't take the side effects so not taking it. I am looking into CBD/THC. I live in California and got my card yesterday. Now just trying to figure out what to start with and where to get it. I didn't realize how...

    new doctor, how to make the best of the appoinment

    Oh Sunkacola, sorry! I didn't mean to come off as facetious. I just never thought about making a good impression on a doctor. And I have seen many new doctors over the years... rheumatologists, endocrinologists, dermatologists and other GPs besides my primary care doc. And I understand the...

    new doctor, how to make the best of the appoinment

    I've never thought about getting all dolled up to go see my doctor. I mean, I'm clean and dressed and my hair is brushed, but I don't wear makeup and I like comfortable clothes. I've always used the exaggerate method, make everything seem worse than it is, the squeaky wheel thing. I've had the...

    It's official... but Cymbalta?

    Thanks diamond. Read the thread and think I'm gonna try it. I live in California so I can get it legally here. Unlike some of these drugs it can't hurt! :)

    It's official... but Cymbalta?

    Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease. For me I'd rather the pain than to feel like a zombie, but everyone is different. I've started taking 5-htp 50mg. I also take vit E, magnesium, coq10 and vit B. Has anyone tried cannabis oil?

    It's official... but Cymbalta?

    Thanks Peg! I understand that for most people it would be best to give it time, but I just don't have a week of my life to give to get used to a drug or see if the side effects go away. I can't afford to take time off of work (I'm already on reduced hours) and I'm really super sensitive to...

    It's official... but Cymbalta?

    Ok, not taking any more of this cybalta. I feel like a zombie. I can't think, I move in slow motion, I feel totally disconnected. And it's time-released, so the feeling keeps coming and going. Luckily I have nothing to do today but I work tomorrow and I can't function like this.

    It's official... but Cymbalta?

    Thanks Sagey, I took my first Cymbalta tonight. I decided to give it a try. Will see how it goes. I've had a pretty good week, little pain until this morning and here it is again in my shoulders and neck... whoo-hoo! LOL
