    Cymbalta for Psychosis; Depression

    Risperdal: I got Risperdal after an 8 week stay in open psychiatry. I delivered myself due to panic attacks and due to a treatment error by an uncompetitive neurologist. He prescribed anti-depressants for me despite a psychosis and panic disorder, dismissed me and sent me home. After about 4-5 days with the treatment of fluoxetine the panic was so strong that I visited open psychiatry. There I got other medications that did not help me. Only after the stay I changed the doctor who prescribed me Risperdal 2mg. My condition improved rapidly but I got through the 2mg dosage the typical neuroleptics side effects: tremor, restlessness, restlessness of the seat, urge to move, inner restlessness. The doctor dosed down to 1mg and gave me an anti-Parkinson agent. It got better, I was able to work and enjoy life again. The anti-Parkinson means I set off. After half a year, the condition worsened and I went to the doctor only after 1 year and told him that I feel depressed but also have high phases but are normal. Overall, Risperdal a very good drug for me against my psychosis which expressed itself with mental disorder and sometimes total listlessness in life. My conclusion for me personally: I like to take it and it helps me! Cymbalta: I got that after telling my therapist that I’m always up and down but not extreme. Sometimes I felt good, went out, made party had fun alive. 2 or 3 days later, sometimes only a week went bad again, I hid myself in bed and did not want to see anyone and do nothing. Then my doctor prescribed me Cymbalta. At first I yawned a lot, was tired, slept a lot but not so extremely depressed. I was already a little bit better after 1 to 2 weeks. The full effect set ca after 3 to 3.5 weeks one of the morning when I woke up and felt so much energy that I was out all day in fine weather and my hobby the photograph went to. Since the onset of action, I had no more depressive phase and even found another job that I start on 2 February. Side effects at the beginning as mentioned above: tiredness, yawning and loss of libido But everything has settled down. Further side effect until today. Decreased need for sleep. My nights are never longer than 6 o’clock even if I can sleep long. Partly I am already awake at 4 o’clock in the morning because I can not sleep anymore but still in a good mood and joy to start the day. So altogether from my doctor a daring but nevertheless for me personally very good combination that brought me back to life!

    Side effects: Tremble; Unrest; Libido loss; Fatigue

    Cymbalta for Trigeminal neuralgia

    With the 1st tablet Cymbalta increasing last nausea, the stronger, the longer it is applied. Could only eat tea and biscuits after 5 days. Restlessness and insomnia, severe loss of libido and erectile dysfunction – the side effects have been unacceptably high, practically with the first tablet and then increased.

    Cymbalta for Pain (joint); Depression

    I have been in treatment for depression and other disorders since 2000. I got Cytalophram Biomo at that time. After about 2 months but because of absolute feeling alienation (blockades in the experience) even discontinued. Without settling phenomena. Since 2008, I take Cymbalta slowly increased to 120mg, less had no effect. In the beginning my pain and depression disappeared on the whole. Later, however, unfortunately came to sleep, loss of libido and listlessness as side effects. Unfortunately, I have combated my sleep with alcohol. Since I was not satisfied with the result, I dropped off Cymbalta at short notice. Big mistake! Aggression, tachycardia, increased resting heartbeat, suicidal thoughts came already from the second day of depopulation. Without end in sight. So I took Cymbalta again. Mending was immediately there. Only in particularly strong restlessness, I take for a year nor in addition Tavor ne half tablet. This helps very well and I have no side effects. For about 3 weeks I have, after reducing the dose to 60mg Cymbalta completely discontinued. The aggression is not so bad, my libido is slowly coming back. But now come other settling phenomena. Slight to moderate Brainzaps, extreme itching, abnormal sleep rhythm (7-16 clock then sleep until 5-7 o’clock awake), loss of the identity (do not remember what’s real to me and what was only generated by my personality disorder). All in all, I’m really dirty. Now I hope to find another solution (medication) with my doctor. Will you suggest to try Elontril? According to the testimonials here, the side effects do not seem to be that serious. If someone knows an advice, please write.

    Cymbalta for Depression

    The first 2 weeks of use: Dizziness, nausea, sluggishness, decreased responsiveness, drowsiness, feeling drunk, unable to drive, fast movements (especially when driving as a passenger) caused me extreme dizziness. Negative side effects that I still have: night sweats, sweats during the day, increased sweating, much thirst, dry mouth, increased urination, difficulty concentrating, gastrointestinal problems, headache, body aches, extremely minimized sexual desire, trauma changes, fatigue / fatigue. However, I can live well with these side effects and tolerate Cymbalta otherwise very well!

    Cymbalta for Adh syndrome

    When discontinuing Cymbalta, you have the problem that the dose can only be roughly categorized. There are capsules with 60mg and 30mg. It would be important but a much finer gradation to gently crawl the drug, otherwise withdrawal symptoms are practically inevitable! Luckily, there is a simple trick! The capsules can be pulled apart easily! So you can remove a part of the granules before you put the cap back on. The filling quantity is best checked with a scale that you keep next to it_kapsel With this simple trick, the dosage can be fine-tuned as desired and withdrawal symptoms should be significantly less severe.

    Cymbalta for Adh syndrome

    The effectiveness against ADS is subtle but positively noticeable. From about the 10th day of the intake I felt more concentrated, alert and better organized. In any case, productivity has increased. The mood has remained neutral, but the inclination to ponder and climb into something has decreased. The first 14 days were fierce! I took 60mg right from the beginning, as prescribed by the doctor. The first two weeks I have observed the following: + Improvement of night sleep + Calming of the digestive system, up to constipation + Less watery eyes in cold draft + Increase in concentration from the 3rd day – Libido loss – strong sweating – Dry mouth – Violent muscle stiffness – permanent Yawning – Afternoon tiredness – increased pimples and skin problems Fortunately, muscle stiffness has fallen to a bearable level after two weeks. What remains are: – heavy sweating – yawning – afternoon tiredness (mentally awake but physically tired) – skin problems – loss of libido (slightly better than in the initial phase) – dry mouth – no improvement in sleep quality – digestion back to normal – inability to take a nap ( no falling asleep more possible) – Increased hunger pangs – Vita Merfen seems to be bad for skin wounds Basically, I feel comfortable with the drug. The strong daily fluctuations of the past have declined significantly. But the side effects are relatively strong and disturbing. I will probably discontinue Cymbalta after consultation with the doctor, because the benefit does not outweigh the side effects. Also, Cymbalta is relatively expensive. Tip: The capsules are easy to pull apart and remove some of the granules. I will certainly apply this on weaning to steer the medication out steplessly. From the manufacturer, I wished me a settling pack, which already contains capsules with decreasing dosage.

    Hi. I have taken good 2 years 120mg / day Cymbalta / Duloxetine for severe recurrent depression, psychosomatic pain and anxiety. Against the Depris, it has helped more than bad. The anxiety and pain, however, were almost completely gone. I would this NOT necessarily recommend the drug because the side effects outweigh it! I list you my side effects on: 1. Sexual aversion: Cymbalta has completely dampened my desire for sex, almost shut down, one of the main reasons why I wanted to sell it 2.Grow increase: I have almost 20 kg (!) Increase in normal Eating behavior 3. Dizziness with forgotten taking: Once forgotten to take in the morning and the day was in the Arsch.Schwindel without end .. 3.Evariableness: The Depris were a bit subdued, but you can somehow not really happy about anything. Man is somehow listless. It is not bad but also not good. One is almost a neutral zombie 4. Absetzerscheinungen: FEARBY! It was the first 5 days of pure hell, although it was slowly ausgezuschalten.Schwindel, tearfulness, Dünnhäutigkeit, powerlessness, impulsiveness, nightmares, sleep disorders, anxiety The complete program! The only positive thing is that the kilos tumble faster than you can weigh yourself. In short: I’m happy to be rid of the stuff BUT you have to mention that every body processed antidepressants differently. I do not want to say that it can not help. For me it might just be the wrong drug. Still, I would agree with the doc if there is not another alternative. I am currently in the process of infiltrating a new antidepressant drug. MOCLOBEMID is a completely different active substance, which is completely different. It belongs to the group of MAO: monoamine oxidase where Cymbalta is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Let’s see if I can cope with it.

    Cymbalta for Migraine; Depression

    Cymbalta experience: first week of taking 30 mg daily: constipation, concentration disorder, anxiety to become addicted to it and not just getting it prescribed by the doctor. poor appetite. At the same time, problems become less serious, I become more indifferent, I am satisfied with myself, I can not defend myself against myself or against others. I am rather calm. after 3 weeks: normalization of physical changes. stability and a feeling of strength persist. After 6 months, the question of when to sneak out. After 7 months problems with the doctor. must do too much to get regular prescription on cymbalta and see the dependency on the drug, the doctor, the income regimen. After 9 months, I clearly see dependency. want to be free. even with pain, with depression. with migraine, with fears and all that I am. I do not want to be deaf anymore. because I feel numb. without passion. customized. not me, who I know myself. no rebellion, no fear – spend terribly much more money, do not want to be afraid of the debt mountain …. by the way: no more libido – although even ovulationif I abstain for a day on the intake: then orgasm and lust, etc. otherwise deaf. nothing. nothing. after nine months i’m fed up: i do not want the chemistry any more. reject the deafness. I fight back. I do not like anything anymore. I have not taken a cymbalta for ten days. simply discontinued. there come the opposite reactions, everything that was suppressed comes up. I swear, I fight against the others. I’m not afraid of that. I say what I think, feel. go on confrontation. it feels good. but: I have vertigo, ear noises, electric shocks, trembling limbs. I really have withdrawal symptoms. no appetite. but I can fight. I can and want to fight. my soul suffers like that, so and so. with cymbalta. without cymbalta …. maybe I’ll break up, maybe not let me dance around anymore … I’ll resist. the price of cymbalta are electric shocks, lack of concentration, pain in the eyes in bright light, also that I am constantly dizzy. and that I can not tell anyone about it. Because nobody should know about the therapy. and he knows that, it benefits greatly from the fact that I take the medicine. that is, if you have to kitten or want to wed your marriage … take what sedates you. you feel strong, independent and free. are deaf to any, even very hurtful criticism of your person. not only deaf, she does not really care about you. and the passion, the meaning of life, run into a careless: do what you need to do. and: Do not fool around here, just be quiet inside. the colors of life are lost. you are lost. you change and you adapt easily and effortlessly. are anything but: UNBEQUEM. No. you are transformed by the cymbalta into a very pleasant, comfortable person. who takes the things as they come. Forgetting yourself and hoping the kids will not mind. For ten days I have the feeling of being tormented by electric shocks and vertigo. on the lungs is also such an unpleasant feeling. I can cry again without cymbalta. went with c. not at all. and I enjoy that I am still alive. Hopefully the side effects will soon come to an end. I can not hear the restlessness and the sweating, the problems of the everyday just not anymore. How long does such a cold withdrawal last? So I have at least 10 or 11 days behind me.

    Cymbalta for Borderline

    I switched from Efexor to Cymbalta because I was always so sweaty. My former therapist thought it would get better but nothing is. With every little movement I sweat so much that my hair is wet and I have to change my clothes. Especially in the cold season, this is very tedious. Actually, you are freezing but still you are drenched. Next it has my desire for sex or even the ¨Nähe¨ totally turned off. I even began to despise affection. I have heard sirens, ringing and sometimes even shouts of names. Apart from that, I’ve always seen animals or shadows in my outermost corners of my eye. Now I plan to change again and just go through hell. I do not eat anymore, I just eat. I have the feeling I stuff everything into me what lies ahead. I also have this cirrus in my head. I do not even have to move to feel it. Dizziness and extreme emotional fluctuations plague me. And, joy prevails, now I even sweat, if I do not even move. My yesterday’s dinner came back by speed mail and I always have problems with my throat and throat. My right almond suddenly swells again and then becomes normal again. I feel like my whole air supply is blocked and I get a lot of air when I breathe through my nose. I am totally exhausted and weakened. Yesterday I could hardly cook in the evening because the whisk seemed to me like a concrete block. I’m always craving something to eat. But I’m getting sick of it right away and the only thing that has not bothered me so far was these chocolate bons. I have now gained 4 kilos after a week and do not feel well at all, because I already had enough on the scales. With the constant sweating and this Gesurre in mind I avoid it to go out. I’m totally beside the track but I’m not giving up now. From Monday I get new meds and let’s see what they do.

    Cymbalta for High blood pressure; Sleep disorders; Fibromyalgia; Depression

    I started in 2006 with amitriptyline 100mg because of massive drowsiness and staying asleep, which also helped me well for 2 years. Until sleep disorders occurred again. Medi was then converted to initially 15mg mirtazapine (2 weeks), then to 30mg mirtazapine. In those 4 years, I have gained a total of 25kg, dry mouth, sex.Unlust, often indifference, listlessness, water retention throughout the body, but I was able to fall asleep quickly and slept through my 6-8h, was rested. Since the beginning of the year, I try to get along without Mirtazapin, which is still very difficult. Cymbalta is supposed to lower the pain threshold, but if I work a lot physically hard I still have to take Diclo acutely to be able to withstand the pain

    Because of migraine and depression or depressive phases, I got this medicine very easily prescribed, with much hope for an improvement of my mental situation. The initial signs of constipation, lack of concentration and altered appetite passed away after a week, when the body settled in … 30 mg Cymbalta were enough, I had to replace the 60 mg pack, I was extremely tired and could not help it except to sleep. after half a year of taking cymbalta 30 mg I had to use the 60mg pack. I seem to have gotten used to it, with increased stress the 30 mg could not catch me anymore. So I think you get used to this drug. The next thing I really want to confirm is that I’ve become calmer, duller and quieter. My environment has gotten very easy with me. a sunshine.tralalala … you could insult me and I did not even feel like defending myself. I have taken everything, done, what had to be done, even if the rest of the family sat and watched TV, I cleaned and washed and so on … it did not bother me that I was the only one to take care of everything. no more quarrels went out of me, contentment and happiness and sun … even my daily jogging laps, I have painlessly, shivered and turned on. felt a bit doped, but not dissatisfied. but somehow I’m not who I am anymore. the search for the meaning of life has made me for years. I could clamp that with cymbalta too – the world is chick and great, why do not the other dissatisfied people see? So if you want to kitten his marriage – no problem, with cymbalta go. only in bed not. everything is deaf zero emotions. okay. Now I was with the doctor, he does not want to continue to prescribe cymbalta to me. but have no desire to torture me with a complicated and long visit to the doctor every three months. why not experience everything as before. I do not want to be dependent. not from cymbalta and not from the doctor. not like that either. I do not feel free, if I keep this up. especially since I had actually planned half a year by trying it out. so advantage of cymbalta: on the one hand, I feel more in my midst, on the other hand dependent on the outer. Since I was heroin dependent, I know what it’s like to be happy with drug. one feels in his middle, invulnerable, strong. but only with it. I want to achieve this strength even without drug, without cymbalta. if it’s meditation, sport, or another lifestyle or alternative remedy – but something that I can do myself. without help or dependence from outside. So I have not taken a cymbalta for about a week. I had a few days off. I can drop it off. sneaking out never worked because I never dropped it off completely, so I took it every day or every other day. I have to be really convinced of the correctness of my work, otherwise I can not prevail against the cymbalta – it has already made me at least mentally dependent. since the weaning I have the following problems: surges rushing in the head dizziness tingling in hands and feet am only arguing, do not hold still, no, I say what bothers me. Of course this is unusual after nine months, the family finds me very exhausting … actually I have a crisis. My blood pressure is spinning too. but also diarrhea: I am passionate. I’m looking for spiritual again. I see meaning in what I do. at the same time the other extreme: no sense. I want to finish this life. not yourself. not out of hand. but it is enough. I do not need more now. then new ideas. what I still want to do only this dizziness: this terrible dizziness annoys me. I do not know. I feel as if I had drunk alcohol. very unpleasant feeling. but it will pass. then suddenly tears. I can cry all of a sudden. In the nine months of Cymbalta I did not cry a single time. not really. I would only be interested in how long it takes for the settling down and everything is back to normal. then I can fast. I will surely fast one week. I’m looking forward to. that is not possible with cymbalta. you can not fast, do not go through your will. everything is so-so. whatever comes, is made or accepted as it is. one has no passion. One is the perfect customized cash machine. Just get a cola or whatever you want on me. yes – I will live through everything. from now on. I’ll accept migraine or depression or something as part of my existence and finish. the experiment cymbalta is over. achso:

    Cymbalta for Depression

    The fifth day with cymbalta, the tightness in the neck has luckily subsided, but the heat rash has become more. The taste has changed or worsened. Otherwise, I have problems sleeping through or falling asleep, one feels tired but is internally upset. The craving for sex has taken hold and it seems almost impossible to achieve orgasm. Despite everything I feel a little better, but let’s see if the desired effect can still be achieved! I hope so that the side effects still lay on duration.

    Cymbalta for Borderline; Depression

    The preparation of the drug ran smoothly. Have taken 120 mg over several months, but can only advise against anyone to take this antidepressant! The psychiatrists claim that this drug is neither addictive nor personality altering, but that is (at least for me) both lied: I had no more mood swings, but I had no mood at all! In the whole months I could not laugh anymore, I was more depressed than before, had lost my libido, loss of drive, loss of interest. By chance I forgot to take my pills 2 weeks ago – after 3 days the withdrawal symptoms appeared: vertigo, nausea, headache, aggression, sensory disturbances, diarrhea, EXTREMELY mood swings (by that I mean weeping and laughing every minute, with intermittent aggression !!!), heart racing, panic, have a cloud in the head …. People: I can HEAR, how my eyes move !!! BUT the GOOD: I can laugh heartily for months now for the first time, can enjoy again, feel good. I experience moods again. And personally, I prefer to lose the nerve, but that means I can enjoy life otherwise! Conclusion: Cymbalta has made everything much worse than it was before. Glad to be rid of it!

    My biggest negative experience with the drug is: I have become very dull, the partner and the environment to sexual disinclination is understated, you just do not feel like and then yes …. point 1 and it is as if you have a task to fulfill, no idea …. Well, the pluses … have not yet discovered, some come back so fully into your old life, let’s see, no one can do magic.

    On Cymbalta I was hired during a hospital stay. Initially, I had very severe side effects such as dizziness, dizziness, and extreme agitation, but these went away after 8-10 days. What has remained is an erectile dysfunction and lack of sexual desire. I suffer a lot from that, because with my 35 years there should still be a lot going on in bed, now nothing works. The fear I have with this drug but very well under control, so I can work again. Now I want to change the drug, because of the remaining side effect. Bottom line, an effective remedy with massive side effects.
