I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts or experiences with Cymbalta for pain management. I am currently on a tramadol/NSAID regimen that works ok however I would like to not have to take the tram. I find I can take much less of it (about 1 to 1.5 pills a day of Ultracet 37.5 mg) but find I am chemically dependent on it besides needing it for the back pain. I would like to rid myself of it....also I am feeling depressed and really down of late. I was wondering if Cymbalta is worth a try at this point.
If no one has real pain improvmenet from it, than I would stick with the tram, get another AD, since I know the tram is working. I just am getting nervous about my system "needing" it.
Am I being silly? Is Cymbalta worth asking my medical doctors about?
Thank you in advance.
