I am still on Cymbalta 60 mgs a day but I requested my doctor to cut it back to 30mgs a day for now at least.
My mental state is still better, having some unusal thoughts and dreams. More worrysome I have been sweating a great deal the last few days, feeling hot, cold, hot, cold. Today it got worse and more intense. I felt very uncomfortable and the nerves right under my skin hurt all over. It really worked me up and I called my wife at work and the on call doctor. The doctor on call was useless, just said if I was suicidal to come in or she could have the Sheriff come pick me up, wow terrific!! She then said they were really backed up at the ER, but she couldn't tell me anything unless I was seen.
I concluded after taking klonopin, calming down and feeling better that it may be Luvox withdrawels since I took my last dose on Sunday night, or side effect of The Cymbalta which I hope is not the case.
I got kind of angry and I've decided that I wanted to take the lowest amount of Cymbalta which would be 30mgs and if possible I will try to slowly cut back as much as reasonable on these pain meds. I have had a very poor quality of life for almost 3 years and I'm pretty sure all these meds at higher levels has a lot to do with it.
As I said I faxed my Cymbalta doc and explained what was up and my desire to go back to the 30mg dose, I hope she won't frown upon it but I can be really med sensitive and with some meds a little goes a long way.
I would be interested if anyone has knowledge about the Luvox theory. I was on 200mgs a day for 10 years or more.
Thanks again to all
