> I am currently going through a miserable time which I attribute to a combination of Desyrel and Cymbalta. I have been on only 20mg of Cymbalta for over a week and have had terrible agitation, headaches, neck stiffness, muscle tremors, dry mouth, elevated BP (at 30mg, so I decreased it to 20mg and now my BP is normal).

I would cut out the Desyrel, add some Ambien for a month or two if you feel you could use it, and up the dose of Cymbalta to 60mg within a week's time, the standard practice.

Cymbalta seems more promising than Desyrel, it just appears that the combo is causing the side effects. Desyrel alone I doubt would help too much. Insomnia and other side effects from Cymbalta generally go away over time. Go beyond 60mg if you don't notice a response by the 4th week. And hang in there.
