You might try Horse Chestnut extract capsules which is used widely in Europe for circulation. There are other natural supplements as well to improve circulation without the dangerous side effects of Cymbalta, which also causes weight gain as most of these horror drugs do!

Suggest you do a google and see what you come up with. All the orthodox doctors will give you is what they've been trained to do....and it fixes NOTHING, and screws up a lot of things maybe permanently.

Cymbalta messes with your brain chemistry and pattern. That's like of crazy to be taking things that alter your brain...right? Doctors are insane to even prescribe this stuff.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
