i just received a prescription of cymbalta 30mg (once a day)

This answer was rated:

i just received a prescription of cymbalta 30mg (once a day) and klonopin .5 mg(once a day). There is somewhat of a language barrier between me and my Dr. , but i think she said to take them at night time. Is this correct or was it one at night time one during the day? Any help would be muuuch appreciated as I am trying to curb recent panic attacks.

Dear miguel,


Greetings and welcome to justanswer,


do you have the prescription slip right now?

What is the written on the prescription after the drug name and dosage?


Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I did not get the prescription slip back. It just says to take once daily for each.

Dear miguel,


Thank you for the information,


You may take the drug at night before bedtime as this will be helpful in inducing sleep also.The drug does causes drowsiness so the morning and daytime should be avoided as it may make you feel sleepy.


Let me know if you have any doubt.


Thank you!

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I am sorry to reply, but am i correct that you are talking about taking both meds together at night?

Dear miguel,


Thank you for the enquiry and clearing your doubt,


The clonopin and cymbalta may be taken together at night since there is no significant drug intercation between the two drugs.


Let me know if you have any doubt.


Thank you!.
