    Is Cymbalta an effective alternative to Lyrica?

I have recently been diagnosed with neurothy.... I have had MRIs,Meg s and all kind of other tests to diagnosis this. I do not have diabetes or and other disease that would cause this in my buttocks, legs, and feet. My Dr has tried lamictil (itching all over after 3 days, doxepin.... made me sick. I am now on Lyrica.... with many side effects. I m to the point in just going back to Cymbalta 60mg and forgetting these neuroleptic drugs. What is your opinion ? Dennis

Cymblata is a safe and effective alternate to lyrica.

It is more tolerated and safer than lyrica.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
