I have been taking the remeron for a couple of months and love it, but the doctor has added Cymbalta to the mix for nerve pain. I have only been taking it for 3 days but my anxiety has it the roof and it has not touched my pain. I realize it takes a while for it to get in your system but I am not sure I can handle the anxiety. Are these 2 drugs safe to take together? I worry about seratonin syndrome.
Cymbalta and Remeron are often prescribed together. I am assuming that the same prescriber wrote for both( based on your statement of "doctor has added Cymbalta to the mix". The manufacturer does state that steady-state dosing does occur in about 3 days. So my suggestion to you would be to contact your prescriber. This is the not the combination of drugs for your system.
So should I have been getting some relief from the pain by 3 days of taking the cymbalta? And yes, the same doctor is prescribing both medications. I would consider continueing the cymbalta if it helped with the pain but it doesn't seem to be doing anything but cause me more anxiety. I guess the doctor was thinking the remeron would cancel out any anxiety brought on by the cymbalta.
