Hi Barbaracat. This is wonderful news! A few months ago, I tried the 20 mg capsules of Cymbalta. At present, that is the lowest dose available. I was completely dysfunctional (horrific headache that made it impossible to lift my head from the pillow, totally "spaced out" so I couldn't drive) for a couple of days, and once again, I became enraged at these pharmaceutical companies that make it so difficult for those of us who just can't tolerate their so-called "therapeutic" doses. I've had several conversations here with Ritch, who takes a miniscule dose of liquid Celexa and that's what works for him. I think he said he takes 1/2 milligram every other day. Prior to that, he was on a tiny dose of Prozac for several years. Of course, he had to go through lots of adjustments downward from what the manufacturer recommended. As another poster (was it Phillippa?) has said, "One size does NOT fit all!" Now, I'm interested in the method you use to measure the grains or pellets of Cymbalta. Is each grain the same as the next in chemical composition? If they weren't, would they be of different colors? This is giving me hope. I'm in a difficult situation right now, so I may not be able to try Cymbalta again for about a month and a half. Present life events make it difficult to introduce new variables, but I do hope to give your method a try as soon as possible. Please keep us informed.
