I have recently been prescribed 30 milligrams Cymbalta per day to start. I've been reading so many things many good and many bad about the medication. I have had surgeries in my neck and have broken vertebrae in my back and have been dealing with pain issues for a very long time. Also deal with some depression. I know I have to make the decision for myself but I have a hard time adding another medication that is difficult to stop once you find it doesn't help or that you may have been helped to the point you no longer need it. Doctor consult with neurologist, my family doctor, and Pain Management agree that's Cymbalta may be helpful and I should try it. I don't know if I'm reading too many things on the internet or if I should just give it a try and if it doesn't work hope I can stop. Looking for anybody with a story about their experience with making the decision to start Cymbalta and how it worked for them for depression and or pain. Mostly looking to knock out the depression aspect of things. I have been told I need anoyher neck surgery while at the same time other opinions say the that the chance of fixing my problem is less than 50% through surgery so I have been doing a lot of physical therapy . I'm looking for cymbalta to help with depression and helping with pain would be an added bonus . Any experience that others may have had that we're good or bad please share. Im conflicted in whether to start cymbalta..Thank you
