Anyone Take Cymbalta For OA Pain

Anyone Take Cymbalta For OA Pain

I have RA and take Erelzi. I have some days where I have sharp/shooting pain. Doctor says it is from my OA and has prescribed Cymbalta. I have been doing well on Erelzi with only headaches in the beginning. I am afraid to take another medication with such bad side effects. Anyone taking Cymbalta for OA or Fibromyalgia? How is it working and how are you doing with side effects?

How Many People Who Started Taking A Biologic/Biosimilar Medication Are Still Taking Methotrexate With Their Biologic Medication?

I missed a couple doses of Methotrexate and I don't have more RA pain.
