    I like to go for long bike rides on scenic trails. I enjoy reading. I am fond of Coen brothers movies and fiction by Cormac McCarthy. I love the Springtime and the longer days that come with it.

  1. Torrent came from rite aid in Pennsylvania.
  2. The manufacturer of my generic Cymbalta is Torrent. And thank you for the information Sayonara! Gary
  3. I started taking the generic Cymbalta about a month ago. It's still costing me a lot per month - $70. I too have increased anxiety and ruminating thoughts since I started the generic. Not sure what to do. Gary
  4. I suffer from depression and for many years. I've been on most depression meds and am currently doing Cymbalta 60mg with trazodone, klonopin andf ambien for sleep. I divorced my wife of 26 years back in March 2012 and have since re-married my college girlfriend who left her husband and kids and moved 2,000 miles to be with me. We married in June 2012. She has been with me here in PA since December 2011. My wife and I are both 51. Long story short. My wife has an extensive sexual past including her ex-husband and others prior to him and before and after our relationship back in the 1980's. I am struggling with ruminating about her previous relationships and can't get a handle on it. I am experiencing severe jealousy over her past. Adding to my troubles, I lost my job back in September, and have way too much time on my hands. Anybody else have issues with ruminating? What has helped? Thank you.
  5. Happy Birthday! :) Hope you have/had a great day!

  6. Thank you for your replies and words of wisdom. I take the 60mg of Cymbalta in the morning when I wake up. Also, I take 10mg of Ambien, 100mg of trazadone and 0.5mg klonopin at bedtime. And another question for you guys out there. What about the ED? Does it get better and if so, how long does it take for things to work normal down there? Gary
  7. I have been on 30mg of Cymbalta for about 6 weeks. Just this week my doc increased my dosage to 60mg. I am noticing a spike in my anxiety with panic as well. Also and even with ambien, I am waking at 3AM and having difficulty falling back to sleep. I am taking klonopin 0.5mg to conteract the anxiety but it is not helping much. Is my reation to the increased dosage typical? Any advice is appreciated. Gary
  8. I cried yesterday as I was on the highway driving home from a weekend trip. I was feeling overwhelmed by the finacial pressures of having two kids in college, an aging mother, and generally feeling depressed and anxious. I was also reflecting upon mistakes that I've made in my life and the consequences that sometimes follow you for a long, long time.
  9. I stopped taking nefazadone on Friday March 12th. It was making me sick with anxiety. So now I am back on 30mg Cymbalta and 2.5 mg Abilify. It was a rough weekend with the stopping and starting of meds. I slept as much as possible to get through it. Today so far I feel better.
  10. It has now been 5-weeks on nefazadone. It has been 1-week since I went from 200mg to 400mg per day. I am having quite a bit of anxiety and some panic attacks. My doc suggested that I increase the klonopin to 2-3 0.5mg tabs up to 3X per day as needed. So far I have increased the klonopin to 1 0.5mg tab three times per day and it does seem to be helping. I am concerned that the anxiety is coming from the nefazadone itself or it just is not working for me. My doc says that I may be experiencing withdrawal from Cymbalta and Abilify, causing the anxiety and panic. So I keep walking by faith hoping that the nefazadone kicks in pretty soon. In the meantime I am tired and weary.
  11. I take Klonopin as well but not often enough! Feeling good today. How are you doing? Sent you a PM. Gary
  12. Getting really badly naseated after my morning dose if I take the nefazodone on an empty stomach. Also having alot of anxiety since stopping Cymbalta and starting nefazodone. Better days ahead. Gary
  13. Thibault Yes let's do keep in touch. Today is not such a good day, with work pressures at a high level. Oh the joys of the corporate world. I am continuing to have interupted sleep during the night. It is probably from stopping Cymbalta. I am tired and weary...But this too shall pass, right? I am concerned about the sexual side affects of nefaodone. I want to rid myself of the ED from other meds...Only time will tell... Gary P.S. 30 inches of snow on the ground here in PA with no sunshine for weeks. Can anybody say Key West...
  14. I too am taking nefazodone. I started it about 10-days ago. It is replacing Cymbalta and anafranil. I am taking 100mg two times per day until I see my pdoc early in March. I also take ambien, trazodone and klonopin at night. I have noticed that I am not sleeping as well taking the nefazodone at night. I do seem calmer and somewhat brighter, however it is early and I am "coming off"of other meds. I am hopeful. SSRI's did not work well for me or the side affects were intolerable.
  15. Anafranil really helped my depression and anxiety and OCD symptoms. However, I recently stopped taking it because I gained 25-pounds in 8-weeks and suffered from ED.
