Doctors are more deadly then guns

----------

The (APA) DSM-V is the future version of the Mein Kampf.

Bombs and bullets will be replaced with mind drugs and psychotherapy (false memory) in future generations.

That's certainly what Aldus Huxley predicted with his fictional Soma and it came true

I too have had a horrible time while on cymbalta and have decided to stop after 9 months. I have opened the capsules and taken out some of the pellets now for about 2 weeks and for the last 2 days have been off cold turkey. The side effects are still with me but I'm praying they will go away soon. How long does it take to start loosing the weight from cymbalta ? I have gained 25 ponds while on it and I can't take it. God bless All of you.

Wow, I have read everyones posts and my heart goes out to everyone! I, myself have been on Cymbalta for awhile and due to being laid off from my job and having no medical insurance, I can't afford this very expensive drug. I am onday 8 of not being on Cymbalta and I want to shoot myself in the head. The withdrawals are terrible and I feel so "out of it" depressed and feel like total shit! I'm not going "cold turkey" by choice, that was made for me! All the symptoms of this drug leaving my system are horrible, but I am trusting God to get me through this! I want to be pill free. I agree, Cymbalta is great at stabalizing the "lows" and minor aches and pains, but I just can't deal with all of this....I hope by the end of this coming week (14 days) all side effects will cease and I can hopefully go on without taking any Rx!

Cymbalta is an evil drug. I am prescribed it for a lower back injury I sustained due being being assaulted.
Iím prescribed 60mg a day and have been taking it for just over 6 months. Being cripled with a lower back injury for 2 years and going bankrupt due to not being able to work and pay my bills my Dr believes I now suffer from Major Depression. I feel that Iím only depressed due to these circumstances, becoming disabled, not being able to do much anymore and financial ruin. I have never suffered depression before. My DR insists I continue to take it even tho I am experiencing horrible side effects.
Since taking Cymbalta I now find myself crying randomly daily and feeling like a broken man. I hardly see my friends anymore as I feel like something is wrong with me, Iím embarrassed that they will think I have lost my mind.I dont want them to see me like this. I have become a recluse. I have lost my sex drive and my happy nature.
It has made me feel so depressed, have suicidal thoughts, has killed my motivation and I hardly sleep at night even tho it makes me tired all the time. I toss and turn every night, clench my jaw regulary like it is locked into position and my legs are very restless. I wake up in a pool of sweat every morning even in winter.
My mouth is so dry , I never feel hydrated, hardly eat, but on the positive side it has decreased the amount of cigarettes I smoke from a packet of 20 day to only 5 smokes a day which is good.
I feel so agitated, erratic, highly strung, it makes me talk too much, forgetful, clumsy. I have hot flushes and random episodes of excessive sweating and people look at me strangely when Iím in conversation with them. I get the shakes and feel like I donít own my body. Sometimes I just lay on the sofa and stare blankly into space like a zombie. Time passes me by and I donít even notice or care. Its like the rest of the world doesnít exist. I have never felt like this before.
I have now decided to wean myself off this drug, Iím worried about the withdrawl, its going to be hell but I just want to feel normal again.
Being able to express my feelings here feels like a weight has come off my chest, I canít talk to my friends or family about it , as I have cut off most communication with them due to feeling unwell and being judged, Itís hard to explain whats going on to someone who has never experienced something like this. My Dr keeps telling me to deal with the process, but Iím at my wits end and canít take it anymore.

Who did it to you? They took time from your life. Ruined your natural thinking process. Caused you pain and suffering. Made you a danger to the society and your family in doing things you normally would have never done. Is the mind drugging Republican Political to stop the vote. To make a couch potato . You better get off the drugs because the rich are making money at the coat of your sanity. They are ruining your family. Distroying your soul.

Hang in George, the intensity diminishes over time and some of the symptoms fade away. Weaning is a better approach to cold turkey (which I did)- the isolation is tough, there's really nobody else who we can talk to and worse, the agitation can damage our closest, most important relationships. Know there are people, survivors, who do get it, who appreciate and empathize with your experience. Try to take it in smaller, day-at-a-time chunks because it's too dark to see my farther down the road and that can just add to the turmoil. You can do no more than the best you can. Journaling can help - I started to blog during my withdrawal and while I found solace in the forums I also found the stories of suffering a bit too heavy much of the time - there's a useful forum called cymbaltawithdrawal.com and my blog is cymbaltawillhaltya.wordpress.com - you've just gotta' keep on with whatever you've got and hope for a better tomorrow....it will arrive.

There is an attempt to limit pain pills like hydrocodone for Cymbalta which is a more of an addicting drug and comes with more serious withdrawal symptoms. That is why there is an increase in the sales of Cymbalta because your local doctor is being straight with you.. Patient becareful.

One problem that the local'doctor has is the medical electronic records pushed for by the Republican party (ALEC)

Electronic Medical Records

Don't overlook that Mental Health evaluations are part of the Electronic Health Records (EHR) in the USA and Electronic Patient Record (EPR) in Europe and Austrelia and that represents a means of distribution among the political ill intent of the medical and psychological, policing / legal and Governmental agencies including educational systems worldwide for social control.

Even the "on the spot" evaluation and opinion of your demeanor and your "tip of the tongue statement" at the appointment of the local MD will reside in the records to which you will have limited or no access.

Your life could depend on these statements within the closed secretative medical organization during medical services including operations and drug prescriptions and if the doctor doesn't comply then he'll lose his hospital privilages and certainly a doctor without hospital suppport isn't going to be worth much in medicine.

Certainly the Medical Oath to do no harm has been violated in the past considering the number of deaths including mind drugging of the public and its most vunerable members, the elderly and the children.

It may be noteworthy to understand that the Electronic Records would align and create the unity of opinion for the psychological services that have no medical science and are based on hearsay for court proceedings and lawsuits and allow other persons (unknown) to read, make and to invade and influence opinions on a person without knowledge of that person direct. Lots of laughs around the water cooler in the DA's office or in chamber of the judicial judge or your local medical doctors office...

Of interest is the taxpayer funding of billions of dollars for this Republic Constitutional intrusion for power and control of the USA in the Republican New World Order.

Think of how the Pharmacutical Industry will now control medicine. Thisnwill be so much more effective then the Pharmacutical sales rep and the doctor.

Cymbalta has been a God send. I started at 30mg and ended up at 60mg. It has been the only thing that stopped my neuropathic pain!! I have only had dry mouth and constipation. I have stopped this med abruptly as well and had no ill effects. Not even heavy narcotics relieved my pain like Cymbalta. I pray they don't remove it..

Sounds like your getting a head job from the pharmacutical / mental health industry and disability payments from the government. Too many horror report on withdrawal in using the mind drugs especially Cymbalta. Did you read about the deaths and the woman that died during research and the coverup.

Pharmacutical Marketing is so involved in capitalism that the industry and its cousin, the crimes and attrocities of modern medicine along with the (No Science) Mental Health Industry could care less about the health and welfare of the public to the profits. The politicians are looking for the handsouts and backpocket payments and are not going to regulate the industries regardless of the public outcry and number of deaths.

Indeed each person reacts differently to the medications that he or she takes. There are people that may benefit from the drug while there are others who do not. Every medication has its own set of risks. See http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com

I weaned off of Cymbalta after taking it for 5 months & I can verify the stories on here about horrible withdrawal. They DO go away; it just takes time. Unfortunately, this is the only drug my doctor is willing to give me for my possible fibromyalgia. It doesn't work all that well. I still needed pain control. Anyway, stay away if you can.

IMO I would get rid of the doctor . Sounds like he's into addiction and profits.
