OOPS, double dosed

Thanks you fibro fog, I could have sworn I forgot to take my cymbalta this morning. Took my back up dose I keep in my key chain pill thing because I was out. Got home and my usual daily dose wasn't there....OOPS doubled up on the cymbalta today... but on the plus side my back feels a little bit better so far today.

Re: OOPS, double dosed

oh sis,
the golden rule, when in doubt don't. glad you are feeling less pain but please don't do that again. within a few hours you would have known you took it. i was having the same issue with a med so i got another little weekly pill keeper and put them in there. it worked.
hugs for a perfect rest of your day.
love and peace,
blue

Re: OOPS, double dosed

Yes sis, i know that rule. (or I thought I did) But I was positive I did not take them. I filled my daily pill case up and set yesterdays dose aside while I filled it. I never remembered taking it and it wasn't one of those did I or don't I feelings.. Guess I can't go by that again because that dose was no place is sight when I returned home, not even on the floor. Usually if there is doubt I do wait but for some reason I had not a shred of doubt yesterday... oh well.. now I wait every time regardless if i feel sure or not.

Re: OOPS, double dosed

hi sis,
i hear ya. so much for trusting your inner voice! giggle. it bites rocks when that day comes and you know you're up that stinky creek paddleless. giggle. these days i simply do not trust my "instincts" when it comes to my medications. i still trust me on every other level. giggle.
so, did you have a great day with that much med in you? giggle. i hope so.
peace,
blue

Re: OOPS, double dosed

good morning ladies, I did feel great friday. But I think I paid for it on saturday. This may be my first taste of what it'll feel like when or if I really do go off the cymbalta in the fall. Friday I felt real good, woke up saturday with a dull headache and achy as all get out, took 3 naps and did not even think about doing anything that took thought.
I even slept good last night, friday night I slept pretty crappy I think mostly mostly because I did not take my muscle relaxer.

Today is better and feel more normal (whatever that is) Might even do something!

Re: OOPS, double dosed

i am so glad you are doing better. maybe what you felt was fallout from too much med in you. a bit different from none. forgive me sis my old dusty brain but why are you contemplating quitting cymbalta?
hugs,
sis blue

Re: OOPS, double dosed

Funny you say that. I did that with the entire first rx of that i had filled. Now i am out for a month. I told my doc, he didnt seem upset and i felt A LOT better when I was taking that much. So I'm hoping he prescribes me the amount I was taking because i am definitely much worse now than I was. I guess i just have to wait and see.
