> After reading product literature it said that over 60mgs was no better so I started going down on dose.
I've heard that too and questioned my pdoc about it. Her coworker did some trials on higher doses and had favorable results. The lower doses just didn't work on me so we thought we'd give it a try. It may be like other drugs where the initial max dose was raised over time.
> Can you tell me if you had side effects when starting or now, and what were your symptoms when you started Cymbalta.
I had a slightly queasy stomach initially but it was nothing that was too bothersome. I also thought that I had urinary retention but I don't have it now. The only thing I notice now are slight occasional jerking of limbs when I lay down...similar to the ones that occur right before one falls asleep. Once again, not too bothersome. I also have a type of hot flash where I get expremly warm for a bit. Not sure if this is the cymbalta or not. I'm way too young to be having the menopausal hot flashes.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else.
