    Cymbalta for Aggressiveness; Depression

    Hello I got cymbalta prescribed and found that it is not that optimal for me. besides, I also found that I was increasing unchecked. I tried to sell Cymbalta without the help of the doctor just from today to tomorrow – does not do that! It is hell – and not only for you – also for your environment. I was from zero to 100 in 2 seconds – I had a lot of difficulty with controlling as far as possible, that I would not have the next best one clean. I got such an unspeakable hate in myself against myself and against all others, that it nearly broke me inwardly! I take cymbalta again – because I did not stand the described condition – but I want to get away from it!

    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 Depression

    Take Cymbalta 60 mg for depression. Have taken it 3 years ago for 1 1/2 years. It tolerated quite well, no weight gain but occasionally palpitations, fatigue, dry mouth. It helped me a lot, my depression went away, I can feel happy again, my pain from my fibromyalgia became much less. When I started to reduce the tablets slowly and started on, I had very strong ABSORBENT. Severe dizziness, sudden insane pain everywhere, nausea, stomach cramps, electroshock in the head. It was unbearable. I took the old dose until I was fine. Then I found the SOLUTION: I reduced the dose by 1mg each day. So from 60 mg to 59mg. The following day at 58mg, until I arrived at Omg after 60 days. It worked great. Had virtually no settling phenomena. I opened a 60mg capsule and counted the beads. The crowd divided by 60. So I had the amount of beads around which I had to reduce the dose every day. For example: 1 mg = 8 beads. Then on the first day take 8 pellets from the capsule. The rest in there leave and very important: close the capsule again and then swallow. On the 2nd day, swallow 2×8 pellets less. On the 3rd day 3×8, etc., etc. So that nothing goes wrong, I have previously written a plan with date, dose.

    Cymbalta for Depression

    Constipation, restless legs, restless sleep, lousy dreams u tremendous weight loss and daytime fatigue were persistent side effects over the entire duration of 1/2 year – I had to weigh whether I pay this price. I am stable again and have cymbalta discontinued, but already almost three weeks ago u globules for beads, which I counted out. Except for still existing Schwankschwindel I have no Absetzungserscheinungen. Driving is not possible at the moment, I only use the bike to hold on to it. Occasionally happens that I can not get the curve u hang on the door frame. Even when walking straight on straight, I stumble over non-existent bumps. After trying many medications for years (with fewer side effects, but also without prompt effects), I am thrilled with the immediate effects of Cymbalta (despite the side effects) and recommend it to others, but not as a long-term medication. In a dependence I would certainly not guess because of the side effects. Note: I had to take Cymbalta at exactly the same time, otherwise precipitation occurred immediately u increased side effects

    Cymbalta for Pain (chronic); Depression

    Since I take Cymbalta (initially 1 x 30 mg, then 1 x 60 mg for a longer period of time) I am no longer myself: side effects of any kind! The effect is not bad, but I am constantly turned on, euphoric, almost manic. For some weeks I try to slowly sneak out of this devil stuff (1 week 60, 45, 30, 20, 10 mg.) And for 2 days I’m completely without. Now I suffer from severe weaning symptoms (although it should not make dependent!): Dizziness, ear noises, nausea u. v. m.

    Cymbalta for Depression

    I’ve been taking about 1 year now, about 60mg / d. 2-3 days of hallucinations, euphoria, nausea, blurred vision. Side effects disappeared very quickly. Depression too. After 9 months, depression increased again, in addition to a terrible paranoia. Weight gain 20kg / j For 3 days now 120 mg / d. increased sweating, fatigue and so a strange melancholy, thoughtful mood already the whole day. Not really bad … but not good either … weird. do not talk. Oh. Weaning is hell! I’ve tried 2 times at 60 mg. Surrender, nausea all day, extreme surges (neuropathy) What should be the first at 120mg?

    Cymbalta for Depression

    everyone reports from the Oberhammer. I would like to join. However, with a 180 degree rotation. I applied as a pharma rep for boehringer ingelheim cymbalta. had the highest prescription rates in Germany. So he was convinced of the preparation. then the termination by the employer. the heaviest depressions were the result. now i have taken cymbalta myself over 2 years. the effect was good. there were side effects. restless sleep, sweating, nausea, weight gain. this mainly with the intake of 60mg. I asked myself after 2 years, you want to be dependent on cymbalta always and forever. my answer for me was no. So I tried to escape the drug and ultimately succeeded. It was hell over months. I had the worst side effects in every sleep phase. It always felt asleep when going to sleep, as if my brain would refuse to be deprived of cymbalta. I felt like metal beating on metal. My brain showed a normal spasmodic behavior. During the day I became very dizzy. as written, I have been trained on cymbalta, have taken it myself for 2 years. I really know what I am writing about. I can only advise to find another way out of depression. After more than 3 years of inpatient and outpatient therapy, I am continuously free from depression. I am so glad to no longer be a slave to Cymbalta.

    Cymbalta for Depression

    Withdrawal symptoms, nightmares, high blood pressure, blood pressure crisis, lightning eyes, irritable I took Cymbalta 90 mg a year. 20 kilos increased, edema in the legs, restraints were twice as thick as usual, had no fears for listlessness, could not laugh and not cry. Was tired all day long. I was switched back to Fluoxetine and Trimipramine, Cymbalta swelled with 30 mg steps that was probably too fast. For 7 days I have had violent nightmares every night, headaches in the morning and throughout the day. Blood pressure 120/200, so I was then I landed at the ambulance. I see flashes when I move my eyes. Right now I’m taking 5 mg Cymbalta again. about 30 beads. The rest I take from the capsule and reduce very slowly. Cymbalta is a drug that causes the most severe settling. I let it me, because I thought I take it off and so I’m happy again. Unfortunately that was not the case and the weaning make me hard to manage. My psychiatrist was amazed that I have such severe withdrawal symptoms. I hope I am fine again soon. But I have read in the experience reports that this can go on for weeks.

    Cymbalta for Depression

    Very good drug, with severe withdrawal symptoms I had and wanted to try after another depressive episode an anti-depressant. Since other anti-depressants made me yawn a lot, my neurologist Cymbalta prescribed me, initially 30mg, later 60mg / day. The side effects were quite intense. Anafngs I had difficulty falling asleep and suffered from apptitlosigkeit (about 6-8 kg in the first few months, which was a nice side effect). In addition, the Orgamus retarded under Cymbalta very backwards (again something that I found quite good). Overall, I felt very energized, especially due to the noradrelin reuptake inhibitor of Cymbalta. But I always noticed when I forgot my Cymbalta in the morning, which showed very quickly withdrawal symptoms. Above all, a certain amount of noise in the perception (sounded as if you turn on the receiving part of a radio, and some noise increases and decreases again). Added to this was some dizziness. It surprised me and my therapist, how fast the side effects started, and therefore I always had some Cymbalta in my pocket, so that I could catch up quickly. Less than a week ago, I completely forgot to take it, and together with my therapist I decided to try it again without anti-depressants. That meant for me, completely settle. I decided against skipping, so I could get through the subject faster, but I would not advise anyone. But I thought I was emotionally stable enough not to fall into a new hole with the weaning. But I clearly underestimated the physical side effects. Since discontinuing the drug torment me since the withdrawal symptoms. My appetite has returned, so I have to pay close attention to my weight. Besides, the dizziness never disappears completely. Nausea adds to the difficulty, so I often like to lie down during the day. I also feel slightly dizzy all day long. Every now and then a wave runs through me like a small electric shock. After work, I lie down to bed quickly so as not to notice the nausea and dizziness. I was hoping to get through with 3 days of cold turkey with the side effects. Unfortunately, I was wrong. A week later, I still have strong side effects, but slowly but steadily decrease. Overall, I was very satisfied with Cymbalta. However long duration and intensity of withdrawal symptoms at drug withdrawal surprised me.

    Cymbalta for Pain (chronic); Depression

    The drug helps me very well. I gained 20 kg, but feel well. However, after 4 years now, notice that it changes my thinking and remembering ability. I can not stop the drug! The withdrawal symptoms are unbearable for me. Now open the capsule and reduce the dose in half. Note in your head some relief and well-being, but take the chron. Pain again too. The headdresses of the withdrawal are bearable. Have the Medikamnt completely discontinued and suicide was endangered. Please be careful when settling !!

    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!

    Cymbalta for Disc prolapse

    Hello sufferers and willing to settle, I’m not the Depri freak and not the pain expert par excellence. For fellow sufferers I want to describe why and how I like the 3 o. G. Discontinued medications without substitution and in case of neuropathic pain (Spondylarthrosis Chronified Stage III) BS 3/4 and 4/5 – dormant incident – clear. After severe pain and myelography, I was not operated on, but switched from an orthopedist to a pain center. There, without ever having had any serious depression, I got Cymbalta 30 to set up and then Cymbalta 60 in the morning, and Tiidin 50/4 twice daily and Katadolon Long in the evening. Although the pain got better, but I always felt tired, dizzy, had nightmares and overall, I stood slightly next to me, although I had full work, drive a car, etc. In addition, I lost 15 kg in the first 4 months, so my Family doctor has already done some tests for lung cancer, but not confirmed. The radiologist then said that weight loss would be due to tilidine, as this would make it nauseating. I had repeatedly asked the attending physician in the pain therapy at least to sell Tilidin and Cymbalta. She did not agree and became angry. In August 2008, I asked this strange doctor the liability issue, if I get involved in an accident. She then offered me Juristra (or similar written) as a substitute. I skimmed the leaflet and returned the box to her. About her chief physician, I then first forced the discontinuation of tilidine. It worked from 2 to 1 tablet and 0 in 3 days and I already felt better and started to gain weight again. 6 weeks ago I dropped off Katadolon overnight without any lasting consequences. The doctor went to another clinic in October (thank god) and I started selling Cymbalta in November. One week Cymbalta 30, in the second and third week Cymbalta 30 every other day and for a few weeks I am drug-free and take occasionally (once a week, if I can not help it) a Voltaren 75 Resinat and that helps better than the other nonsense together , For creatinine values of 1.1 to max. 1,2 is not a problem for the kidneys. The withdrawal symptoms of Cymbalta (allegedly also as a neuropathic painkiller also suitable for non-diabetics) were hell. When I first turned my head, my surroundings raced after me. That went away then. Then I got ear pickers under light load and running a kind of punches in my head, as if I was on a stun gun, or intermittently on an ignition cable. At night I woke up to nightmares with tachycardia (with otherwise good constitution) and was bathed in sweat. In addition, I heard in the wachtraum / half-dream phones ringing or the like, which were never there. I ignored all this, continued to work, and for a few weeks I have been clean without any deprecation. I enjoy driving again and my memory became normal again. I also have my normal weight back and can give jackets and tight-fitting shirts. I also did not know that Cymbalta was given for Boderline Syndrome and had learned it accidentally by an affected person, which I made the erstbehandelten doctor severest allegations, almost up to criminal charges. I am now with her by an experienced colleague and every 3 weeks I have injections in my back, which I find to be helpful. I would never again take Cymbalta and Tilidine only in the most extreme emergency for a few days. Many greetings, Arno45

    Cymbalta for Depression

    Thanks to these funny drugs, I was able to catch up with my high school diploma. The price I had to pay for it was too high. The side effects such as sweating, sleep disorders and impotence I have endured three years. Gratitude happiness is nice, but it gets annoying with time. Through Cymbalta my emotional life is flattened. It’s bad when you can suddenly feel the full range of feelings only shallow luck or fervent anger. I was no longer in control if I did not take these tablets, if I wanted to sleep with my girlfriend. The only important thing for me was that I became capable again. At least until I graduated from high school. Long story short: The purpose justifies the means. But it is not in my interest to be dependent on this drug for a lifetime. After more than three years of treatment, I sold Cymbalta and Amantadine on New Year’s Day. The physical withdrawal symptoms, such as permanent tremors, a shock like electroshock that flares up every 10 seconds and stops after a tenth of a second, stopped after two weeks. The mental withdrawal symptoms are expressed by the feeling of overstrain in stressful situations, which is quite easy to master with autogenic training and a little bit of cannabis. At the moment I am treating myself with small amounts of cannabis. (Half a gram every two days to reward in the evening) The performance has remained, the side effects have gone ……. Mother Nature has something for everyone

    Cymbalta for Depression

    Was in inpatient treatment two years ago (about 3 months). Starting with citalopram (not tolerated), then tuned to Cymbalta. Starting with 30 mg and after 2 months increased to 60 mg. Side effects: heavy sweating, weight gain (18 kg !!!). Otherwise, the drug helped me well. After a few changes in my life (new love, change of location, new job ….) I have now discontinued the Cymbalta. Initially to 30 mg (over 4 weeks) and completely omitted for a few days. The side effects are quite severe. Am very irritated and brushed on riot, swindle, cotton in the head, whiny. Physical complaints: diarrhea, nausea, rash and redness on the face. But keep trying, because I want to completely away from the medis. I also changed my diet. Little coffee (and then decaffeinated), omit foods that contain a lot of histamine, just carbohydrates in the morning, otherwise lots of vegetables, salads, fish and white meat. I hope that someday I will be able to recreate my old figure and balance my soul life.
