Any one on CymGen 30mg (Cymalta) and how long can one stay safely on it. Venlor did not agree with me (i think Effexor is the other name for Venor) I still get very anxious and use Xanor and a tablet under my tongue (cant find the packaging) off hand
Any comments appreciated.
I am not sure how to answer your question. Are you saying that you use Xanax perhaps…for anxiety? I am not sure what sort of sublingual tablet you are also using.
First let me give you the official site for Cymbalta so you can read up on this medication.
Are you using Cymbalta to treat depression? On this drug site they say that you should give it several months or more but there really isn’t much on long term effects or safety.
Here is our member medication review of cymbalta with user experiences.
NAMI reports that there are no known risks to taking Cymbalta for a long time.
I do see some things in the literature, however, that weaning from this medication can be difficult. But this is the case for many antidepressants.
Let us know if you need further assistance and thank you for your question.
