    I have horribly, terrifying nightmares, every night. They are all variations on a theme of terror.
  • Do i need to quit drinking coffee while i take thrive?
    I take Cymbalta for pain relief from Arthritis and now on Metformin due to Diabetes 2 probably from lack of exercise because of the Arthritis pain. I am 70 years old and just started taking Thrive. I drink coffee a cup of coffee in the morning each day. Do I need to stop that habit?

You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • Cymbalta side effects
    Starting Cymbalta, side effects were dizzy,felt drugged. Helped with Arthritis pain. About six weeks after i started i developed rectal bleeding.Doctor had me stop Cymbalta and use Tramadol as needed for withdrawal.
  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Numbness between toes
    This summer I flip flops, with the strap between my toes, almost exclusively. When I switched this fall to regular shoes I noticed a strange, numb sensation between my big toe and second toe. At first I thought it had something to do with the flip flops and thought it would go away. It has been a few weeks now and this has not gone away, and if anything seems to cover a larger area. Oddly enough I mentioned this to a friend today and she says she has the same thing, between her second and third toe...both of us on our right feet. She is also on an antidepressant but couldn't remember which one, but we thought this was an odd coincidence. She explained it as sort of a sensation that there is a hole in your sock or shoe...and that made sense to me...there is still some sensation in the area but it is an odd feeling...something isn't quite right. I am doing some online research right now to try to figure out if this is common with Cymbalta or not?
  • Cymbalta caused joint pain
    I had taken Cymbalta for about 1.5 years and after taking it for a few months, I started having widespread joint pain. The joint pain has gotten worse and is becoming debilitating. Joint pain in the literature as a side affect of the drug but the joint pain seems to be permanent! I have not taken Cymbalta in a couple years but the joint pain has remained. I have had blood tests and my doctor says the tests show it is not arthritis.
