Cymbalta for neuropathic pain

I am now a big fan of Cymbalta and wanted to share my expience. I had been taking it along with Gabapentin for over 2 years now for the pain associated with my SFN. It is an expensive drug, plus I was feeling so good that I wondered how much this expensive med was helping. I worked with my doctor to slowly reduce the dosage so as not to have the withdrawal effects that people have when they go cold turkey off a med like this. All seemed to be going pretty good until I got to the point of taking 30 mg every other day. This is when the drug was really getting out of my system. Wow, my hands hurt just to pick up something, and my nerves were firing randomly it seems like everywhere. Needless to say, I'm back on the Cymbalta, am once more a happy camper, and am thankful for this med. - Ruby

Re: Cymbalta for neuropathic pain

My neurologist wanted me to get on that years ago....never "wanted" to ...but yours and a few other posts from here have made me think twice about MAYBE looking into trying it.

Thanks for the post.
