  • Support group for people who have Depression
    I'm taking 100 mg of Zoloft a day. It helps with depression but I am having acid reflux and all over muscle pain. Has anyone else experienced this?
  • Support group for people who take Cymbalta
    Now found out I have incompetent vein in leg which may be part of the problem had cystocopy and found cysts in kidney, then developed hypertension but no one will diagnose the pain. Now decided it is the same as diabetic neuropathy but as gp and consultant point out I am a long way from being diabetic with perfect blood glucose so thinks it's just guessing and hope
