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.
