Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Well, i would not suggest 90 mg of cymbalta all at one time , as it is a fairly high dose to be taken at one time , and may cause side effects , so i suggest that you split the dose in such a way that you take 30 mg in morning and 60 mg at night , before bed time ( suggesting 60 mg at night because cymbalta has a sedative action, and thus it aids in sleeping )
I hope this helps..
I wish you all the best..
Well, normally 60 mg dose of cymabalta is prescribed as a single night dose before sleep , and this takes care of the depression throught the next day , while in your case you will not only be taking the night dose of 60 mg , but in addition a morning 30 mg , so the overall effect of cymbalta will be there throught the day , and no it will not wear off after 8 or 9 hours .So, you can start on this split dosage , and i am quite positive that this will not let the depression seep in .
Thank you. I will follow your advice. One last question. I have been taking Cymbalta for a few years trying to find the optimum dose. At first, I started with 60, then 90, then 120, then back to 90, then the current 60. While 120 relieved the depression, I found that I had a lot of nervous twitching and occasional stumbling and tripping. Have you hear of that before?
I think 90 will prove to be the best dose for me.
Well, such nervous twitching , stumbling and tripping due to dizziness , anxiety are the side effects of cymbalta at high doses such as 120 mg / day , on which you were placed back then and you did not tolerate this high dose and hence the side effects were produced , but i believe 90 mg dose suits you the best and so you shall start on it , in the manner explained above.
