Re: Reviews on Cymbalta
I haven't taken Cymbalta and maybe someone will post who has. It is another medication that has been approved for neuropathy pain. It is very hard to go on what others have experienced because everyone reacts in a different way. Lyrica works well for me but others have said they have no effect except a "druggy" feeling.
It's very hopeful that this medication will work for your mother but in case it doesn't, there are other medications her doctor can try. One of the frustating things about this condition is it can take so long for the right treatment to be found and then the correct dosage. Those who have pn start feeling like they will have to live the rest of their lives like this and that is so depressing. You have to keep up your hope because there is a treatment that will work, it just has to be found by trial and error.
Tell your mom that I and others like me, know exactly what she is going through. There are so many emotions. Trying to deal with the pain, the different sensations, the loss of ability, all the tests and drs visits, etc, can be overwhelming. And just when you think you're stable, the pain is back and you have adjust your medication all over again. It is far from fun. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. It's just that sometimes that tunnel is long!
