Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Four months ago, 10 days after being prescribed 30mg Cymbalta/day I experience vertigo so severe that I had to call 911. Vomiting, room spinning, not able to stand or walk.

    The hospital emergency doctors found nothing in my MRI, blood work, ear exams, etc. They gave me an IV, and meds for motion sickness and nausea. They released my the next day. I was still vomiting and spinning. Although, I am not currently spinning, I have not recovered fully. My balance is still very off when walking. My head feels like a watermelon. My ability to walk and drive normal distances is limited. Also my focus and concentration is diminished though improving.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • All checked side effects started the day after taking Trazodone and have continued for last few days. Severity of all side effects are new and do not think they are related to conditions of fibromyalgia, PTSD, anxiety and depression. I've never been in such a confused mental state and been so sluggish until starting Trazodone.
