From this study (13 months ago):
When I started tapering on to Riboflavin at 100 mg increase per week until @ 400 mg/day was having a lot of trouble with night sweats, and very numerous, vivid, strange dreams every night. After discussions with my pharmacist it was deduced that the Riboflavin was being taken 4 times a day resulting in direct proximity to Cymbalta at bedtime causing the Cymbalta side effects to manifest. Changed Riboflavin to all 400 mg in the morning, which fixed the problem immediately. Have now started taking 10 mg Melatonin at bedtime per Neurologist specializing in Chronic Migraines and now the night sweats and dreaming issues are back! Obviously, I cannot change the timing of the Melatonin but what would the result be of changing what time I take the Cymbalta (120 mg)?
