Can anyone offer feedback about Cymbalta or Wellbutrin for treatment of nerve pain? I am no longer getting any relief from opiod pain meds and had no success with Lyrica.

Hi Just me,
First of all let me say I am very sorry you are experiencing pain. I have been as well for fibromyalgia.
I have been taking Hydrocodone for pain, and still do, but it just isn't enough to deal with the level of pain I have without overdoing, in my opinion.
I really don't like drugs, and I certainly don't like anti-depressants, since I took them a number of years ago for clinical depression and they did NOTHING.
Anyway, my Dr wanted me to go on Zoloft, and Trazadone. I did try, but couldn't tolerate them so stopped after a few days.
The idea with anti-depressants is they are supposed to raise your seretonin levels and that's supposed to not only bolster mood but help with pain. Yea, right. Well, I don't think they help serious pain.
I went online searching for natural alternatives, and found that St. John's wort, and other natural herbs and supplements do the same thing naturally without the side effects. I also take Tumeric, Ginger Root for inflammation. And some other supplements and herbs unique for my problems.
Yours will probably be different and you will need to do some serious study to see what might work for you. Won't hurt, and just might help.
One med you might ask your doctor about is Gabapentin,(Neurontin) if you have nerve pain, but I would certainly look up potential side effects because they ALL have them.
Pharmaceuticals are a plague. Please be very careful in what you choose. I sometimes have thought my doctor considers me her personal guinea pig. So I check EVERYTHING OUT, and take nothing just on a DR's say so.
I really do not like anything that dulls my mind or makes me feel loopy.
God bless you, and come to think about it, He's what and who seems to help me the best!

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#nkzt for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

A threat to your safety in a marketing ploy. Pharmaceuticals of this type are illegal to sell without a license and note the product is no mentioned.

Hydrocodone can cause respiratory problems so caution is needed.
I have had some success in using DLPA with prescribed medication.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.
