      It didn’t do much for me except make me walk more like I was intoxicated (dizzy). I tried Lyrica and dealt with the same issues so I stopped entirely.

      It never worked at all. I gained 30 pounds from it

      Yeah cymbalta hasn’t helped me with pain either just the nausea, which is nice but not enough. I take tramadol too for intense acute pain!

      I actually take Tramadol but good to know that Gabapentin helps. I used to take Cymbalta but it didn’t help me with pain

      Pretty significantly helped!! Best pain management I’ve had and I’m trying to get switched back to it right now! Do be careful about higher doses though 600-700 mg was safe for me (all people are ofc different) once I got up to 800-900mg a day my body felt the best it had in a good while, not 100% but maybe 60%!! But on that higher dose I started getting depression and suicidal thoughts out of nowhere and my doctor switched me right off and it went away… so did my pain relief:( so after trying several other options including lyrica (would NOT recommend didn’t help at all and made nausea worse), and cymbalta (not bad but only helped with nausea) I’m bout to start taking gabapentin and lyric together for the nausea relief alongside pain management
