Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta duloxetine side effects


1442059 tn?1340244552 I was on Cymbalta for 5 months. Only side-effects I had was nausea for about 1 week then it went away. Cymbalta was very energetic and helped me going thru the hard time I was dealing when my mom had cancer. When she passed I stopped cold turkey and had brain zaps for 1 month. This drug is very potent and can work very well but it's not a cheap drug and cost a lot. I was very active while being on Cymbalta (going to the gym 3-4 times a week and jogging 45 min everyday) and very outgoing.

Avatar m tn Most of the drugs in that category do increase the odds of weight gain, but it's because you have more urges to eat not the drug just inceases your weight.. Here is the list I found on what works the best vs. the most tolerated drugs - not necessarily better drugs. It was printed in The Lancet, one of the most respected medical journals.
Avatar f tn My blood sugar level dropped 50 points. I know that weaning off of cymbalta causes a myriad of side effects with brain zaps being the worst. I have researched to see if there is a link between coming off of cymbalta and this problem with my blood sugar. The only thing that has changed in my life is the reduction of cymbalta from 1-60 mg pill every day to 1 pill every other day. This week I am dropping to 1 pill every 3 days.
446049 tn?1538871187 While going through chemo, the oxaliplatin masked the pain (one of the only good side effects!) but now it's back and I'm wondering if anyone else has tried using this medication for relief from pain?
962875 tn?1314213636 As many of you know or have experienced, the AIs ( Arimidex, Femara, Aromasin), which are used to treat hormone-receptor positve breast cancer, often produce joint or muscle pain as a side effect. For about 20% of women, the side effects are so severe that they stop taking their medicine, which increases the risk that their breast cancer will recur.
1042487 tn?1275283499 ) However, I do feel adding the melatonin to my other meds/vitamins has helped keep my Fibro flare ups down to a minimum, and helped with the Cymbalta side effects of vivid dreams. Melatonin with Cymbalta? Absolutely!
924711 tn?1290270157 I have used the Cymbalta before and had good results as far as helping FMS. I discontinued it due to its side-effects, even though it helped the pain. You might check out some of the alternative protocols in our Health Pages.

Avatar f tn Doctor never told me about these kind of side effects. My eyes hurt and never have head aches. I feel like I have a whole body flu... yet again. The 5 flu and it last days and days... til I forced to take meds been taking 60mg every day but cut back to 2 or 3 days but 3rd day I am messed up. Cymbalta ***** may help with muscle pains but not worth the headaches and flu withdrawls and burning lips. I am having rash break outs on my ears and chest now too for 3rd time...
Avatar f tn I would question in the first place why Duloxetine is still being prescribed as a treatment drug considering its horrific withdrawls and side effects. Its not intended for use as a BP treatment at all and this is an off label usage. As such and with the many side effects and the withdrawl symptoms one ponders why this is being prescribed to BP's at all, there are safer alternatives including at least one other SNRI in Wellbutrin. How Eli Lilly gets away with this is easy..
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm a 21 year old male who's been taking Cymbalta (duloxetine) for Depression/Headaches. I started off on 30mg and am now on 60mg. I noticed I am showing weird signs of premature ageing, I am lossing alot of hair of head and eyebrows, growing odd grey hairs and have developed a few wrinkles on my forehead and a little loose skin on my body. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed any of these side effects or if it could be something different causing it?
Avatar f tn the same reason why people with mania such as Bipolar sufferers shouldn't take the stuff. Also, I struggled to hell with the side effects of Cymbalta! Coming off of the stuff took me MONTHS - though that is an extreme example, apparently most don't get such issues. So my advice (as not knowing much about the others) is don't go with Cymbalta...
Avatar n tn I am a 50 year old female with a 20 year history of major depression which has been extremely resistant to treatment. About 6 weeks ago I started taking the drug Duloxetine(Cymbalta). I took it for about 3 weeks at 30 mg once a day, then my doctor increased it to 60 mg. My depression is much better and I do not want to stop taking the drug.
Avatar f tn I had to quit the pack right before I finished it because I had thought my tingling was side effects. My doc told me it shouldn't be all one sided. Thank you and God Bless. K.
Avatar n tn I'm taking so many medications I can't tell what my symptoms are, can somebody help?

Avatar f tn i was just prescribed topamax today i also take 60mg duloxetine (cymbalta) once a day ,norco7.5 3xday and one xanax at night is the duloxetine going to clash with the topamax?
Avatar m tn The usual approach is trying a combination of medications from different classes, optimizing their dosages while minimizing side effects, and seeing which combination works best for the individual. The main medication classes for the treatment of depression are Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs – ex. Zoloft [Sertraline]), Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs – ex. Cymbalta [Duloxetine]), Tri-cyclic antidepressants (ex.
Avatar m tn So if Zoloft really don't work i would realy sugest the Cymbalta. Some info on Cymbalta Duloxetine (Cymbalta, Yentreve) is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor manufactured and marketed by Eli Lilly. It is effective for major depressive disorder and it is as effective as venlafaxine in generalised anxiety disorder. It is well tolerated and is considered a first line treatment strategy.
324184 tn?1308079803 She has been on it for 6 days and she has had diarrhea and vomiting for 3 out of those 6 days. Has anyone experienced these types of side effects on Pristiq? I know everyone is different and we're hoping that her body will adjust to it and start working. I'm also wondering if she is sick due to abruptly stopping the Cymbalta (her dr. for whatever reason said she did not need to ween herself off) Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn Pregnancy Category C is given to medicines that show side effects to the fetus in animal studies, but no human studies in pregnant women have been done. A pregnancy Category C medicine may still be given to pregnant women if the healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the pregnant woman outweigh the possible risks to the unborn child. In animal studies, when rabbits were given Cymbalta during early pregnancy, the baby rabbits weighed less.
1323747 tn?1364810482 Side effects of metanx are drowsiness, feeling of swelling of entire body, numbness or tingling, severe allergic reactions like hives. cymbalta or duloxetine has effects like nausea, upper stomach pain, loss of appetite, jaundice. You may feel like you will pass out, hallucinations, tachycardia or tremors. Breathing problems, loss of coordination, difficult urination etc few effects can be attributed to these drugs. Consult a neurologist for the other symptoms like smell from skin and urine.
Avatar m tn I felt it was not that. Fortunately, I have not suffered major side effects from the Cymbalta which I know can be awful. Then recently on top of those feelings I started getting horrible pain in my wrists which I thought might be carpal tunnel or tendonitis...severe burning pain going up the tops of my arms. Then I thought well maybe it is related to my heart because of the palpatations and all of a sudden my blood pressure is high and doctor put me on metropropol.
Avatar f tn ) Anyway, I have no side effects right now from not taking the pills for the past week, and even though I now have a new prescription I can fill, I'm thinking about not filling it. I would like to hear from others who have weaned off of Celexa, either by yourself or with the help of your doctor. Did you do it cold turkey or a little at a time?
Avatar n tn Hi, One of the many side-effects of cymbalta is tremors.It can cause dizziness also.Consult your doctor and re-schedule the dosage. Goodluck.
Avatar m tn Of all the anti-depressants it appears to have the lowest incidence of sexual side effects. In fact, in most studies it had no more of these effects than a sugar pill (placebo.) Unfortunately, it can be associated with an increase in anxiety which, for many patients with mood disorders, is a difficulty they already have and do not want to get worse. Other side effects include sleep difficulties and increase in blood pressure. ● Mirtazapine (Remeron) – Another good anti-depressant.
