Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Also take 50 mg levosynthroid, multivitamins
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Depression a bit better but not a lot. Memory lapses since taking cymbalta. Tried to very slowly stop (from 60mg every day to 60 one day and 30 one day, but dizziness and that "head in an vise " feeling got much more pronounced and I moved back to 60 every day. I would ilke to stop cymbalta but seems so difficult if not impossible due to side effects.
From this study (1 month ago):
severe vertigo for about 2 years.stress makes it worse.if i can keep my head still and dont move or lean my head backwards it will stop.Has lasted for 2 or 3 weeks at a time.Been so bad that i couldnt even walk.
