Cymbalta or Trazadone?

Has anyone been perscribed these meds before? I take them and am feeling much better but not 100%. I don't expect to feel 100% but would like to feel a little bit better. What were your experiences on these meds? I get really weird dreams on trazadone but I sleep well.

  • My mom has always had trouble sleeping.. all her life. Her dr. just gave her Cymbalta to try and she LOVES it. She said she has been sleeping normal since she started side effects or anything. Shes been on it for about a month now and I see a huge differance. She has always had strange sleeping habits.. some weeks shes up all day and sleeps all night, some weeks shes up all night and sleeps all day.. lately she sleeps from 11pm-8am every night and she feels great!

  • I take trazadone and have for about two years because I have severe insomnia otherwise. In fact the trazadone barely helps if that tells you anything. I like it but I found it made my back hurt compared to other sleeping medication I was given. I dont know why.
