I was wondering if any one takes there meds at dffernt times. for example i can normall only stomach 30mg tablets so have been asked to take 30mgs in the morning and another 30mgs later in the day. was wondering if any one else does this and what the outcome was.

I guess all you can do is try this. I know when I first went ont his meds, 30mg. was the start up dose and it was rather hard on my stomach. I'll have to go back and review my posts to see what happened, as I remember it was a hard start. I just wanted you to know that someone is always lurking around here, as this room has been quiet for sometime.

Where did everyone go, lol! :hearts:

I read where I was taking stomach acid reducers after I started 60mg. to get through the start ups.

Anyone else out there still on Cymbalta?

I could only stomach 20 mg. when I first started. After the side-effects eased, I moved it up to 30 mg. This seems to be working for me, although I'd try ramping up the dose again if the depression worsens.

If the every-other day approach doesn't work but you need to work up to 60 mgs., you could talk to your doc about moving up to 40 mg. for a while, then 50, then 60, ramping up each time after the side-effects calm down. Just a thought...
