How can I continue my treatment for Cymbalta as I am unable to get prescription for the same ?

I recently moved to New Mexico from California and have not been able to reach my physician in California to obtain a refill Rx for Cymbalta. Both my pharmacy and I have left him numerous messages. I have not been able to establish myself with a physician here yet due to snafu s related to insurance, but I do have an appointment scheduled for April. The problem is, I am going through major Cymbalta withdrawl and can t get a prescription! I have taken this medication for many years. My medical group does have an urgent care clinic , but I was already told by phone that they would NOT give me a Rx for Cymbalta as that must be ordered by whatever doctor I establish myself with, but again, that is not until April. What about continuity of care issues? What the heck can I do? Any ideas?

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic, "Cymbalta" is a "S" category medicine in most countries of the world, i.e. it can only be sold by a real Pharmacist upon production
of Really real Prescription and the ins and out have to be submitted to FDA on daily basis, hence until you have proper prescription no one will sell you, i am sorry, but this is as things stand currently my advise would be to go get a proper prescription.

Regards.
