Anyone Have Experience With Cymbalta?

Anyone Have Experience With Cymbalta?

My doc wants to switch me to Cymbalta bc it doesn’t interact with Amitriptyline (sp?) and other meds. Yet, I have been doing so well on my Effexor, I hate to try an unknown drug, especially having so many reactions to meds.
So, I was wondering if anyone could share the good, bad, and/or ugly experiences they have had with it.
Thank you!!!

Has/Is Anyone Taking Effexor XR And Plaquenil Together?

I've been taking Plaquenil for years with no issues. My therapist just put me on Effexor for anxiety. She said the medications are safe to take together but when I did a quick google just to ease my mind, it said differently.
