Re: Cymbalta - a great drug frombe

In reply to Cymbalta - looking for information, posted by frombe on October 22, 2004, at 2:57:45

I'm on week 8 of 13 pellets out of a 30mg capsule. If you care to read my in-depth story of this rather remarkable experience, it's posted in several threads. I started out with 30mg and went through the roof. I'm bipolar and have had great difficulty with all ADs, even though I need an AD along with lithium.

I'm grateful I listened to my inner voice to keep on trying with Cymbalta but to go painfully slow. This may not be appropriate for everyone, but for those who find Cymbalta's side effects too much to tolerate, you may be in a group who generally does not fare well on higher doses of some drugs. Try emptying out the capsule into a cup and taking a few pellets onto your fingertip and into your mouth. You should feel something, a bit of anxiety, a slight headache, something to let you know it's working, but not so much that it's uncomfortable. Within a few days, if all goes well, you'll find your thoughts moving from 'I Can't Stand One More Thing!!' to 'Yeah, I can take this.'. I love it. And that's saying something from someone who's been on this merry-go-round for 25 years. - BarbaraCat
