I went to my Dr. yesterday. I had to get the OK from him to do the Cymbalta clinical trial. He said that he had been using it with some of his other patients for the last few months and had GREAT results. He told me that if I could go thru the study and get it for free for over a year that I should go for it. It is going to take me 6 weeks to get off the Effexor XR and the Trazodone. Maybe I can get out of this FOG that i've been in since I started with the Effexor. Someone ask me in another post 'why didn't I just ask for a perscription for Cymbalta rather than do the trial?'. I think it would be good just to get a different Dr. point of view besides my PCP. Don't get me wrong, Dr Flowers is a good doc that I really like but he's only a regular MD not a specialist. I've been to 2 Rheumies and didn't care for either one of them. My reg. doc did more for me than they did. He is the one that first diagnosed me after I had been to a Rheumie, an algery speciallist, and another reg MD which did not have a clue. This also sounds like a lame reason but my hubby has always wanted to go on a cruise. We could not afford it, but when I get the $600+- from the study I'm going to use it to give him a belated '20 Anniversay' cruise. He has always been there for me and helps me so much.
