Transition from Paxil to Cymbalta....
Heh, I am actually posting in this thread. After over 14 years of using Paroxetine/Paxil, my doctor officially said "find another medication"....I run 18 miles a week and still gained 12 pounds in the last 18 months alone (only losing 2). Overall, I gained 55 pounds over the 14 years. He indicated I "should" get off the med 18 months ago, but it became "must" this time.
So....my psych doc is transitioning me to Cymbalta - so I won't have the severe brain zaps and withdrawals from Paxil.
Has anyone been on these medications and can tell me what to expect with Cymbalta? I hope to lose at least half of the weight I gained on Paxil.
.....shockingly, I still look fit (not stereotypically obese at 6'3"), but over the years the weight can take a toll on the body. I ain't gettin' any younger and am on low dose blood pressure medication due to the weight.
You are a success story waiting to happen!
