Lyrica & Cymbalta

Lyrica & Cymbalta

Is anyone on Lyrica & Cymbalta? My Rheumy wants to try it says it's been helping a lot of people. It's kind of my last hope.

i found that Gabapentin works very well, I take it along with Paxil CR, the mix of them two seem to give me energy. I take the plaquinal at night before bed. Hang tight, hugs to u.

Cymbalta made me worse. Lyrica helped but I reached the highest dose and was switched to Gabapentin. That has helped me tremendously. Please keep in mind that medications work differently on everyone so it might not hurt to try. Hugs!

I am on cymbalta for nueropathy it's not doing anything for it, if anything it's gotten worse, if I had known what that the withdrawals from coming off of it were so scary I never would have started

I am currently on Cymbalta, under the care of my Primary Care Physician. My Rheumatologist said it was more for the Fibromyalgia pain apposed to Lupus, and he was not going to be the one to prescribe it. :-/

I tried lyrica once. Didn't do a thing for my pain but made me high and I slept all day.
