  • 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.

Cannot concentrate to get work done. Feel ill. Altered time perception-used to be early for everything, now late. Hurt all over still in my joints. started hands and feet, then moved to hips, then all joints. seems to move at times from hands and feet to hips. if weather is bad--i hurt worse.
