I have Spinal Stenosis, Sciatica, facet Hypertrophy, bulging discs and I am so sick of the somas, and xanxa, and oxycodone that the doctor gives me. I am the type of person who likes to have full controll over my mind and im am still young. 21. I asked my doctor if there was anything else i could try, and he said to try cymbalta. It is very expensive, so i hesitate with getting it, but if it gets the job done then there is no question about it. I will definantly take it. At the moment i already spend a little over 600 a month, so if i can take less meds, and the cymbalta then i would do it in a heart beat. My Question is, Does anyone have any experience with taking cymbalta for Sciatica? because this stuff is expensive. I filled a weeks worth, and it was almost 70 bucks.
