    Hi there: I have been on Milnacipran for 7 weeks now. For the first two days I was absolutely pain free. To me it was a miracle. As the days went on I was getting less relief and at the present I am getting no relief. I went to a massage therapist 3 times and I think that made my legs worse. Is there anyone out there who has been on it for about 8 weeks and it is working for them. Please reply. Thank you.

    for you!

    Lalaina, have you tried doing a search up above in the box for this site? You might find some info that way too.

    All the best,

    of a year-long study on Milnacipran. I agree that I felt better at first.

    I think I was on 100 mg a day the first six months. I started to feel worse again after a few weeks but not as bad as I had.

    I sometimes wonder if I overdid it because I was feeling well and paid for it later.

    The past five months (one month to go) I have felt a lot less pain. I feel I am now on 200 mg a day now.

    I still have fatigue but the pain is less until the end of the day and I have some shoulder and upper back pain.

    I am wondering how I'm going to do when Oct 3rd comes and I am put on Cymbalta. I hope it works too.

    This disease is so frustrating.
