Cymbalta 60 Side Effects

I have been taking Cymbalta for 6 yrs. along with Wellbutrin(150mg.) could it cause sores in my mouth? could it cause my hands to shake once in a while? ## Hi Mary, One of the side effects of Cymbalta (Duloxetine) is an "uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body". It can also cause blisters or peeling skin, rashes, hives, swelling in the face, and unfortunately, much more than this. The link below lists the vast majority of possible side effects, but I would highly recommend talking to your doctor about switching medications or opting for a natural alternative to this prescription if the side effects are too persistent or severe: I hope this info helps! ## I have been taking Cymbalta for many years,and I see that I have many of the symptoms. What I fear is that the effect th...

2 Replies RSS
Cymbalta is a horrible drug the side effects are horrible. It makes you have all of the side effects it says. Every single one. All I could think about was hurting myself. I felt crazy plus nausea vomiting bathroom insomnia ## Hello, Candice! How are you feeling? I'm so very sorry about what you went through. Everything you've listed can be normal side effects of this medication, as listed by the FDA, along with dry mouth and headache. However, not everyone experiences all of them, it depends on how each person's body reacts to the medication. Have you consulted your doctor? You may need to try a different medication. ## After 1yr of taking Cymbalta my skin has aged 20 yrs and so loose it is disgusting. Bruising, ear problems, itching, on and on Dr does not want to take me o...

I am looking for someone who has been on this medication for a while. I would like to know how fast it works and if there were any side effects with nausea at first? ## I had nausea in the begining but it ceased after a while. Had some problems with constipation too. I have always been baffled why someone with anxiety problems such as myself is put on an antidepresent. I felt really tired all the time. There were a few times when I would fall asleep at my desk at work or almost fall asleep driving in the car coming home from work. Sometimes I felt like I had no desires to do things just from being so tired. I have recently gone off of it and I have had some strange things happening. I have been getting some weird shocking feeling in my head and body. it's very strange. ## prescribed...

Cymbalta And Weight Gain
24 Replies RSS
I gained 68 lbs while on Abilify. Now four years later my weight is still 30 lbs over my normal. I still have some depression and very severe anxiety so my doc wants me to try cymbalta 20mg once a day. I would rather be depressed than severely overweight. Anyone know if cymbalta tends to cause weight gain or loss? ## Actually, one of its most common side effects is decreased appetite, so it might actually cause weight loss. Learn more Duloxetine details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, I have been on cymbalta for about 4 years now, after a suicide attempt. I started off on one capsule a day which wasn't enough so it was increased to 2 a day. I fell in love with life again. I find it amazing and I can't do without them. HOWEVER!

Side effects from stopping cymbalta

Help I'm on day 8 of going off cymbalta and I'm in so much pain I can't sleep my side hurts and I'm so down I just don't think I'm going to make it thru another day any help out there ## Hi Machelle, I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time with the Cymbalta withdrawal process. You're definitely not alone! As you probably know, for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is usually to taper off of them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. In addition to that, I'd also suggest making yourself a tapering schedule on a calendar to track your ...

antidepressants and weight loss
5 Replies RSS
Is there any anti-depressants available that actually can make you loose weight and not gain? ## There's no pill that can make you lose weight. Weight loss comes from calories in and calories out. If you are not eating properly and exercising on a regular basis then it is not the pills fault for having a negative effect on your weight. Surely the drug may have an effect on your metabolism, but this is to a small degree if you cover all the other basis of your health; including but not limited to: Adequate hydration throughout the day Plenty of fruits and vegetables Low fat consumption Exercising at least 3 days a week Adequate rest and sleep schedule Loving others around you and enjoying life Essentially, if you are missing any one of these factors, you will be more prone to experie...

Scary Drug Interaction Concern - I need answers!
19 Replies RSS
I am on cymbalta 60mg at night and 30mg in the morning along with 200mg of gabapentin 3x a day for fybromayalgia and mild depression. I was given adderall 30mgs and I took a few of them. I felt focused but had started to sweat excessively for a couple of hours and my pupils are dilated. I looked up the symptoms and it linked me to serotonin syndrome. Being freaked out I didn't take my gabapentin or cymbalta yet today. My question is...if I took 60mg of adderall this morning, should I take the other two scripts (cymbalta and gabapentin) today or skip them and wait 24 hrs for the adderall to leave my system? Do I need medical attention or am I being paranoid? My muscles are cramping up in my back and hands so I'm not sure if this is caused from skipping my meds for fibromyalgia or...

When did Cymbalta kick in for your pain relief?
5 Replies RSS
I started cymbalta 30 mg for a week, and now I've been on 60 mg nearing a complete month now. I have a couple chronic sports related injuries and a new issue in my neck causing some referred nerve pain into my head. My doc was hoping Cymbalta would help with both my pain and mood which has been down. Nerve pain is very depressing. I thought I was starting to finally experience mild pain relief the last few days but today I had a bit of a flare up in nerve pain again which was disappointing given the mild recent pain relief I was experiencing. I'm hoping this is a situation where my body is still adjusting to the medication, so ups and downs are to be expected? For those who take cymbalta for pain relief, how long did it take? Was it sudden? My doc wanted me to experiment for atl...
