A couple of weeks ago I saw the PM doc and she switched me from Lyrica to Cymbalta. Right around that time, I was getting over food poisoning and was diagnosed with gastritis. I took my first pill about a week and a half ago before bed, and I woke up feeling very sick that night. I decided to hold off on taking it, because I wasn't sure if I was sick due to the gastritis or the medication.
Well, the gastritis has calmed down, and my appetite has returned to normal, so I decided to try the Cymbalta again. I took it before bed last night, and once again woke up feeling very nauseous. This morning I feel like I'm going to throw up at any moment, I've been dry heaving, and my BP is 150/100. Yeah, forget it...I'm not taking this medication anymore. I am very sensitive to medications and often times have unwanted side effects, but this is one I cannot live with and wait to pass. I can't function and take care of my kids when I'm hovered over the garbage can all day. I'd rather deal with the pain, if that's the case.
So, out of the Neurontin, Lyrica, and Cymbalta, it looks like none of them are right for me.
