I don't know if you recall, I approached you with some WEIRD things going on, which I attributed to side effects.

I was on so much medication, I decided to research all of them. The two that stood out the most were Seroquel and Cymbalta, which I had been on for years. My hands were completely numb, I could not hold anything. I was also shaking so badly, internally and externally, you could see it across the room.

I went off the Cymbalta and dramatically reduced my Seroquel and all side effects are gone. I also went off other meds like Inderal, which I was taking for tremors.

I feel FANTASTIC !!! However, as we all know, caution is the word of the day.

Dear Allison,
