Cymbalta?

I was prescribed cymbalta for fibromyalgia. Have you ever taken it? Was it helpful?

  • i took cymbalta for two years and felt more functional than with others. However, I've been on Pristiq two weeks and have energy that cymbalta didnt provide. I dont have fibromyalgia but my depression affects me like a very run down battery. I'm practically nonfunctional. I'm very pleased with Pristiq. Good luck with your meds.

  • I have Fibromyalgia....I didnt take it long enough to fnd out if it worked it made super sick I only took one and gave up....But I have taken almost everything else including lyrica and gabbapentin(neurantin) and I havent yet found anything to help. I've been looking for something for years and have recently started looking into herbal medicines....so far they havnt made me sick or high and the pain hasnt been so bad. good luck
