My mom has been on Zoloft for over a year. All of a sudden she is having horrible restless leg syndrome that is keeping her awake at night. Does anyone else have this problem on this medication after being on it for a while? She has started cutting back and that seems to be making the problem worse.
Hi, I'm new to this group and hoping to find someone who can help explain and understand how horrible my life has been. I started cymbalta over 10 years ago for treatment for leg pain and depression. Every M.D. I've talked to about getting off of it has advised against it. Last year I started with involuntary muscle twitching which can be anywhere from my toes to my facial muscles. Then in January I was diagnosed with central sleep apnea. I had to have 3 separate sleep studies because the physician and my insurance company all believed that the diagnosis of CSA was incorrect. All 3 test were conclusive for Central sleep apnea. There is not one person who can explain to my why this is happening to me and at best I was told it is due to a " chemical embalance. " Is anyone else going through or experiencing this while on cymbalta ?
