I just read a couple articles that stated the time is up on Eli Lilly's patent protection on cymbalta here in the USA. Cymbalta is Eli Lilly's most profitable drug but as of this fall the FDA will allow generic cymbalta on the market, It is projected to cost around 25% of the cost of original cymbalta. Eli Lilly has already proposed laying off around 30% of its production staff as the generic hits the market. I am glad that Eli Lilly will suffer economic losses but I hate to see it become easier and cheaper to buy cymbalta. This site will surely just keep growing in size.

    I need help and I know I will feel better if I can offer help to others

Yes it is sad to say that all we can do is make sure there is enough information here for those that will follow us to help them get off.

We can have an effect on how our own doctors and pharmacist deal with patients who need to get off it as well as long as we have a good relationship with them. I know for myself that once I get my irritability and temper more under control I will be talking to my doctor about how severe the symptoms were and what helped me.

 If we step up and present our stories, we can make a small change and a small change is better than no change at all.
