So this is my second time trying Cymbalta. I was on it about 6 months ago and didn't think it did much for my pain. My PMD then had me try Savella which I did not do well on, so back to Cymbalta. Now I have realized that it does help with my anxiety but I really think I crave alcohol when I am on it. I am not a big drinker, but last time I was on it I started to crave it. When I went off of the Cymbalta the craving went away. Now that I am back on it, I feel the crave again. I know this sounds weird, just wandering if this is all in my head or if there is something here? I do control the cravings, like I said... not a big drinker. Maybe a glass of wine or a beer here and there, but now I have that craving everynight, when generally I don't???
