Anyone take these two together. Both are blood thinners so I am concerned. I have been on Cymbalta for a long time. I took the Zorovolex and had brain zaps later in the afternoon. I have had a virus as well so im not really sure if I had a reaction or not. I am scared to try it again.

I am 59 years old and was prescribed Humera 3 months ago for very bad ulcerative colitis. After tapering off Prednisone, I have since developed acne! Something that I have not had to deal with since my twenties! Has anyone else had this experience and found a way to successfully end the acne?
