Will Cymbalta Make Me Feel Better Right Away
I have MS like symptoms for 6 months.Neuro thinks it's anxiety and gave me cymbalta (duloxetine).It took 80% of pain away.Im no anxious or depressed.I need a cure?
So if cymbalta (duloxetine) takes time to build up in your system then if i was going to have a reaction to it it wouldn't happen right away either?
Possibly: Side effects or "reactions to" a medication can happen at any time. Therapeutic effects do take awhile -- usually at least 4-6 weeks -- to build up in your system. Side effects of Cymbalta (duloxetine) may occur before therapeutic effects do. Balancing these with potential benefits will be up to you and your psychiatrist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Added 10 mg nortriptyline (nummular headache) to 50 mg trazodone (insomnia) with 60 mg cymbalta (duloxetine) (migraine). Felt dizzy, drugged & weak so stopped trazodone. Feel better, but can't sleep. What to do?
Insomnia: A poor sleep technic perhaps. Insomnia can occur when the environment where you sleep does not facilitate this important process. Make sure you have no distractions in the room like a tv, laptop. Ipad, smart phones, books, etc. . If still having problems may consider evaluation for restless leg syndrome or depression. Exercise during the day, not at night. Tell your physician about side effects. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
