Re: finally off ultram
Ann, I'm sorry...I'm just in total disbelief that Cymbalta is on the market. Some drugs are fine, helpful even, I agree. ****** Cymbalta along with withdrawal, hives, liver damage, etc...see what you think. Also...FDA issued a warning against it if you have abused alcohol, which I have. My Psych NP knew this and still prescribed it. Everyone should be their own advocate when it comes to taking any drug... prior to taking what a doctor gets from a drug company in samples by the 100's. Oh and guess who is at the top of the Fortune 500 companies? Drug companies..yep. There's a reason we *need* these.
Sorry for the rant, but I am truly horrified.
Tapergirl..great job...keep it up. Honestly...it is SO worth it. I honestly feel fine mentally which is what I was really worried about. When I finally went off it I made sure I was down to very little and had a bit of sleep aid for the nights. We are all different. I had tried before and couldn't do it. Once you truly make the decision though...nothing will stop you. It truly is empowering.
Best of luck to both of you.
