I wanted to know if anybody has had good luck with Cymbalta for pain(low back) ? I had surgery in May for L4 nerve root compression from a ruptured disc and I have recently developed back pain. I plan to see my neurosurgeon this week to check this out but meanwhile I have been walking around crying. Some because of the pain and mostly because of my life has been put on hold since last December! One false move shoveling snow and I went from running 6 days a week to barely walking. This has been so depressing.
I finally saw a psychiatrist yesterday and she suggested Cymbalta . For a few months.
Any experience with this drug. I am not one that likes to take medicine.
