From this study (1 month ago):
Four months ago, 10 days after being prescribed 30mg Cymbalta/day I experience vertigo so severe that I had to call 911. Vomiting, room spinning, not able to stand or walk.
The hospital emergency doctors found nothing in my MRI, blood work, ear exams, etc. They gave me an IV, and meds for motion sickness and nausea. They released my the next day. I was still vomiting and spinning. Although, I am not currently spinning, I have not recovered fully. My balance is still very off when walking. My head feels like a watermelon. My ability to walk and drive normal distances is limited. Also my focus and concentration is diminished though improving.
From this study (4 months ago):
I started off by taking Vyvanse 30 mg once daily and it worked great for the first month or so. I felt after some time that my dose could of needed some adjustment so my docotor increased my dose to 50 mg daily. This dose I felt was the dose that initially gave me most benefit from. After about another month or so I started to once again become more and more fatigued during the days and it became harder and harder to concentrate. My dose was just last week changed to take Vyvanse 40 mg once in the mornings (7:30 am) and around 3 pm take a second dose of 20 mg. Since I have started this new regimen, I haven't noticied any improvement and I feel that my fatigue is only getting worse. I now have daily headaches and waves of nausea and dizziness. And also the tips of my fingers and toes feel always constantly cold.
From this study (5 months ago):
recently had dizzy spells which can be incompacitating. Forgetfulness. Hot flashes come and go day and night. Feel crummy.
