Hello, I'm new here. I have fm. I believe my mother had it as well although she was never diagnosed but she died when I was 18 of breast cancer.

I can't work hardly at all. It's gotten real bad in the last year, probably because I've gained almost 80lbs. .....I think from taking anti-depressants.

I used to work successfully as an Executive Assistant with a well known pharmaceutical company, Abbott.

I haven't found a good doctor yet, my general doctor switched me from prozac to cymbalta about 1 1/2 weeks ago.....I'm scared of all the bad things I've read about Cymbalta, can anyone testify to how this med has affected them? (P.S. I'm also taking Tramadol for pain, Xanax - when needed - which is hardly ever, and beuprenorphine, a.k.a. subutex. I also take Ibuprofen every day for my sciatica)

I also have insomnia so I sleep from like 6am - 3 or so and am up all night. If anyone has any advice I sure appreciate your time telling me..
