Doctor Put Me On Cymbalta

Recommended Posts

My doctor put me on Cymbalta (duloxetine HCL). Does this make any sense for this disease? Cymbalta is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI), approved in the US to treat diabetic peripheral neuropathic. Has it helped anyone? Thanks, John

Hi John..If you'll look at DINET's main page under the "what helps" section you will find that SSRI's are listed as a potential tx. for dysautonomia. You may also want to do a search of this forum for "cymbalta" as it has been discussed before.

Is there a reason your doc. prescribed this med? I only ask b/c I thought you were still seeking a dx.? I any case..I hope it helps you to feel better!

Hi John,

I tried Cymbalta when it first came out. It didn't work for me, lots of tummy pain.

My neurologist said if you have the hyperadrengeric type of POTS a serotonin reuptake without the norepinephrine reuptake SSRI is a better choice. Celexa is working pretty well for me.

Although today is just a bad symptom day period.

Did he prescribe it for neuropathy associated with diabetes?
