Out Of Cymbalta And Drive A Truck, Help!
Posted 28 July 2012 - 05:24 PM
I have been taking Cymbalta for about 2 years now for shoulder pain, depression and anxiety. I have also had to change jobs because of my medical issues. After finally finding a solution that worked, I started a new job. But at the cost of changing insurance. Which has made my wife and my meds astronomical until my new insurance kicked in next month.
Anyhow, I now drive a tractor trailer. And over the last couple weeks I have been running low on Cymbalta until a few days ago. Now I am completely out! And I need to find a way to get through the dizziness, mood swings, and brain zaps (I assume that's the sound I'm hearing when I move my eyes quickly). This has happened before, so I kind of know what to expect. But I can't afford to sit 1000 miles from home if I get too bad.
So I want to know if there is something to get to deal with this, or at least reduce the severity. When I'm sitting and driving I'm ok, but when I have to get out of the truck or even walk, it sometimes hits me like a ton of bricks! I really don't want to be a hazard on the road either. Bad thing is, I'm the only source of income for my family and if my wheels aren't turnin', I'm not earnin'.
Any inexpensive suggestions would be great! Better yet, if I can pick the stuff up in a truck stop that would help too.

But the noise when I move my eyes and dizziness are the worst part.
I'm sure I'll manage eventually, it's just getting there is rough.

As soon as I can get in to my doc I will see if there is something else I can do for my pain and get off of Cymbalta altogether.
