Thank you for your response. One additional piece of information, in 1964 at the age of 9 I had a non-cancerous thyroidectomy. Although tests show normal, I do know there is some connection between thyroid and fibro. I do try to stretch and usually must stretch before I am even able to sleep. I did fairly well with the fibro with the Cymbalta but it just made me 'not feel' and I never really felt all that happy, just maybe not depressed. So I wanted to get off the Cymbalta (against doctor's wishes) but the only way to see if I still need medication is to get off of it and then see what happens.
I do think I need medication. I am getting minor panic buildup when it starts to get dark. I do need cognitive therapy but am not doing that right now. I just called doc and he put me on Prozac but I don't think it is enough.
So you think perhaps I would use Prozac and Effexor - or Effexor and Cymbalta?
