Neurontin and Cymbalta combo.. new for me and awful.. feedback?
I have been on Neurontin, first at 300mg. for Cervical Nerve pain since 1/22/19 from my Pain Management Doctor.. It makes me really down, very tired, water retention.. last week I had some suicidal feelings.. very scary. Told to go off of it. I was on Pristiq since 4/16, then went off of it at the end of this year.. first reducing dose and then going off of it.. Very hard and and more anxiety, anger, depression. Psych. now has me on Cymbalta, 20 mg. for now.. that is also for the nerve pain from my cervical neck stenosis and 100 mg. of Neurontin. Today, I feel like a total Zombie. .woke up very tired, yesterday, did not eat hardly at all. Woke up with muscles aching all over. It is causing some water retention or it could be the Neurontin, constipation. Very very very down and scared.. I have lost everything.. my career, my retirement funds.. living with an abusive Twin Sister. etc. just shattered from everything. .I am now 60.5 and no one will hire me back.. I am also down due wt. gain. now 158 and starving myself most days.. I took the Genesight test and it said to take Pristiq or Vybrid or a few others.. I HATE all these meds and the horrible side effects!! I feel like my affect is flat today.. I feel like all my motivation and energy are further gone and affected.. any feedback would be greatly appreciated. JMS
