... Cymbalta goes off patent the end of this year, so soon there will be an affordable generic. It has been a great med for my small fiber neuropathy. - Ruby (5 replies)
... Hi there, Yes Cymbalta and Lyrica put a "hole in my pocket" as well. In Europe Cymbalta's generic name is Duloxetine and Lyrica's is Pregabalin. When traveling there I hope to stock up. I will need prescriptions written for these generic drugs which are the same as the "brand" names. I guess I cannot complain too much if it were not for pharmaceuticals this country would...

... Sorry I didn't take the two together but when I was on Cymbalta, it helped me I immensely. I had to stop it bc of insurance. Now I take venlafaxine which works also and isn't as expensive. I take Gabapentin also, 600 a day and it helps. Good luck! (5 replies)
... I have taken upwards of 600mg of Lyrica a day after Gabapentin. I use the Lyrica with 60 mg of Cymbalta and the two work well for neuropathy. The problem some people have is that they run out of "head room" and need stronger meds after a time for the same relief. I have had a spine fusion and before the operation they had me on Lyrica and Oxycodone and that combination works... (5 replies)
... I can tell you what has worked for me and what hasnt and I've been fighting this for 10 years now so I've tried all the meds a couple of times and different dosages and different combinations of these drugs. I hated Cymbalta, it didn't help much and it made me feel really strange. Sevella made part of my arms go num so I quit it quickly. Neurontin was ok but I was up to 2400... (5 replies)
... Hi, I am new to this forum. I was diagnosed with diabetic peripheral neuropathy in August of 2012. I was put on Gabapentin and Nortriptylene. I am at 600 mg three times per day of Gabapentin and was only on 10 mg of notriptylene. (sorry about the spelling) I went off the nortriptylene two weeks ago, as my therapist wants me to go on Cymbalta for depression as well as nerve... (5 replies)

... Hi You have me concerned, as someone said earlier on this board,PN is not a disease. Has your Neuro looked into what is causing your pain. I am on the MS journey. Take care (9 replies)
... Just an FYI...Gabapentin is another name for the brand name Neurontin and Pregabalin in another name for the brand name Lyrica. I LOVE Lyrica. I started out on the highest dose (300mg X 2) and had wierd side effects at first. I was drowsy but had nightmares when I slept. I kept dreaming that I couldn't move...like I was stuck inside my body and couldn't get out). I was... (9 replies)
... I have pn and I am on four different meds for pain, I don't really think the meds do me much good. I still can't talk over 4 feet, before I am on the floor with so much pain. I use a electric wheelchair because I have it in my legs,feet, arms,hand. Good luck to you all I pray I can cope with this pain, I have had almost as I can stand, Lonnie (9 replies)
... Ladybug, I know that anxiety aggrevates PN & I wonder if the diagnosis is worrying your mother. Perhaps something like Xanax (in small doses) would calm her & relieve the PN pain. I have had great success with Lyrica but be careful with this. In my experience it dulled my thinking, I only take it at night for that reason, but if one doesn't have to drive, etc., it's the...

... HI I am almost to my third year of PN, idiopathic, I was started on gabapentin and it brought relief but the brain fog and loss of sensation in my arms made it impossible to titrate up. Last May my neuro wanted me to try Cymbalta so I did, I couldn't handle the gastro problems it caused and began to lose weight because I was sick constantly. I took myself off and back on the...

... My doctor gave me LYRICA, starte at 75mg 2x a day, then uped it to 150mg 2x a day. It says the worst side effect is drowsiness, I couldn't tell you about that. I have always suffered from fatigue. But, I don't think my fatigue has worsened in any way, if that helps. I do know that the pain has no sharpness to it, and I don't well up with tears when I walk. I used to. (9 replies)
... For the moment her neuro should concentrating on pain relief, there is a lot of people that can't handle Neurotin including myself but there are heaps of meds that do help PN like Trammadol SR and some anitdeppressants can help, finding the right one or mostly a combination of meds to help your mum whilst the neuro that needs to be a neuro that is very experienced and...

... I used to take Neurotin too - was up to 2700mg per day when my dr tried a different drug. I have had a lot of relief from the neuropathy by taking Topamax-150 mg twice a day. Only side effect I have had is a little drowsiness. And after I got used to taking it that went away. Started with 25mg and worked up to 150mg to find dose that helped me. Hope this helps.

... Don't worry about the MRI. If your not priority, I would say they are not too worried. Did they say anything about peripheal neuropathy? ... (25 replies)
... Yes, although i'm no medial professional, I think you are right body weight has something to do with dosage needs. Sadly, Peripheral Neuropathy ( PN ) is NOT a disease. That's why there is no one defiante cure for everyone. PN is an overall descriptive term to loosly describe a lot of diff sensations. Within the general over-all defiantion of PN are sub definations and... (9 replies)
