Nothing But Good Things To Say About Cymbalta

Try it, but it did take time for my system to adjust to Cymbalta.

I have been on Cymbalta for over a year now. Before I was diagnosed with GBS I had taken Zoloft and Effexor for depression. Both Zoloft and Effexor had serious side effects for me. While being treated for GBS, my doctors said that I might get relief from nerve pain in my feet by simply switching to Cymbalta.

I can’t be sure if Cymbalta has helped the nerve pain problem, but as an anti-depressant, it has worked very well. In my case, I have no side effects from taking Cymbalta and I feel like a new person from the inside out.

Fortunately, I have had the best care anyone could ever wish for. All of my doctors have jumped at the chance to help me. They have listened and pushed the envelope to see that I will get better. Since first being put on the drug, my GBS doctor has doubled the dosage and also switched me from Gabapentin to Lyrica. I still have pain in my feet and legs, but I am so much better.

The hardest thing for them has been teaching me patience! 😉 Good Luck To You, and if I can help in any way, just let me know.
