Get the new consult with another pdoc. Good luck and sorry your're feeling badly and cymbalta isn't working for you. It didn't for me either just got rid of aches and pains. Love Phillipa

Same old luvox hoping soon thyroid will stabalize and it will be easier to treat. As must be stable before ad's will work. Phillipa. Hope the second opinion turns out well.

Yes Phillipa I am going back to the old p-doc this coming Wednesday he was very upset when he found out what the other p-doc told me and yes he was young he said the only thing that would happen to me was panic attacks but i could handle that but I new better then to stop it. The old p-doc call me right back when he found out what I told his secerty, Yes I did up the cymbalta to 90 mgs and today I feel a little better been a few days since I upped it. The old p-doc said he had some other things he was going to try on me if I don't feel better by the time I go to c him so we shall see. I have had a nasty headache for a couple of days as well but I did tell my p-doc I would like to try to come off the klonopin if I could so we shall c how that goes over when I c him Wednesday. Hey Phillipa where do u live I live n the Usa just was wondering. Take Care Suebird

Suebirds so still on cymbalta with the addition of Sam-e. I too take same vitamins. How does the Sam-e make you feel any side effects? Love Phillipa

Phillipa, Well so far I have only taking the sam-e for a few days and so far no side effects can I say. I must say I have had a little more energy then I had before but I also starting cutting the klonopin back as well I really would like to get off of that stuff so I am feeling a little of that but not real bad dealing with it. Have you ever tried the sam-e before. I just hope what I am doing now will keep helping me feel better. Suebird

Phillipa, so when did you start cutting back on the vallium i hear they use that sometimes when you wean off the klonopin but im cutting it back very slow and will do it every couple of weeks it will probably take me a few months to come off of it. But I really want to see if i can go without it. Keep me posted on how your doing as well. Love Suebird
