I talked to my doctor about this today, and he thought the capsules themselves were enteric coated. He thought it would probably be ok to dump out half the pellets and put the capsule back together before taking it, but not to take the pellets alone. But this would only work if the capsules are 2-part, not if they come in one enclosed capsule. Anyone know which way the Cymbalta capsules come? And anyone know how you can get hold of the 20 mg capsules? Someone wrote they were taking them, but I called about 20 pharmicies today. half had never heard of Cymbalta, the other half said they only had the 30 and 60mg capsules. Finally one pharmacist said the company wasn`t distributing the 20 mg capsules yet. I guess I`ll start with the 30 mg capsules, but I`m dreading it so much. It`s like planning a date to get very very sick. I hate Eli Lilly and Co. for being so greedy and not making this med in a way that you can start on a small dose. I know it`s not going to work anyway-I`ve tried at least 30 meds and nothing has ever worked, but it`s like a compulsion, I have to try it, no matter how sick it makes me, just in case it might work.
