Tell me about Cymbalta
swgusr posted:
Has anyone had experiences (good or bad) with Cymbalta for nerve pain and general pain management? My pain management Dr. prescribed Cymbalta recently and I had a bad reaction--- but it seemed to help with pain issues.

I was on this anti-depressant for one and a half years for depression and pain. It did nothing in the way of helping my pain. It did help with the depression.

I have both migraines and depression. The migraines were so severe that I had to have Family Medical Leave at work so that I would not lose my job of 30 plus years because of them. I took many, many different pain med's, shots etc to help stop one and to try and control them with no success until my Neurologist put me on Cymbalta. I have been taking it for 4 years now and it have helped stop the migraines. I am take it now along with other med's to control my depression. My husband also takes it for depression and for neuropaty pain after breaking his back. It helps him as well. I am grateful to have Cymbalta.
