Dear Bubbles, I cried the day I had to stop taking my Cymbalta..... but, sadly it caused these very firm acne like places on my face. I was on 30mg. And switched right back to Lexapro no problems of withdrawal (for anyone wondering) . Great for my pain.... but not good for my skin, still in the process of getting skin better, the day I stopped started to improve Shame, because I actually hung my cane up for a while. Hope this helps anyone that needed some info. Also, I thought it might be my Adderral, but no...... Cymbalta was the culprit.

Has anyone else had severe as abdominal pain with duloxotine? I am on 120mg for 3 months and have been hospital three times with severe abdominal pain. The Hospital keeps sending me home with stronger morphine as they do not know what's wrong with me. The morphine doesn't help. The hospital did a lot of tests, ct scans, ect, then gave up.

Yes.... it can cause sores in your mouth which “ could “ possibly be thrush.
This drug worked WONDERS for my pain..... but about 8/9 months in my face had a horrific rash from this medicine ( the insert does state it as one of the side effects ) I have been off for about 2 &1/2 months and my face is still a disgusting looking mess !!! I hated to have to stop taking it because it seemed to work so well, but my husband brought me to my pshycologist in the end...... because I became mentally manic, didn’t sleep, face was falling apart, I was making some really “not myself” decisions, and more that I don’t even remember. If you tolerate this med. then it can be a miracle , but you have to watch yourself AND symptoms on your body VERY closely .. the minute something doesn’t feel right.....go, RUN, to your doctor so it doesn’t progress out of control !! Hope this helps..... but most definetly causes sores on body, face, thrush in the mouth.....

I took Cymbalta for seven days. I woke up and couldn't urinate very much. I went to doctor the next day. I am in the lucky 1-2% of men who suffers the side effects of Cymbalta affecting my prostate and bladder. It has gotten progressively worse, I have a catheter 24/7, which has been changed out 3x already. I have been cystoscoped and found to have an inflamed bladder and enlarged prostate. I have to wait another three weeks for the urodynamics test to rule out other problems. I don't believe in coincidences. Cymbalta is the culprit and I am the victim.

I have been on cymbalta for about 2 months now. I have had so many strange weird things going on with my body. From a severe case of dry mouth, sores in my mouth, severe teeth clenching, unusual breakouts on my face, to constant itching all over my body. The skin on my face has also turned a weird color. I have constipation, dark weird smelling urine. I also noticed my mood is starting to be all over the place. The worst part of all, is that my issue with constant pain, hasn't improved at all. My face, hands, ankles are all puffy, and I don't look like myself right now. I'm having issues with sleeping, and I noticed my eye lids are twitching. I have to also include the fact that I dont ever remember having any type of reaction to any other meds I've taken in my life. I now look and feel worse than ever. The Drs response to all of this? He basically made it seem like this was all pretty much in my head, and told me to continue taking the cymbalta.

I was also on lyrica, but I decided to stop taking it to try and see which meds were causing all these symptoms. Now I'm worried about the side effects I will have getting off the cymbal ta. This same Dr refused to give me any type of pain meds, because he's worried about the "addiction" crisis going on. The sad thing about this is, is that those who have a major addiction issue, buy them illegally off the street. Somehow patients who do need them can't get them, because of the dealers who are selling them. This whole thing has been like a nightmare for me. My advice to others, stay away from cymbalta!!!

Be careful what you take with it. I had already had been taking strong pain meds with it and they had to increase the dose. Then serotonin syndrome set in. After two ER trips they took me off 60 mg a day and gave me some other meds to get me through withdrawals. I could not be still and when he tested my reflexes in the knee I almost jumped off the table.

The I had high temps for a week and after another Er trip landed in the hospital.

Re: Deborah (# 5)

You are soo right, WHO IS RESPOSIBLE FOR ALL WE SUFFER FROM MEDS, ALSO WHY DO THE DOCTORS ALWAYS SAY. NO,NO ITS NOT THE MED DOING IT. YOU HAVE TO RESEARCH AND RESEARCH YOURSELF TO FIND YOUR OWN ANSWERS THESE DAYS. Get off of it. My bowels shut down from it, and my friend got liver disease from it. It almost killed my cousin.
