    This is hell

    So I know I probably shouldn't do this without doctor supervision but I am pretty sure he would have me do it the same way as I am doing it. I decided that I am sick to death of taking so many medications in a day. I was taking 31 pills a day and just decided enough is enough so I decided to...

    Discontinuing Cymbalta--Ugh!

    Two weeks into my Cymbalta taper with Zoloft replacement and I'm wondering why I ever began this drug in the first place. Yes, it did help some with pain but I've got to wonder what price I paid for that. Headaches, brain zaps, nausea, anxiety, pain, GI dysfunction, and a whacked out sleep...
