I have been diagnosed with chronic pain in my neck, upper back and shoulder area. After extensive testing the origin is still unknown, but because of the pain's characteristics it seems to be nerve related.
I was on Paxil, 40 mg daily for years, so long I forgot why I needed it
)) My doctor recently suggested that I switch to Cymbalta, as it may be more effective for pain. I weaned off the Paxil and started the Cymbalta 6 days ago. I have been experiencing extreme nausea and sleeplessness. Since I have only been on it 6 days, I have stopped taking it cold turkey. Has anyone else had difficulty tolerating this medication? Any suggestions for lingering nausea?
I have been researching Wellbutrin and this medication may be a better fit. Has anyone tried this for pain?
I would appreciate any thoughts you may have,
