I have been told by a neurologist that i may have a very mild case o ms and maybe fybromyalgia.I have been taking cymbalta and gabapentin for about 18 months. it does not seem to help me that much,Iwas taking 60 mg for a while and stated having a lot of body movement on its own.The doctor took me down to 30 mg.it has been a while now and I am still having body movement.I have very bad muscle cramps to. I have a lot of trouble concetrating at work,I have to type in a lot of information for my customers.Some days I i have no trouble,but when i am having a bad day with whatever wrong with me,i struggle doing my job.One customer said everything i did was on a 30 second delay.do you think this is what is wrong with me or is it the medicine.I decided to get off of it for a while to see how it goes.My doctor says for me just to stop the gabapentin and take the gabapentin every other day until i am out.last year he told me a different way to stopp taking the cymbalta if i decided to quit.He said i should take one every other day for aweek,then one every two days for a week,until i get to one every seven days.which way would you suggest and why would he tell me two different things.I have heard alot of bad things about withdrawels from this on the internet.what can i expect. i just started tuesday,so far i have had some diarreha and anxiety.
Thanks for your reply, i made a mistake in my question. He told me to stop taking the gabapentin immediately. he said to take the cymbalta every other day until i was out. last year he told me if i quit it i should take the cymbalta every other day for seven days,then every two days for seven days,then every three and so on until it was every seven days.so i was wondering what you thought about why he told me two different ways to stop the cymbalta.
