Anyone Have Experience With Cymbalta?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 Anyone Taken Tizanidine For Their Lupus Or Fibromyalgia?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was prescribed Tizanidine for my Lupus and Fibromyalgia symptoms along with effexor. Does anyone else take these? Do they work? Side effects? I haven't started them yet and I'm looking for opinions. I have a very hard time going to sleep and staying asleep. It's causing a great amount of stress and depression.

Antidepressants For Pain?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

Anyone know of any good antidepressants that can also help with joint pain, neuropathy, and hot "flashes"/burning sensations? The only two that come into mind that I can think of are Cymbalta and Effexor. I'm thinking of asking my doctor about Cymbalta, but I'd like to know if anyone has either tried that one or know of any others. And what side effects, if any, do you experience (weight changes, fatigue, dizziness/confusion, hair loss, etc)
Also, which ones(s) is best for extreme panic attacks… read more
