Patient : I take Cymbalta, but I ran out yesterday and didn't get it filled until this evening. I took only one pill this morning (20mg of my regular 60) and figured I would just wait and take my normal dose tomorrow morning. The problem is now I feel nauseated and lightheaded, and started seeing spots like I am getting a migraine. I have had them periodically in the past and I have some Maxalt. My question is, should I take the Maxalt if I am going to take my regular dose of Cymbalta in the morning? OR should I just take the rest of the Cymbalta dose from today now, and delay the morning dose? I don't want to take too many serotonin enhancing drugs at once, so I am not sure what I should do.
