Lyrica & Cymbalta

Have you heard of this combo
I really dislike the lyrica but the results are OK I Know how bad my nerve pain is when i am without it
Curious about combo
Lyrica 3tabs 75mg
Cymbalta 20mg for now
Just dont like taking something and continually increasing it ro find level that works
Fell 11ft 2007 numerous fractures broken arm, 4 head bleeds.
Nerve blocks, tried stimulator, acupuncture, massage, numerous injections, nerve blocks. Ect. Vitamins
2011 laminectomy, april 4. 2014 Fusion l5-S1. PLIF


  • I've been on this combo for about 12 months now. I'm now titrating down the lyrica following a successful ALIF in September. I found the lyrica cymbalta combination a good one for me as I couldn't tolerate higher levels of lyrica. Adding the cymbalta meant I could survive on the lower dose of lyrica and still somewhat function.

    good luck with it

    Why has your doctor put you on the combination? There has to be some good rationale for that decision.
