Hello,

I have not responded x2 once with interfeuron and once with interfeeuron and ribavrin. I ended up quite psychotic and now have major depression that appears to be permanent. I'd like to take cymbalta however I'm worried about my liver? I have a lot of pain all over that I think the cymbalta with the cylexa I presently take might help? What do you think?
