So, I have a rare medical condition and I have a pain support doctor and she prescribed me Cymbalta for neuropathy. She told me my other alternatives was gabapentin or lyrica. Both seem to be worse then Cymbalta but I'm worried about withdrawals. Any suggestions?

Is it an opiate? If you take it everyday for an extended period you’re gonna get physically addicted there’s no way around it. But if you can limit your use to 3 x a week or something you shouldn’t have much of any trouble with wd

Really your doctor should plan a taper for you so you don’t need to face wd
If not you could use kratom to taper or just get through the week of hell with a bunch of benzos

Not an opiate, it's an antidepressant for neuropathic pain. I figured this would be the closest board though.

I'd rather take pregabalin or gabapentin to be honest. Antidepresants surely have some uses in your case (and in pain treatment in general) but those drugs have too many other effects and uses. I'd treat it as a last resort.

Its molecule is extremely similar, almost the same as Tramadol. But it has no opioid effect. Although, yes, it apparently works for some nerve pain type stuff. But the person I know who is prescribed Cymbalta for her pain issues also is rx'd Metadol 10mg a day (methadone pills, for pain). Of course, she didn't get the opioids right away, it rarely works like that, except if you have some really painful cough and a real bad bronchitis or pneumonia, then codeine 30mg/5ml or hydrocodone 5mg/5ml (pure, at least here, we also have Tussionex with the other shit in it, but I was never prescribed that when I was given Hycodan syrup, never had to ask for it too, I was in awful shape all 3 times).

That shits pure poison. Lyrica is better and you can actually get high on the shit. There's no reason to be prescribing snris for neuropathy. Lyrica will actually help you and won't fry the fuck out of your brain.

All this.
Gabapentin/pregabalin > Cymbalta
HOLY SHIT! If given the choice I would pick gabapentin or pregabalin 10/10 times. Dead serious. Cymbalta has its place in medicine, but I do not want that drug in my bloodstream.

I'm not saying I believe it. But it's in the monograph's main uses other than depression, not even an off-label bullshit thing like trazodone for sleep.
