i was taking daily-
3600 mg neurontin
30 mg cymbalta
50 mg nortriptyline
still having nerve pain in my foot and pins/needles in my hands, my doctor upped my cymbalta to 60 mg/daily.
my hand pins/needles were masked COMPLETELY.
i was curious how well the cymbalta was working, so i tried decreasing my neurontin.
well, i am down to 1800 mg/daily of neurontin!!!
so, basically 60 mg cymbalta has been more effective than 1800 mg of neurontin!!!
my point is---GIVE CYMBALTA A TRY!!! i don't know if the combination with nortriptyline is required, as i have yet to try taking away the nortrip.
but i am really pleased with the amount of nerve pain an antidepressant can take away.
hope this helps someone
