Hi Elizabeth @ess77. I was reading your post and would like to inquire. You seems to have had some success on Cymbalta. I presently am taking Gabapentin 300mg 3x daily. I attempt to increase but the side effects are not great and my neurologist feels that I am needing to change meds to see if I can increase to a higher dosage that brings some relief. I have wide spread small fiber neuropathy – still going through testing to determine if there is a cause. Today I was offered Lyrica and Cymbalta. I went with the Lyrica because my lower does cause no side effects which seemed to be the lesser of the two. My biggest fear on either is gain weight. I worked hard to take off weights about 8 years ago and don't want to gain. I have been healthy and highly activity until Nov 2020. Major life change with acute now chronic burning, numbing pain everywhere. Could you please share your experience with Lyrica and how Cymbalta is better for you. I have yet to get the new RX for the Lyrica but I am hesitate going on it. Thank you! Kelsey

@kelsey1234 @ess77 I was told that Lyrica works in the same way as Gabapentin, while Cymbalta works in an entirely different way.
