Been on these for a week now for my migraine and feel dreadful. Has anyone else had these pills. Im also on topamax. Had migraine for 21 yrs and totally fed up !!

  1. I switched to Cymbalata and recently went 6 WHOLE days without a migraine!! It's been over a year since that has happened. I don't know if it is because of the Cymbalta, but it is better for my depression as well.

    1. Hi kyange,

      That is terrific news! Thank you so much for sharing your success with us, we LOVE to hear these.

      Do keep us posted on your success, OK?


  2. kyange, I wonder if the Cymbalta is still working for you? I hope so.

    I wonder if anyone else has any success stories with Cymbalta? Also have anything else to share about Cymbalta or if you've taken it along with anything else like topamax? Thanks for sharing any experience with it.

    Kind regards.

    1. I was on Cymbalta and all I can report are tears. It fixed my migraines for one week and then never again. The mood swings and depression were horrible. I felt like someone else. At one point I'd break out into tears in public for very little reason. My family thought I was losing it. The weirdo thing is that it made me so lethargic that all I wanted to do was sleep all day. Nothing could boost me out of the tiredness and I tried caffeine, ginseng, finally sudafed--which worked while I was having a sinus infection. But eventually I had to stop that. Yet my doctor kept telling me that all his other patients reported new energy from the stuff. But the warning label mentioned sleepiness, so I knew I wasn't crazy.

      Couldn't wait to get off the stuff. Withdrawal was bad. Never want to think about that drug again.
