Cymbalta 20mg
Effexor 15 mg(to mitigate withdrawal)

Day 8 9-10-04

I lowered the dose of Cymbalta today to see if the ringing in my ears might lessen on a lower dose. Just an experiment; I'm going back up to 30mg tomorrow. I've added back about 15-20 mg Effexor to help with the withdrawal symptoms I've been having (anxiety). I'll slowly taper the Effexor over the next few weeks.

I can't really give an accurate report today. I took some prescription pain meds yesterday and so today I feel kind of groggy and out of sorts. (This always happens.)

Taking the pain pills has showed me one new side effect, though. When I take those pain meds, I get a lot of energy and motivation and enjoy doing constructive things. So I went out and worked on my little garden area in the back yard yesterday after I took the meds. I discovered that I sweat a lot more with exertion now that I'm on Cymbalta. Admittedly it was about 85 degrees and I was digging with a shovel but I usually don't perspire much even when I'm hot. Luckily it only seems to happen with pretty heavy activity. I haven't noticed any sweating at all during normal activities.

I'll be able to report better tomorrow. I should be about back to "normal" by then.
