    Experiencing any side effects with the duloxetine?  I felt that I had some issues in the first few weeks and got on this forum to see if it was common.  Been following to see if anyone else has similar issues.  FYI, been on duloxetine 60mg for a few months now and it seems to be working well with minimal side effects.

    Hope this helps with your pain!  Have you tried CBD?  Is it an option where you live?  I had a very good experience with it for post surgery pain.  Heavy narcotics were not touching the pain and I was taking more than prescribed.  Not wanting to mess around with opiates I tried CBD.  Didn't take another narcotic after that!

      I have Fibromyalgia and very bad depression. I TRIED CBD oil for just little while because I dont like the fatigue I feel with Tramadol. Can you please tell me the dosage and the method of application? The CBD oil did nothing for me. Maybe i need to take it longer or higher dosage. I took it sublingual under the tongue as suggested. Did nothing but upset my gut.

      I've been on Tramadol for my pain for over 1 year. My body is getting use to it so it takes longer to take away the pain. I'm now on CYMBALTA 3 days in. I'm also still on tramadol. My DR stated it was OKAY to take. I prefer to stagger them instead of all together. I already feel the side effects of cymbalta. FIRST day was extreme trembling and shaking like i was going to have a siezure; next day just a space cadet, brain buzzing stuffy head feeling. Also some stomach issues. My body does not do well with anti depressants but I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired; desperate for something to work! I'm unmotivated, everything takes great effort, self care has got up and went. I've gain weight and I'm somebody who is very vain. So the weight issue alone is enough fuel the depression. I have brain fog I feel my IQ has dropped a few notches. I've been on medical leave for 9 months. Due to other health issues. MOST of my friends would have cave under the pressure and stress I'm under but I've always been a trooper. BUT its getting old fast! SEARCHING for a better solution than opiates and anti depressants that leave u feeling worse.

      Hi Karen I know just how you feel and to be honest I am glad you are suffering too with the sweating and as I thought it was just me.

      I have wet wipes in me handbag and also a cooling cloth to try and assist in keeping me cool. I have but I find it so embarrassing constantly being all sweaty and horrible. I have I have even started trying to reduce my duloxetine to see if that will help x

    Hi,

    I take propanthelene to stop perspiration. It made me short tempered and when I started to use Oxybutynin patch as well, it took away my bad temper. Strange. Similar drugs.

    I was prescribed many of your drugs which seem to be the basic list to treat any unusual pain or sensations. I stopped them as soon as I realised the side effects were too much. Just wondering if the benefits outweighed the side effects for you all. Do not take medication if it is not doing the job.

    KEITH
