cymbalta quit working for depression showing as anger. changed to pristiq which work for depression but had the most painful fibromyalgia episode I have had in years. wondering what I can take that would work for both conditions
I have been on Cymbalta for about 5 years and it helps greatly with my fibromyalgia pain, but does NOTHING for my depression and anxiety. Would Pristiq be a medication that can be added to my Cymbalta and if so, what are the chances that this medication would help my depression and anxiety?
