Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Indeed a very hard time you are going through.

Cymbalta is not working for you given the worsening of the symptoms.

It should be discontinued by your doctor.

Atypical anti psychotic medications like Abilify can be tried by your doctor which works through dopaminergic and histamine pathways.

Also benzodiazepines should be considered for their fast action.

Clonazepam can be started at 0.5 mg twice daily and dose can be increased further.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
