Lirica vs Cymbalta
I had multiple horse incidents as a kid and early teens--bucked off--bitten--kicked--stepped on, I live i the city now! My neck and lower spine were irreparably damaged.
I have been on Gabapentin for years now and the good 'ol doctor wants to add Lyrica. I have read enough here to want to change my mind. She wants to start me at 150mg twice a day and work up from there instead of at the higher dose first. Do you think it would have worked better for you this way? I am on so many pain med

Lisa, this sounds like more than a depression for the realm of family and friends, though a listening ear from someone close is still invaluable. I have some questions to ask you before I give the rest of my comments. Respond here that you got this and we can continue this privately.

Lisa, if you are feeling depressed you should reach out to family or friends. Do you have anyone you can talk to?

I've found it is better to take Ambien on an empty stomach. I am able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep. If I take the Ambien on a full stomach it just puts me in a comfortable doze.
