  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I was on Sertraline, switched to Cymbalta and added the Gabapentin. So instead of one change in meds, we dropped one and added 2. So I'm not sure if it's the Cybalta or the Gabapentin causing the edema.

  • I have fibromyalgia and am treating it with mucinex, suboxone, cymbalta, welbutrin, and acidophulus. Lupus and crest syndrome run in my family. I want to make sure there is not a toxin in one of these drugs that is making me sicker.
