Re: [IP] Cymbalta vs. Other Off-Label DPNP Drugs



Hi,
I have been on cymbalta for about one month.  I started with a 30mg tablet
once a day and then after 14 days my endo upped it to 60mg per day.  I have
the neuropathy located primarily on the bottom of my feet(particularly in
the fatty pads on the ball and heel)  It has been very much better since I
started taking cymbalta.  I could never walk on a vinyl or hardwood floor
without pain and now it is at least tolerable.  It's still too early to tell
but so far it is helping me.
I also have gastroperesis and am taking regalan for it.  There has been no
GI negative reactions so far.  It's only been on the market since Sept of
last year yet my endo thought it would be better than neuronton for me.
I'll let you know as I get further along.
Bob
