  • Meds are not ridding me of headaches or migraines, & now I have insomnia & acne! :( No longer on Verapamil or Simvistatin, just over one yr now. Off of Amitriptalyne since August, off of Celexa since Sept/October... allergies & insomnia crept up during transition from Amitriptaline/Celexa to Cymbalta.

Dont eat much not that im not hungry but because i just dont feel like getting up.it hurts to much to get up to do it. Ive been getting more acne now then I did when I was a teenager. its in my hair and makes me itch.
